I'm in the market for a new rifle and am looking for something in a rim fire caliber. I'm a fan of the look and feel of the Mannlicher style stocks, ala 10/22 International and CZ 455 Mannlicher and the Mossberg....Sorry, but I forget the model. My quandary is in wether to choose a tried and true .22lr like the Ruger or to go with something I'm much less familiar with, like a .22wmr, .22mag or .17hmr. This would be a rifle used mostly for plinking and occasionally for varmit or small game hunting. Suggestions and comments would be appreciated.
