Which rifle to choose?

whats going guys, I was looking at buying a .22 magnum, I found two rifles i realy like. The 2 are a Henry lever action rifle and the other one is a remington model 597 semi-automatic rifle. I was wondering what your oppinions on both the rifles, I would use them for Hunting the raccoon, fox, opposum and maybe a coyote. Other than that i would use it for target. Which is better for those activities. Here is a link to the page with the guns on it giving all the info you need.

Henry lever action- http://www.ableammo.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=9935_13987_14246_...

Ohh yeah.... What is the maximum accurate range of a .22 magnum? Thanks.

Haven't used either of the mags you mentioned, I got the much cheaper Savage 93 w/AccuTrigger(adjustable from 1.5-6 lbs. An advantage for target shooting. Very accurate .
I haven't done any serious target shooting with the 22 mag to address you max accuracy question. I can't find a day with no wind that isn't snowing or raining.

You might want to look at CZ I have a CZ 452 and it's a great rifle! You can get one for around $350 Put a nice 4x leupold on it and you will have a sweet little rifle.
