I have the savage 93F 17 HMR. This rifle is amazing. The price is right and the accutrigger works and feels just right. I mounted a cheap 4X Simmons scope on mine, and can pretty much shoot thru the same hole all day at 100 yards and that is no joke. I have owned many .22 cal, and 17 cal. rifles through out the years, and in my opinion, this rifle is the best buy out there today for a 17 HMR. Again, thats my opinion on this particular Rifle and Caliber. If you know someone who owns on, take it out and shoot it, you won't be disapointed.

My Marlin 917v, with 3-9x40 Leupold VX-2, is the most accurate out of the box rifle I've ever seen. Not fancy, not expensive, but a damn accurate rifle.

Marlins are nice rifles but will not shoot with a Savage and the accu trigger is so hard to beat. Mine breaks like glass at 8 OZ and is 100% safe. A good trigger makes a huge difference.

Me, I'll spend a little more to get the best for a decent price. A rifle can be a lifelong investment, especially a RF, as long as you take care of the barrel, the darn things last forever.

The basic wood stocked Savage with the bull barrel and accutrigger can be had for just over $200. wholesale. The one's with the fancyier stocks cost more, but that basic one will shoot as good as the higher priced versions.

My 22 LR shot in the low .4" range, which is good for a .22, I had my gunsmith accurize it and on a good shooting day, it shoots in the .1" range with a best of .117", 5 shots @ 50 yds. The .17's shoot even better than the .22's.
My savage outshoots CZ's and stays with a lot of $5000. Annies.

Just my 2 cents.

I am definatley one to spend a little more on a goof RF rifle. The more I spend the more likley it is I will keep it.

I like both the Savage and the Marlin 22 WMR, but ended up buying the Marlin. I took a look at the Savage and may end up getting that in the .17HMR. I know lots of people enjoy their big calibur rifles, but I am more a RF fan. The price is right, the ammo is relativley cheap and they are so darn fun to shoot!

I have a Marlin 17HMR V Model. I purchased it three years ago and at the time I was not impressed with the trigger. I believe they have corrected that at the present time. I put a Rifle Basix trigger in mine and set it at 2.5 Lbs. It is one of the most accurate rifles I have. It will group 1/2 to 1 inch groups at 100. And does great of Crows. Savage also makes a nice rifle and the Accutrigger is good.

John, I bet you were using a vise to get those groups. My point is the Marlin, as others have stated is a great rifle. I can't say Savage rifles are bad, I own one. When I shot NRA smallbore, it was irons only. 50 feet. The bull was .22". My best scores were w/ a Savage M44. There was no accu-trigger or accu-stock. Taking out the Human element has to be some what demeaning! I'll take a 2 stage trigger and a 70 year old rifle any day. One of my best shooters is an old JC Higgins single shot .22. There is no scope, no way to mount one. I would take wood chucks or crows at 100 yards un-supported, except for my body as a kid. No one ever said it can't be done. I don't think I ever missed. The Marlin is a little rough, the extractor is a weak point, but overall it is a very capable rifle. I have 2 Marlin rimfires and both are outstanding IMHO. But I'm not humble!
