Savage 93R17 FXP .17 HMR Rifle with Scope
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!

Good for the Money
I recently purchased this rifle just as a fun plinking gun, I was really excited to shoot it the first time and was counting on the Savage reputation of being one of the most accurate out of the box firearms available.
The first thing I noticed is the magazine feels very cheap and light weight.
Secondly, myself as well as two other friends could not hit a sqaut with this thing out of the box, had to tune in the scope before we could even get on the target at all.
After that, I love the gun, even with the light weight clip if had the scope been on I would have given this gun 5 stars.
This gun is now every bit as much fun to shoot as I hoped it would be.
I have not been hunting with it yet but do look forward to it.
