I'm a huge fan of the 17hmr. I think it outshines 22s in almost every catagory. But in this case, I would definitely take a 22mag over a 17hmr. !7s have poor penetration against bone. My one question for you would be.. Do you really think in a survival situation, you're going to be shooting deer? Id be consentrating on birds in which case the 17 is perfectly suited.
