Default RE: Anyone have a .22 mag?

Advantage of a 22Win. mag. is more power and range.

Disavantage is the ammo cost a lot more!! Also they make quite a bit more noise than a 22lr, but of course not as loud as the 22 centerfires such as the .223.

I really like a 22 Win. mag. and have used one a lot over the years. On smaller animials like squirells, they will blow a fairly big hole through them, so you have to pick your shots, on the other hand they kill much better on bigger varmits like coyotes too.

Really it's all about what you plan to use the rifle for, and are you willing to pay 5 times more for the ammo!
