what is better for gopher hunting .17HMR, .22 or .22 mag. is the price of .17hmr and .22 mag worth the higher price than a normal .22 cal round. I ask this because on a good day we will go through 300 rounds while shooting and doing this frequently would be reasonably more expensive using the .17HMR (50 rounds for 8.99) or .22 mag ( 50 rounds for 9.99) vs using a regular .22 cal ( 50 rounds for 2.69 ). prices are in candian. Would it really be worth the extra money for gopher shooting.
