Mossberg has an inexpensive .17 HMR, bought one, sold it two weeks later, bought a Savage 93 heavy barrel. Never looked back. Shoots like a laser- 5 rounds, 100 yards, 1/4 inch. Will run you a bit over $250, though.

I had a Savage 93 heavy barrel .17 HMR, before I gave it to my son. Arghhh.

From a bench at 50 yards I could sit there and put rounds through the same hole.

Marlin 917V has been very good to me. I can rhyme! It took a few hundred rounds of 20gr to get it to shoot 17gr well. Nice little rifle! I put an older 6-24x40mmAO on it and was not happy. Replaced it w/ a Bushnell 4-12x42mm and it is VG now. Pic is old scope.

It came off my .308HB. If you really want it, 40.00. You need to make sure the turret screws are tight. I thought it was way to much for .17HMR.

I have a pre-trigger savage m93. Heavy barrel and black laminate stock. Simply put its a tack driver. I struggled with the.scope it had when I bought it ($200) so I replaced it with a NIKON pro-staff 22 rimfire bdc scope in 3-9. Used the spot on software to figure out my hold distances and then took it to the dog towns in Wyoming. In light wind its deadly out to 150 and you can make luck hits out to 200+.

I like the 22LR in a Marlin or Savage. They both offer lots of choices. I'm sure you'll find something in your price range. Another sleeper is the Winchester Wildcat. 17HMR is too expensive to plink with, I prefer 223 to 17HMR.

dks7895 With 17hmr going for $10.25 to 16.00 a box for 50 rounds at any store and being very accurate too its very hard for a 223 ammo to be cheaper , Only stuff like tula can almost do that and the better .223 nope ,can't do it with cost of 5.00 to 29.00 dollars for 20 rounds. First you have to find cheap ammo local or hope wally world has some in stock. Then it still ain't always cheaper. Don't for get shipping cost if ordered. And most all 17's can put there rounds in a pop can bottom at 200 yards too. Not may Ar's will do that even with good ammo at twice the cost of the rifle. Its way more on what your looking for .
