You need to look at the newer ammo for .22WMR to see the booyah in it...I've never seen a use for 22WMR. But I've had my eye on an XT-22/17 for a while now.
Useful rifle caliber list:
.223/5.56 (though I prefer 7.62x39 in its place, or one of the newer intermediate cartridges like the Grendel or Blackout)
Something like .308, .30-30 .30-06, etc.
After that we start getting into material rifles, and how many people need one of those?
there is most definitely .17HMR speed available but with a Bigger Bullet!!
Hornady's V-max 30-grain runs 2200 FPS...and there are others...
Of course, there's still the 50-grain SMACK that a Federal Game-shok gives a coyote at 150-160 yards out of a Marlin 25MN or XT22MVSR
I like DRT coyotes!!
For fast-followup results, find a Marlin 922M semi-auto .22WMR and pump bullets downrange with a quickness!!
Or there's the 1894M & 57M lever-actions...simple, effective, last forever
