Which do you choose 17HMR or 22 WMR.
Shooting ground squirrels... If I didn't already have another firearm in 22WMR, My choice would be .17HMR, for the simple reason of it being a flatter shooter and the bullet size isn't a concern. My .02I greatly appreciate the responses. I intentionally kept my original post vague as I wanted to stir the pot a little. I will say I'm impressed as all the posts where based of actual experience of use vs hersay. That happens so little these days.
Now to specifics. I have several rifles in 22lr and I'm looking for a rimfire that will push out and perform a little better of ground squirrels. From most of the posts it sounds like either one will work well for that. I guess I will look and see what kind of deal I can get on a rifle.
