To me it seem that the 22mag rifles are more choosey about the type of ammo, but just as accurate when things are right. We have a 10/22, TC Classic, & a Browning that will shoot almost any 22LR very accurately at 50 yards. However, our 2 Ruger 77/22Ms both have a ammo they love & everything else stinks. Funny thing is they both want a different ammo, but with the 22LR guns if one likes a ammo so do the others.

Razor, do you have one of those shooting funnels that directs your grouping and narrows them up at 100 yards, but doesn't work till after 50? Just teasing ya, thought your post sounded funny the first time I read it.

Can you give a quantitative description of your accuracy? IE, groups at 100 and 50 with your mag, and groups at 100 and 50 with your LR?

In these threads, the discussion about the inherent accuracy of the .17 HMR vs the 22 WMR always shows up. As an owner of both, I have noticed that the .17 HMR NO recoil, whereas the .22 WMR does have a measurable amount. If I don't have a good shoulder weld with the WMR, my groups open up. I can set the HMR on the ground and pull the trigger with nothing on the butt and It will group the same. Go over the basics again, check your shooting technique, and remember to get a good weld to the shoulder (not a death grip that makes you shake all about) but you get the idea.

You can buy CCI MaxiMags from Sportsmans Supply on AA all day long for $93 for 500 rounds with free shipping. That's 9.3 cents per round.

I'm not a football fan. I'd as soon take a Clorox enema as sit in front of the boob tube for several hours watching a game.

Sportsman's Supply is a very well established seller on Auction Arms .com. I bought 500 rounds of CCI Maxi-Mag from him 2 weeks ago for $93. No tax, no shipping. I see that he still has some more up on auction.

3" groups

I get about 3" groups (5 shots, CCI Maxi Mags) at 100 yards
from my Marlin .22 Magnum with the 22" stainless barrel.

That's firing from the prone position using my range gear bag for a rest.
Scope set around 8 power.

This is about the same accuracy I get from a few of my .22LR rifles.

I've tried the lighter bullets in my Marlin bolt action, but it strongly prefers the 40-grain bullets.

When I borrowed a friend's Savage in .17HRM, it shot considerably tighter groups, and it sounded quieter, too.

But I want to keep my .22 magnum for hunting coyotes, including taking a chest shot at 100-125 yards. That means I want a big heavy bullet to drive in deep and penetrate ribs if I hit 'em.

I used to have a savage 93fv that would shoot cci 40gr hp ammo ($10 a box at wally's) into a 1" box all day long, and on the rare occasion I found some 30gr vmax (cci or hornady) it would do near a half inch group. I never shot the 40gr at 200 yards, but group size with the 30gr went to about 6"
I sold it because $10 a box for plinking ammo was just a bit steep for me, but would be a great option if you wanted to hunt something at a little longer range than the 22lr could.
