Im not a expert on guns by any means, I think it really depends on if you want a bolt action rifle or a semi-automatic rifle.
I believe 17hmr is a little on the expensive side. You may try looking at Remington, Ruger, and Marlin for a rifle in 22 mag or 17. All 3 I believe make a bolt action rifle for both those calibers.
Here is a semi auto in 22mag from Remington
You can look at their other rimfire guns on the site and see what you like.
Here is a list of Mossberg 17hmr rifles, prices dont seem to be too bad
The ruger 17's I found are on the more expensive end
This should get you going in the right direction. Hopefully others will come and add some more input and maybe some other types of rifles. Cause there are more for sure. They may have experience with them too. Also Marlin makes good 22 mag rifles. may want to check them out as well.
