    Hornady Magnum Rimfire. It's a good little round, I've got a Savage 93 in that caliber, and it's a tackdriver out to 100 yards or so.
    I may not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    I know, I know. You're thinking "Wikipedia!?!?!" But it is a good little resource for little questions like that. I wouldn't trust it for O.A.L. of a cartridge of but for little stuff it is good. It is also peer reviewed and you know us gun nuts aren't going to let factually incorrect information last long on a peer reviewed website

    My sons each have one. Mossberg in one case, Savage in the other. They both have excellent accuracy, according to the offspring.

    I shot the Savage at the Trigger Time indoor 100 yard range about a month ago and I thought it was pretty sweet, but I was not used to the gun, so my groups were a little off. It could have been the wind at that indoor range, though.

    The cartridge, compared to .22 Magnum:

    Trouble is, these jerkwads can pass dumb, self-serving, agenda-driven stupid laws much faster than we can beat them down in the courts. And they're well aware of that.
