Thank you all for the great imput.
Was considering the .17hmr,... but ammo cost and muzzle report counts it out in a big way for me.
I know the .22lr has its limitations but it will fit most of my needs. I'm a bit a fan of the round being that it was the first caliber I've shot as a young kid and that there has been so much development of specialty ammo. The .22lr has come a ways...
Forget 150 yards..., If I can hit a golf ball consistently at 100 yards with match ammo on a calm day
, I'd be very pleased
