Stands the Test of Time
I bought this exact model 3 years ago, and have fed it pretty much Hornady V-Max ammo the entire time.
I did upgrade the scope about two years ago to a Bushnell Banner 17, but the basic scope was fine out to 150 yards before the upgrade. I wanted to take it further and the stock scope was just not good enough for my poor eyesight.
This is one of the most accurate rifles I own, and this specific rifle has been instrumental in several other friends and family buying a Savage 17HMR. There is something about breaking clays at 250 yards with boring regularity that just does it for folks. My 11 year old nephew can handle it just fine, as can his 54 year old grandmother.

Great Little Rifle
I recently purchased one of these rifles and installed a 6x18x40 BDC scope. Wow! What a package. I bought it to go varmit hunting with my friends. We wound up rabbit hunting a lot and with this rifle you can put a lot of "meat on the table". Once the scope was sighted-in at the range, 150 yard head shots became almost routine! I use 17gr V-Max ammo exclusively. For the money, this is the most fun shooting I've had in a long time. I recommend the Savage Arms 17 highly!
