I use a .22 mag or .22 lr with good results.

I have never shot a hog with a .17 hmr so I can’t compare it but I’m sure it would be just as good

If it weren't for predators I could just about hunt hogs exclusively.

never used a 22 mag or a 17, but I have killed a bunch of hogs with a .22lr hollow point to the ear hole


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

I think the gunmakers/ammo companies dont realize there is such a niche market for a powerful rimfire cartridge like a 22 WSM. Alabama isnt the only state that limits small game season hog hunting to rimfire only on its WMA's. I dont think it would ever be a mass market hit, but it would have to be at least as successful as the 17wsm?

You know...they used to make a big rimfire..5mm...i think one or two companies still make ammo...but its hard to come by..findin a 5mm gun is hard too....ive only ever seen one. I may be wrong, but..i think its been like 40 years since they made one...i may be confused tho.

I think the Remington Rifles were models 591 and a 592. circa about 1970 as I remember. You can still get one floating around on Gunbroker or at a gun show. TC Contender barrels are also floating around and yes I think someone is making ammo for them again.
