Nice looking rifles Axxe,you did a great job on the model 60s stock refinish. The wood grain stock on your Savavge is sweet!

thank you! i bought the Savage almost ten years ago as it doesn't have the AccuTrigger. it was only available at that time with the synthetic stock on the heavy target barrel version. i never did like the factory stock. it always felt short and like i was shooting a youth model rifle. this was the first Boyd's stock i ever bought. i am very pleased with it and it made the rifle feel more adult in size with the way it fits me now. the stock was the biggest improvement to the rifle.

as long as you understand it's limitations, then it's an awesome round. because the bullets are so light, they are very sensative to cross wind while shooting.

my choice in going with the 17 HMR over the 22 WMR was simply because i wanted something for target shooting, not hunting. not that it can't be used for hunting, but IMO the 22 WMR is better suited for hunting.

on a still day, it's like a laser beam being shot.

Target shooting will be my main reason to and because it's some if the only rimfire ammo I see regularly.

i generally pay around $12-15 per box of 50 in 17 HMR. personally i don't find that too expensive for ammo.

i like the round and i like my rifle now after making it fit me.

Thank you! That Browning cost $475.00 new in 1992 or 93. They were special order and only offered for 2.5 years. The a-bolt action is pretty slick. I was offered $800.00 for it about a year ago. They also made Medallions that are still very nice. It is less then and inch off a bench at 100 yards.

The H&R is not a top break, It loads and unloads like an old colt single action, but is double.

I believe that's the price they had on the Hornady stuff at Wal-Mart here.
Do you feel that it's a good round out of a handgun? I've seen a Taurus revolver with a snub nose barrel and wondered how effective the round would be out of it?
