Salams,

I always found the .22 Magnum caliber quite interesting and am considering buying a .22 WMR rifle soon. I want to use it for mild hunting. Can members please suggest .22 WMR rifle options and prices available in our markets and it's effectiveness as a caliber.

The only rifle I saw in the market the other day was a CZ (BURNO) asking was 75k.

Though i myself was quite intrested in a .22wmr at some time, but the ballistics of a .22wmr are only marginally better than a .22 LR, then what's the point in investing a significantly higher amount in the weapon and ammo. I would suggest if you want to medium range hunting then consider a .223 rifle, which is more potent than a .22 (any variant) and way more accurate.

A .556 or 223 is the way to go, with the ammo price also low (half or 3/4th) of a .22mag. The 556 has much more reach and oomph

if you are still interested in .22wm , try finding the HK version. Posting pics below.

@Abbas, .22WMR is quite potent when it is compared to the .22LR. This magnum bullet delivers hitting power at 100Yds(120 ft. lb) what .22LR delivers at the muzzel. One of our friend claims that he killed a Koyote at 200Yds. The animal droped dead and the hunter was not the only witness :) . Although this kill is wel beyond the MPBR(Maximum Point Blank Range =/- 1.5") 125Yds of the .22WMR.
Now comming to the rifle. I would recomend the most accurate of the available lot: ANSCHUTZ 1516. This rifle is simply great.

HassanJamshad's SAKO is quite beautiful and I think it has three different barrels. What price range does that and the Anschutz fall in ?

@StarFish Nice !

.223 is a good option but becomes an expensive one because of additional cost in terms of license requirements. This is the time to buy .223 cal ammo though. I have lots, wish I had more ! :cool:

Abbas Bhai Sako Quad comes with three spare barrels and price i paid was 190K. Anschutz 1516 should be around 80k-85k. One was available at Buksh Ellahi if that gun is not gone. He used to demand 90K-95K. Gun is a beauty. CZ's are no match to Anschutz neither in looks nor in the performance.
Don't be misslead by the name of the HK. These HK's (.22LR and .22WMR) fall bellow Brno. One of our friend sold two HK rifles in .22LR for 40K, offcourse for each. These guns were NIB.

Is it S270/S300 series, I'm mixing them up but one is .22Lr and the other is .22 WMR. Both of these are beautiful and accurate rifles, but I believe it was discontinued by HK way back.

Dr sb, the BRNO is no doubt a very nice gun. Are there any .22 Win Magnum versions available?

@abbas sahab,looks over price but shooq ka mool nahi:)

Extremely over priced. It should not be more than 80k at the very most but then as we all know Buksh Elahi and Sk. Saleem Ali are located on another planet altogether :)

@Abbas, yes that was an insanely high price.

Brother i never under estimate Brno. This gun is adiquately accurate to hunt even the smallest of the game. Unfortunately, when it comes to the shooting, being good is not good enough, rather being better is required. So, it is always better to acquire the best instead of being beaten by the best.
Brno could be considered as a top rated rifle had it had a sub MOA accuracy, smoother bolt, lighter and crisppier trigger, floating barrel, glass bedded action, finner sights and fancier finish. Otherwise, no doubt it offers much more value in its price. I am also a great fan of this fine rifle. ;)

@:)h jamshad shab,searching brno websites and forums mostly like brno 452 model.anschutz is high priced,good one,as sako no match with it unique style of diffrent barrels,i wish to fire two warmer and 5shots with your sako,as hunting i missed today,you are also at forum,weather is distubing:)

HasanJamshad

Sir i am just leaving for the range, yes weather is distubing i couldn't shoot with half of the accuracy yesterday.
CZ452 American is a beautiful model, these are available in Lahore. Finish of this model is much better than the famous Brno.
For the shooting part, you are welcome any time but not only seven shots.
