    Well I've got a good old Stirling .22mag bolt action. It shoots straighter than I can. Awesome on bunnies and hares where a centrefire is just too much, to far

    Put a decent scope on any you're sorted.

    Nice. Looking for a standard barrel 22 mag but it's really just reliability and accuracy over brand

    I do like the suggestion of Wierauch 60j / Krico. 301 Very good but not cheap. If price is an issue, Stirling used to make a decent one for the coin...

    Pretty much. With the price of 22mag and 223rem ammo so close I went straight to the 223. Way more versatile when something a little bigger pops up too. With head shots I still get to take hare and rabbit meat home with good shot placement, well at least when I remember to stop and grab some.

    Own both, but .22 mag doesn't see daylight too often anymore, I can hand load .223 for about the same price or less...
