17 HMR Decisions


Recommended Posts

So I am looking for a fun 17 HMR to shoot, looking to spend around $300. Savage has a few really nice ones. I primarily want one that is ultra light that I could throw over my shoulder and run out into the desert or the mountains without much thought for the weight. If it were a wood stock I could modify it to take out  most of the weight and maybe put a spot for some extra ammo in the stock. What do you guys think? Anyone have experience with the 17?

I had a Savage Axis in 223 when I was starting to learn to shoot. For the price that gun was way accurate. Shot about 1-.5 MOA @ 100yds. More that I could have hoped for. I'm thinking if I find the right rifle I may be able to CNC a new stock for it out of aluminum with a quick release and make it a nice pack gun. We will see how feasible that is though  <dontknow>
