Someone please smack me!

For some reason I keep thinking I should pick up a 17hmr. Don't know why, I have a 22 mag. So chime in, which is your personal favorite... And why I should/shouldn't be looking at a 17.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

ACCU-TIP.GOOD LUCK ON WHAT EVER YOU DECIDE.

Why not have both. I like having choices in the gun safe. I'm pretty sure I would never say I should not have bought that rifle, when I'm lying on my death bed.

Re: Someone please smack me!

a plus is 17hmr ammo seems to be always available while 22 mag is spotty. at least around this area.

The 17's accuracy is just insane. Best rimfire rifle I own and that's saying a lot.

Get it. You'll love the accuracy. I have a Marlin and shoot groundhogs with it and crows when on they're on the ground. I have a Nikon Pro Staff 3x9 on it.

Yep,this comparison has been goin on for sometime but the accuracy and smackdown on small critters can,t be beat with the HMR compared to the mag and I have both.Since I have had the HMR I haven,t even takin my mag out of the safe.
