Re: 22 Magnum. What's the point?
the good thing about 22mags are, within 150 yds, you can take just about any varmint game out there. within 100 yds, you can take coyotes. The report is not so loud as to scare off every critter, as a 223 will. If you like pdog shooting , you can use the remmy premiers or the winny's at 30 and 33 grners respectively, to give you 150yd or longer shots. since pdogs have excellent hearing, they will judge your 223 for depth vibration, and start popping up at an extra long distance. Not so much with the 22mag, they will judge you at being in 22lr range, and they will be wrong. Plus 50 rounds for avg of 8 bucks, or at gunshows you can get 50 rounds for 6 bucks here in Houston, still cheaper than 223.
