Yes, everyone acknowledges that to get a high score in .22 is more difficult than in .177. The question is, how difficult, and would a handicap level the playing field, and if so, what would be an appropriate handicap.

In the club league at Maldon, players do receive a handicap according to ability - like golf - and I have also been allowed a handicap when shooting .22, because there's few if any of us shooting .22 on a club night.
As handicap secretary my word is final
