    Lots of good suggestions.
    Surprised no one mentioned 300 Whisper subsonic, this could meet the O.P. Criteria plus it could be loaded differently for bigger pests.

    Edit: Could be loaded with Unique too.

I suspect there are various concerns about big game poaching with these and similar calibers. While these events do happen they are rare compared to the numbers of legit hunters wanting only to expand their enjoyment in the field. So for now we are limited to rimfires and shotguns, muzzleloaders and archery for small game. Dangit.......
    I have to agree with you Thin Man. Over on this side of Tn the running joke is that the Stewart county deer cartridge of choice is the .22 magnum and deer season is all year long.

    That is one intimidating squirrel. I would be using my 9.3 x 57 with 278 grain NOE cast - but only as squirrel defense

    I doubt you’ll find a cartridge that’ll do better for what you’re wanting.
    Very cheap and easy to make brass.

    Mine is seriously accurate and a blast to shoot.
