what the ballistics are on a .17 HMR compared to a .22 LR? Which one is better for Varmint hunting?

    Neither one has a proven track record for long range hunting. Now the 22 Hornet or 218 Bee, that's a horse of a different color. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Just kiddin'. You can get much more info on the rimfire cartridges over at Info on 17HMR & 22LR

    I shoot them both and love the little guns too.

    dont know if it matters much up to 80yrds. Just today I dispatched of a chuck at about 50yrds with a 22lr. The 17hmr is better the farther you go out though. I think I might get a 22mag some day to try it out. the HMR is supposed to be good on yotes to. I tried and it didn't work but I have also shot them with a 22-250 and they run away.
