They are accurate and ammo is more available around here than 22 LR or 22 mag.I have only used mine for target though.If you won't use it for small game consider a quality air rifle for serious plinking.
I love my Savage 93. With Federal/Hornady ammo the accuracy is insane on these guns. On paper I don't own a better shooting gun. Great for small game, fox, groundhogs, and fall turkey. Ammo is a little more costly than .22 but easier to find. Everything I hunt that it's legal for I've taken at least 1 with this gun and it's done a fine job every time I've pulled the trigger.
