    On New Years Day I picked up a new Savage 93R17 BV in 17hmr from Cabela's. It has the blued heavy barrel with grey laminate stock. Overall fit and finish of the gun is superb. The gun came with a Cabela's Pine Righe 17 tactical scope. Because of the extreme wind and windchills yesterday I only got to put 15 rounds through the gun at 50yds. To get it sighted I did 2 three shot groups and a 4 round group. I then fired a five round group. The last group was dead center, one ragged hole. Can't wait to get this puppy at 100yds.

    That is pretty typical of the 17 HMR and a bone stock Savage rifle. I have the same rifle in 22 and it has exceptional accuracy as well. In fact it came with a test target even that showed a 100 yd 5 shot group at less than 1/2". WOW.

    17 HMRs tend to be more accurate though. Marlin, CZ, and Savage all make great rifles for this cartridge that dont break the bank.

    I wsh it wasn't so cold and windy. With the -8 windchill my hands were numb by the 15th round.
