Decide on a RIFLE and then specify 22WMR. I know of a double rifle in 22WMR that cost the guy over a hundred grand. Autos and bolt actions are much cheaper.
Any single shot 22LR can be altered to 22WMR, repeaters and autos are much more complicated.
I'm not looking for work, but can help you plan the project.
