I just got a Ruger 96 in 22 Mag and a Savage 93 in 17HMR, infact I just rough sited them in today. So far to my surprise the Ruger seems to shoot better groupings than the Savage does even with shooting hollow points in the 22mag. I do have a feeling though that the Savage will come arround once I get it dialed in better. Now if you wana have real fun with them a 22-250 is the way to go for me. I got a custom built Mauser actioned 22-250 that I shoot 45 grain hollow points in. Turns a groundhawgs head into a sack of Jello.
