First, welcome aboard!
Yes, the Savage is a good setup for recreational or just semi-serious varmint hunting. They have come a long way form the "Salvage" days, quality is prettty decent. My buddy had the same gun you shot, I really liked it. The bbl profile inpressed me and the trigger (although it looked like caca IMO) did its job very well. No experience with other 17's, just that one so I can't even guess at the rest of you rquestion (alternatives).
You can prolly find a setup for less than 300 though, search around. As far as a bipod, its your preference. Depends on what you want to do with the gun.
Good luck!
