I own a Savage Model 93 in 17HMR. I bought it customized with a Harris bipod and a Bushnell 3200 scope. I love it so far, but am going to swap the scope for a Leupold. Other than that, it's a tack driver. I've tested it with four different factory loads (Remington, Hornady, Speer & Federal). So far, it eats the Remington and Hornady the best. I've come to realize that Savages are great bargains for that they are intended - out of the box very accurate rifles, and the next 17HMR I buy will also be a Savage, the BTVS model.
Not to be a thread hijacker, but since we're on the topic of Savage, I just checked their Website for the target/competition rifles I knew they were selling, but can't find them. What happened? Are they discontinued?
