Savage 17HMR

Just bought a new Savage 17HMR with 4x9 Bushnell scope. Can't wait to give it a work out at the range whenever the weather ever breaks.

Good to hear all the positives. I'm hoping is as accurate as my Savage 22lr. If so it'll be a real tack driver.

Mine is the synthetic stocked, heavy barrel, model with their Accu-trigger, and it has proven to be much more accurate than the 597M I once owned.

I have the savage "mako" model with the laminated thumbhole stock. It shoots better than any rimfire I ever owned.

That accutrigger is adjustable and I turned mine all the way to the lightest setting,its great.

I have a 93R17FV, one of the first .17 HMR's Savage made without the accutrigger. I put a 6-24x Tasco scope on it.

Great rifle, very accurate.
