22 mag vs. 17 hmr



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been thinking about getting a 17 hmr. A 22 mag just has more power though. I was thinking about getting a 17 for its long rane or flat shooting i should say. But lets say i sight in a 22 mag at 50 yards, what is the drop going to be out to 100 yards? Thanks.

That depends a little on which round you're shooting.....but on average I believe my chart says 7 clicks from 50 to 100

Sounds about right
Using Federal 33grain HP's I zero at 100 yards and 50 is only going to be .38" out, so still a dead right there hit

Yep, sight at 100 yards. Works great for me. I have to hold a little lower at 50 yards cause I'm running 40 grain hollow points. A friend shoots the Remington 33 grain v-max and they are very accurate. As soon as my 800 rounds of CCI Maxi Mag are gone I'm going to try them.

I was undecided about converting my 77/22 to HMR when I first got it. I decided to stick with shooting 22 mag. It has a pretty good punch on small game.

BMP, if you can....try Hornady 30 gr V-max. Almost exactly the Remington but cheaper. I have an order in that is barely over the $9 cost of maxi-mags.

Where from? I've had good luck with the Hornady Mach 2 V Maxes. Maybe I should try the Hornady 22 WMR's first.

Try them first. My rifle loves the Remmy 33g V-max rounds, but sprays the CCI/Hornady 30g rounds like a blunderbuss.

If it was one it'd be the WMR but both is better.
