New toy added to the safe!

Was at a gun raffle yesterday and won a Savage 17 hmr. Cant wait to take her to the range and get her dialed in. Herd nothing but good things about this gun. Got to make a trip to the gun shop for ammo tho. What is everyone else shooting ammo wise? This is my first 17 hmr so what kind of grouping should I expect?

Each rifle is different as far as ammo if you do your part you should get sub inch groups at 100yds.

Re: New toy added to the safe!

I got a savage bolt action heavy barrel 17HMR (sorry the model slips my mind at the moment). It is a fantastic shooter. I get the Hornady brand shells for it and use it for 100yd groundhogs.

My aspirations are simple.
