Wanting to go with the Savage so I can get the bolt and trigger down, and will scope it similarly. Which of the three cartrideges would be better for cheaper practice for CF gun and doping?
The little 17 is the flattest of the rim fires and savage makes a fine little 17 HMR with a
laminated stock and the accutrigger.
I have several 17 HMRs and have owned the 22 mag, the mach2 and a bunch of 22 lrs and
the HMR will shoot 1/2 MOA @ 100 yards and Is the most fun rim fire I have ever owned.
