22mags are ok,but need a real good hit to kill a ground hog. I perfer the 22 hornet. Longer range and you get instant kills on groung hogs no matter where you hit them. For a cheap rifle the handi rifle fits the bill.

I shot hundreds, maybe several thousand of Jackrabbits back in the 50-60s. We could sell them for up to $1.25 to mink farms. They weigh about 25 lbs. Flattened most of them with Winchester Model 61 WMR, open sights. 22 Long rifle was rarely one shot kill. I paid 88 dollars for it new in the box in 1959, and got 5 silver dollars as a "rebate". Worth about 2k today.The silver dollars, 50 each.

25 lb jackrabbits? They must eat good where you were! I've shot hundreds in New Mexico and they might hit 4-8 lbs. I have 2 model 61s. My dad bought the magnum around 1960 to shoot sandhill cranes and "domestic" coyotes that his Rem 121 .22 just wouldn't drop. Love the 61's!
