So i've been considering a rimfire rifle for some time now but unsure on the round i should go with. Im pretty set on one of Marlin's bolt action rifles with a magazine and was set on the 980s in .22-lr until i started thinking about the .22-wmr and .17-hmr loads. The biggest reason for this rifle would be cheap shooting. I only started considering the wmr and hmr loads because the .22-lr seemed to small for a rifle round. But now price seems to go up considerably. I havent really looked into ammo for the wmr or hmr much at all though. I know the hmr has got very popular over the years too. So for the people that know more about the rounds and the prices, fill me in? Thanks in advance.
