    Not as flat as HMR but point and shoot for a rabbit's head from 25 - 115 yards with 35 gr v-max; no issues with ammo as in HMR arises from the necking down process, WMR is straight walled; ammo choice from 25, 30, 33, 40 & 50 gr; ammo choice from polymer tip, hollow point, soft point, FMJ; and the best bit you can own them in a semi auto.

    Guess which I prefer??

    Does the wmr have a louder crack than hmr

    +2 for Boydy47. WMR is ace on rabbits out to 150yds and better on a fox that just appears when you weren't expecting it. Much less wind affected, but the downside would be more ricochet-prone compared with .17HMR's frangible bullets. Both as noisy as a .223....

    I think purely on the issues I've heard regarding ammo with .17hmr alone ...I would avoid and go either .22wmr Or a .22 hornet

    Past issues with HMR ammo appear to have been rectified anyway. Try the Advanced Search Bobby.
