Any given item has a value relative to it's need and usefulness.

A .22 lr rifle is good for varmint control and small game hunting.

Rats, Nutria, Squirrels, Rabbits, Possums and Prairie Dogs all have a "Value" as a small game animal and can also be nuisances.

A .22lr can be a very effective way of eliminating these as a pest while minimizing damage to surroundings and the meat.

There are also, as pointed out, many different ".22" rounds including the .223 just as one example.

While I personally don't have one, there are enough .223 proponents that I'm not going to totally short change it as a viable round for a variety of reasons.
