Impressed with my 17WSM.

Accurate, too! My Iowa legal limit of six. It is also pure death on tough varmints. These were shot with 20gr. Rifle is Savage BMAG.

When the news broke of the Savage A17 .17 WSM Sporter about two years ago, I ordered one. Savage is now shipping them and I still wait for delivery. What early reports I have read said the rifle likes both 20gr and 25gr. Function is also great.
l have owned ONE Savage in my lifetime. Twas a recent Thumbhole 17 varmint. A total pain, gave it to my son. He still cusses me.

My all-time favorite rimfire rifle company is CZ. l long for a CZ457 Varmint in17WSM
Thanks for the info. I have one with Savage, and not to happy with the accuratic. I am going to have the smith look it over and see if we can get it to settle down.
l took REVENGE on my Son with that Savage in 17HMR. Showed that fancy laminated thumbhole stock w/10X Leupold. lt was love t first sight . l even took his money. He just looks at his guns. l'm safe. He's HAPPY. I had a No Savage Day
I had to pressure bed mine with red RTV silicone at the forearm/barrel junction.

Been super sweet accurate ever since.

PM me if you need pics of solution.
So you applied forearm pressure to the barrel? I have heard of shiming the barrel at the action. I am going to place it with the smith and see if he can d0 straight it out.
Also like for a CZ in 17SWM rifle. Not sure if they are still making them.
