I have .22 mags and a .17HMR. If all of my shooting was 100 yards and under I would stay with the .22 mag. But, at further distances the .17HMR is a hoot. Based on the limited information you provided it is hard to say which would suit you best. The distance at which you expect to be shooting would be my first question. What you expect to shoot would be the 2nd question.
