How Accurate Are .22 Rifles For Small Game?

Hey guys I am thinking about buying either a .22 rifle or a break barrell pellet gun(like the gamo whisper) for shooting squirrel and other small game. I was wondering how acurrate are .22 caliber rifles from 50-70 yards with a good scope mounted on them. I have heard wonderful things about the accuracy of pellet guns from gamo, but I wasn't sure if the .22 bullets shoot as straight or drop a bit at such a range? They are both priced about the same. I have very little experience with both and any advice would be much appreciated.
