Don't have any experience with the 17 MachII, so I have no data upon which to make a comparo.

besides comparing a lr size ctg to a 22mag length ctg is like comparing a 9mm to a 45acp in which case we ALL know the 45 is better!

Given that prices are similar at most retail shops, the HMR is a better bet than the HM2.

I don't have any experience with the HM2 but I have a Marlin 917v (HMR) and it is a tack driver. Groundhogs don't seem to like it very much though. The HMR also shoots somewhat flatter than the HM2

Look at it this way, which is better a .22 LR or a .22 Magnum? You are shooting the same bullet out of either of those rounds, necked down to the .17 caliber. If you are using the caliber you will be choosing for hunting small game (tree/ground squirrel size), I would think either would suit your needs. Anything larger, I would go with the .17HMR. Check Midsouth for the best prices on ammo ($7.18 a box) and put a decent scope on the gun. The HMR is very accurate and deserves good glass.
