Re: Looking to buy a 17HMR
I have the Savage heavy barrel. It was a gift back when the 17 came out. Gun shoots great, although its about as a pretty as a fencepost. The Marlins are better finished guns. My Savage had a poorly machined magazine box, but I had it fixed. They are alot of fun to shoot, however in my experience, not great to hunt with. Sometimes it kills a chuck like magic, other times its not so pretty. Shot placement is key for critters bigger than squirrels. Either way you will have a ball with it .
