Default 22 vs 22 Mag poll

If you could buy either a 22 lr or 22 mag what would you get. Same identical rifle and wanting to shoot coons and stuff like that with a suppressor. Give me your thoughts

I've owned both and unless you are shooting long range (which can still be done with 22lr) the mag doesn't really seem to give that much. Coons, Skunks, feral cats, ect are all easily handled by the 22lr. Which on that thought, coyotes, bobcats, and even hogs can be taken out with the 22lr, if you have the right spot. Not much need for the more expensive higher velocity round. IMO

I have the same gun in 22 lr. Had it threaded and it's now my dedicated rimfire for my can. You will be happy either way.

.22mag for raccoons. I don't know anything about suppressors but I do know on a big boar coon a .22lr is weak sauce.

.22lr subsonic if you are shooting suppressed. I shoot hogs in traps with it. It will kill coons.

I shoot a self-built custom 10/22 and it is sub MOA at 100yds. Whisper quiet.

I have that rifle with a black stock in 22 mag. Buds had them on sale for about a year ago. I dont have a suppressor on it and its stays in my mule on a overhead rack. They are good guns for the money. It is very picky on ammo and the Remington Premiere(unavailable now) was the most accurate followed by Winchester HV. CCI would not group at all.
I put a junky Vortex 2-7 x 35 Diamonback on it .

These are tack drivers, I have the .22 and the .22mag, wanting to grab the .17 as well. Shooting the .22 with subs is pellet gun quiet.

22 sub will kill coon all day long ,Range is limited and may not expire on spot but if hit in vital he's dead just don't know it yet..but noise is minimal without supression...22 mag is great longer range but noisey compared to 22sub...try some diff brands of sub ammo ...barrel length affects noise level too..I have killed many Coyotes within 25y with my 177 pellet rifle. Shoot them in H/lung and they will be dead in less than 200y..

To get the best accuracy you should try many different ammo types. Mine likes the Ely Target the best. Sub MOA at 100yds

With a 22LR you will be able to find more accurate rounds. 22LR but my next one will be the 17 WSM.

Added this Ruger American Target the other day, shoots 1" at 100 with CCI HP. Sounds like a pellet gun with the can attached. 22 WMR ammo has been easy to find in the last 6 months. Stock up now.

Unless I want something very dead or I'm shooting something larger 22lr 0-50 22mag 50-100 100+ 17hmr.

22lr if I'm shooting a lot. I think the 22mag up close beats the 17 but 17 has distance. Straight hunting 22mag but find what it likes and stock up.

I been stocking up on the 22 mag the past few years. Shooting the PMR30 and have about 2000 rounds put back. I think I'll get the 17 HMR NEXT then the mag.
