Nice .17, Sage. I have one of the heavy barreled Savage 93 series.
They are surprisingly accurate rifles, and hold their own to about 200 yards. The 17 grain polymer tip bullets DO get pushed around by wind very easily, but if you learn to read wind, that can be handled.
I'm getting about 0.4 inch 5 shot goups off the bench at 100. Have a bit more glass on mine.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
