Yes that is sweet I might have to wait and save up for that bad boy

I have a Savage in .17 HMR. I don't think if has the accu trigger. I can hit a dangling string at 100 yards. The gun is more accurate than I am.
A big plus is there is a lot of ammo out there for it.
I have a 24x 50mm scope on mine. I can see the twinkle in the groundhogs eye before I pull the trigger.
It is very loud compared to 22lr.
I paid $300 for mine a decade ago.

Nice rifle and congrats! Does it have the accu trigger? If it does, do you see what I mean on how nice it is?

I have a Savage 93 .17 HMR and love it. Beats the pants off my Ruger 10/22 and shoots Better than my Marlin .22 bolt action.

Last year I bought a Savage 22 mag, and a CZ 453 17HMR. Haven't shot the CZ but once so far. We'll see this spring. I do like the Savage, but the CZ has it in the fit & finish dept., plus they have an outstanding reputation.

I bought a Marlin 917V a few years ago. Paid $200.00 and put a 4-14x40mmAO
on it that I did not care for on my CZ527. It shot 17gr like crap, but liked 20gr. After a few hundred rounds, I tried 17gr again. Shot fantastic. It really likes Hornady label ammo. Just a fun round. It is not a replacement for .22lr. Bobby, What scope did you put on it??
