    I would suggest you try it before you part with your cash?

    I own a Savage in 7mm-08 which (with a trigger tweak - even with the Accutrigger) is superb, as was a 22-250 Savage I used to own BUT several years ago I bought a new 93R17 and have owned more accurate watering cans.

    A real piece of ****e and it quickly went back for a full refund before I bought an Anschutz (which also did not last long in my cabinet).

    Just to quantify - I really do not like the 17HMR. Over hyped, very wind sensitive and seems to promote some silly shooting. Just my opinion.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    I have a Savage Striker pistol built on a left handed 93 action. Mine is a 22WMR and is superbly accurate. In fact, years ago when Marlin ran a customer/shooter's Forum attached to their website, there were some displaced Savage users there. One was a Las Vegas police officer who participated in a comp site called "Prooveit" where shooters posted their 100M groups. Like an electronic postal match. His largely-stock Savage bolt 22WMR rifle won the comps with an average of six consecutive, 5 shot groups that measured .446" at 100M. His smallest group was in the low .3's. This was using Federal FMJ 40 grain. Yes. Savage rifles shoot, at least in 22WMR.~Muir
