Bobits, This has always been my mindset on WMR as well. I have always felt that the cost of ammo was greater than any added value relative to performance.
22shot seems to agree, as he is suggesting that he would trade his WMR for a 22 Hornet should the right deal come around. I tend to agree with him, and I have given thought to ordering the gun in 22 Hornet, however, the cost of the gun is about $200 higher. Nevertheless, given that I reload both 22 Hornet and 22 K-Hornet, the ideal is tempting.
Big Shrek is also correct, the WMR has been improved over the years and ammo options are much greater than they used to be. The Hornady ammo that he (and Swede, Hunterfisher and RC) recommends, seems to bring the WMR to a new level of performance.
STILL NOT SURE ... but leaning toward the 22 WMR.
