I would like to hunt coyotes on WMA property. Since WMA restricts bullet use to rimfires only....in your opinion,which caliber would be the best choice? 22 magnum or 17 hmr. Thanks

I use the 22 magnum. I bet either will get the job done.

I use a 22 magnum. get the fastest rounds you can find. faster rounds have more knockdown power.

Either will work as others stated,myself unfortunately with the way ammo is, I would consider which one has the most readily ammo available.

The 22 magnum is a better choice between the two.

Someone needs to read some ballistic charts and understand the difference between velocity and energy. ;). Your statement is far from the truth.

Don't leave us hanging.
I've never shot a 17. How was it?
