I quite fancy getting a .17 HMR rifle for foxes and hares as it's the minimum permitted calibre for both and we have loads of hares on our shoot. I've seen that both Savage and Mossberg do rifles in this calibre at a decent price, but I don't know anyone who actually has one of them.
Have any of you experience with either the Savage 817 series, or the Mossberg 93R series of rifles? Are they worth buying?
If not, does anyone have any other recommendations for a similarly priced rifle in this calibre?
