    Depends on your shot distance .My preference is a 22 hornet but that is 100 yds and under.That is the distance i shoot .I would give a 22 mag just under that

    Where I hunt, we're restricted to rimfire or shotgun at night. I went with the 22 MAG for a bigger hole and heavier bullets. I feel comfortable using it.

    My Savage 93? 22Mag is a fantastic night time calling rifle.
    The Heavy Federal cartridge is perfect for the task.
    Hole in Hole accurate off sticks to at least 100 yards.
    My Savage doesn't shoot the light bullets accurately.

    One benefit is after you mark your ranges, you have to really be in the show to develop the shot. 100 yards at night feels like you are going to be bit. Spine tingling.
