Hi mate, ewe (:D ) might find .22 harder work in terms of trajectory estimation, but why not? A lot of people, including myself use .177 due to it's flatter trajectory, but I also have an HC in .22, which is challenging, and a lot of fun to shoot.
Regards
Chris.

What ever your comfortable with will be suitable for hunting. If your thinking of becoming a serious challenger in HFT, .177 would be the best judging by past results, but if for the thrill of the day/s only, .22 would be fine.

The Harrier is available from DS with a left handed sporter stock & action. 50 shots at full power in .177 & 60 shots .22. The MkII with the reg, expect around 100 shots in .177. Come June/July, it should be available with the L/H thumbhole version. Phone Daystate for more accurate info.
Also consider th AA410, around 80 shots in .177 and already consistent enough not to need a regulator.
