I resisted the 22WMR for years thinking it was a 22 on steroids. When I finally succombed to the peer pressure I was pleasantly surprised. I love my magnum. Savage model 93.

I have and have had a lot of varmint caliber rifles. My best friend and school buddy from my hometown started getting rid of his guns (pressure from liberal wifey, I think) and he gave me his Marlin 57M .22 Magnum rifle that he used way back then when we went "chuck" hunting. I was with him the day he bought it in 1962.

I've cleaned it up and it still has the Marlin "Micro-Vue" 4x scope on it. My son used it this past summer for chucks. Nice rifle and it's a "keeper" for my Marlin collection.

The .22 Magnum is a good cartridge. I know-a box of .22 Magnum ammo is between $11.00 and $13.00 but so is .17HMR ammo and the heavier .22 Magnum bullet is more dependable under breezy conditions.

I looked into the .17HMR but didn't see where it offered anything the .22 mag wouldn't do better.Don't really see where it gets its popularity.
