I am going to purchase a Savage 93R17 FVSS rifle. Thinking about a higher powered scope(up to 14x or higher). I do want one that you can adjust for bullet drop for the .17 HMR.

What are my options?

I just mounted a Centerpoint 4X16X40 Mildot on my Mossberg 142 and I really like it. It's only $69.00 at Walmart and I would gladly pay twice as much for another.
Next time I am there, I am going to pick up a couple more of these scopes.
I used Millett High Mount Rings.

BSA makes a Sweet .17 that is available up to a 6-18X40. Once you sight it in, you can turn the turret to any yardage, and it's still zeroed in.

Hope this helps.

it seems like the reviews for the centerpoint are great. It looks like you can just hand adjust for elevation and it reliably returns to zero is that right?

BSA seems like a crappy scope and has mixed reviews.

I can't recommend one way or the other on these, but just letting you know about them:

I've got a Mueller AVP 4.5-14 scope on my Savage .17HMR. It's more scope than I need but for $100 it's a good deal.
