The .177 tend to have more velocity, but not by much. And the .22 caliber rifles have a heavier pellet, and the guns tend to be higher quality. As the .177 market is full of cheaper products.
If all you want to do is shoot tin cans in the yard a .177 is cheaper to shoot, and cheaper to buy, but if you want a quality accurate pellet gun the larger pellets drift less. And I feel like you can shoot them faster accurately, the fast .177's tend to be inaccurate.
I normally do pests with .22 cb rimfire out of a brake action NEF. Its quieter than my pellet guns.
