would you trade it

I have a Savage model 93 17HMR that i have had for about 4 years and i really like it but i have the oppratunaty to trade it for a Savage Model 11 pre accutrigger in 300WSM. So what would you do? I like the 17 HMR but i have found it is not really that much better than a 22. But with the 300 WSM the possibilites are plenty. Well what do you think.

    I traded my 17HMR for 7mm rem a couple years ago. It was a great decision. unless you have a young kid that can use it for practice, or have the varmint bug, go for the 300 WSM. not that I didnt like my 17, I just liked the 7mm way better. that is one sweet round (300wsm), and if nothing else you have a good action to build on. Just my 2cents.

    Do it! Great caliber, and plenty of aftermarket accessories.

    If you have a 22LR or 22 Mag, I would trade it on the WSM. I have a 300WSM and love it.

    Depends. Where & what do you hunt? Do you have any use for the 300? I probably would if the financial side is reasonable. I consider the 17 to be an excellent caliber for a very narrow nich of usage. The 300 however will cover a larger range of usage. I have no use for the 17 but I could use the 300 and if I decided to get rid of either I feel the potential market is much larger for the 300. That being said I hunt in the east and I find the 300 a bit large for my use so it would not be a preferred caliber for me.

    If you don`t reload and shoot the HMR alot you might want to think about it. Other wise jump on the deal, and if you don`t reload you could start.

    Well I traded it and am now the proud owner of a 300wsm. Never really had any desire to have a 300 of any kind but I just could not pass up the temptation. Anybody got any ideas where I can find some aftermarket stuff for the Savage Model 11?
