    Thinking about getting a Savage A-17, autoloader, in .17HMR. Anybody have or shot one? Intriguing little rifle. Thanks, SRG

    I would say watch Varminter Magazine on you tube.He seems to like them,but,as a magazine you sometimes have to write good reports

    He does do a vid on it and you can see it cycle and the accuracy.
    Sounds like a fun gun but it will be like a 22mag and expensive to shoot.If you can find ammo.

    Yeah, definitely not an uncontroled plinker! I was thinking mid-range sage rats and the like. Silly me! I have to call up a ballistics chart and check it out. :p

    PS: Yep, those stats will work for me! Surprised by the energy the little round gets up to!
