A .22 is considered a varmit caliber. Poachers often times use .22's to take down deer and generally it is illegal to hunt deer with rimfire or centerifre rounds under .22. Use a .22 for small game, rabbits, squirrels, things of that nature. Trying to take down large game although possible raises ethical questions. A .22 LR round will probably have a velocity of between 1100 and 1250 fps, while a pellet gun I guess would be around 700 fps and could take down small game but if you don't feel confident in one shot one kill I wouldn't try it.
