Default Savage 17HMR Range Report

I'm not big one typing these up, but I took the new bang stick to the range today with the kids.



Took a while to get it sighted in. The rounds were bouncing all over. Turns out I forgot to completely tighten the mounts to the rail.

I finally got it hitting the crosses on the target so I adjusted over to my son's target a little to the left of me and put the last four rounds into the nickle to dime sized target at 100 yards.





Then I just had fun watching the kids shoot stuff.

Oh yeah. I think the hard part is going to be getting it away from my oldest son.
Oddly enough, my 9 year old prefers the Mosin Nagant that nearly kicked him off of his stool with every shot.

I picked up a savage .17 HMR last year and absolutely love that rifle. I like the stock on yours. Here is a pick of mine.
