I was recently at BiMart looking at ammo, and saw that all the. 22lr was gone, but there was plenty of. 17, which I am completely unfamiliar with. Looked like mini. 223 rounds, and from what I read, it's a pretty high velocity round. But that's all I really know about it. So teach me! Is it fun and cost-effective for plinking like. 22 is? Would it be worth picking up a .17 for plinking, or should I look for a .22lr plinker? Just couldn't help but notice that .17 is easier to find right now, so I got to doing something dangerous... thinking!
