    Na I was just putting it out there as another option.. Whats best probably depends on the conditions he's going to be shooting in and what range of animals he's shooting

    In terms of performance in the wind, some people will argue the mag to be better and others will argue the HMR to be better. Google .17HMR vs .22mag and you'll get heaps of opinions on them

    But BRADS Marlin sounds like a good deal and Marlin generally make good rimfire rifles

    I love my 17 and two rabbits and a hare shot on Sat were round 150 metres across rolling hill! The 22mag with the new ammo will be just as affective at those ranges but I believe range will be the only diff. The Mag shoots a slightly heavier projectile Brads got a good deal!
