Savage .17 hmr
 
What's y'all's thoughts on this gun I want a gun under 300 and Larry's (arms dealer in town) has this savage hmr olive green with scope for $269. Is this a great gun or what I'm a big squirrel hunter and wouldn't mind trying out a .17 and passing on my .22 what y'all's thoughts on the reliability and performance of this weapon.

I have a marlin 917 and it shoots one jagged hole at 50 yards and under a dime at 100. Can't go wrong with a 17hmr

I to have the marlin 917v, and it is like a lazer beam, put crosshairs where you want to hit and squeeze the trigger, no recoil so you can see impact in your scope, I have shot savages and they to are accurate, the 17 hmr is an impressive little cartridge for sure, they are more accurate than I can shoot them for sure.

How much are the marlin going for? And what scope do you have on it

I bought mine 2 years ago at bass pro I paid 239$ for the gun, I have a 3-9x32 bsa scope on it, I eventually want to put a nicer scope on it, but for what I use this rifle for, what I've got works perfectly fine for the time being.

I also was looking at getting the savage 93r

Im in the same boat i act posted a similer thread about the savage vs the marlin. I already have a .22lr and love it. But i wanted a rimfire that would hold under an inch at 100yds. Its just a paper puncher for me. Sice i posted my thread i got to shoot both the marlin and savage in 17hmr and 22wmr. By far i like the savage your talking about in 17hmr and for the 22wmr the marlin gets my vote. Goin this week to pick up the savage. Hope this helps.

Yes it does do you think a 3x9x40 would be over kill for this savage .17hmr

As I posted my original comment, I got to thinking, so I got mine out and it is a 3x9x40 I don't think its overkill one bit, my wife's cousin has a h&r single shot in 17 hmr and he's got a 6x24 power on his lol

I've had two of them. I liked them well enough but I got to where I didn't use them much and went back to using a 22 mag. They are pretty fun for busting little critters though.
