Hey folks. Gotta quick one for you. looking at purchasing a rimfire for plinking and varmits. But what to buy. Looking at a savage but cant figure out if i need .17hmr or a .22 mag. From what I've been reading, the .17hmr seems to be more accurate out of the two, and ballistics are very close with .22 mag winning up to the first 100 yds, and after that the .17 seems to take over a bit. Energy vs. velocity right. Now the question. What is your experience with these 2. Is the .22 more effactive than the .17 past 100 yds. TKS & Happy shooting!
