Which caliber is more inherantly accurate out to 100 yards, .17 HMR or .22 WMR.

How about out to 200 yards?

I know accuracy has more to do with the rifle and the shooter than the bullet but let's just say you've got a great rifle and a great shooter. Which round would he do best with?

.17 HMR shoots flatter, however both will be strongly affected by wind drift at 200 yards.

Where does the .22 Hornet fall in with the other two calibers mentioned?

.22 hornet is an entirely different ballgame. Centerfire and the bullet is about twice the size...That being said it would be more effective at 200 yards than the other two rounds.
