After taking some time out to read up on this i have seen things in a new light.
It seems that the HM2 is nearly as flat out to 100 yards and the ammo is cheaper than the HMR,
Also it a better round for small game as it causes less damage to meat and pelts than the HMR but still with 17jacketed accuracy.
All in all i can't understand why its not taken off with better marketing..and more information to small varmint hunters such as as increased accuracy,flat trajectory out to 120yard,value of accurate shots(less ammo more kills) and still all cheaper than its big brother the HMR but strides above its parent the 22lr..
Is it going to be discontinued??
I hope not
JUST A NOTE:
The poll above is similar to 22lr ver 22WMR both have a niche and one is not there to replace the other, they differ in terms of noise, energy,
trajectory and damage to meat and over costs of ammo..
