Re: Savage -VS-Marlin Bolt Action Rimfire Rifles
I have the 917v marlin with bull barrell. I have not tried the Savage yet. I love my Marlin 917HMR. it is the most accurate gun I have ever shot. I have not shot anything except squirrells and it is excellent for them. been hunting for 50yrs, started with 22lr. remington and shot thousands of rounds, killed a lot of squirells. I think it is great practice for deer season and shooting my 30-06.
Hope to try the 17 on coyotes, been reading about people who do as long as you hit them in the head.
Good luck with your choice,I'm sure you will like which ever one you pick, they are both good guns and calibers.
