Well I bought a Savage 93 .17 HMR. It doesn't have a heavy barrel but it shoots tight groups. At 50 yardsI can cover 3 shots with a dime. Now am ready for the woodchucks.

yep, I've shot dozens with .22s, works great especialy hypervelocity rounds like the stinger...but regular hollowpoints finish them off pretty fast under 50 yrds too with a good chest shot. It is marginal though so bullet placement is key.
