Hunters and sportsmen testify to the accuracy and performance of Savage rifles.
Few manufacturers have the experience to build quality, strength, and dependability
into the action of a centerfire rifle like Savage Arms. Unsurpassed accuracy,
outstanding performance and unbeatable value make Savage rifles America's choice
in sporting rifles. With standard features like free floating, button rifled
barrels, dual pillar bedded stocks and the revolutionary AccuTrigger, no other
manufacturer offers you a wider variety of options in the most popular calibers
to meet all of your hunting and shooting needs. Whatever the caliber you choose,
Savage rifles has the action to match. And Savage rimfire rifles add more fun
to shooting than almost anything else for the money. From casual plinking to
serious hunting, the versatile line of Savage Model rimfire rifles can handle
Savage A22 in WMR is a decent rifle. It is very accurate, I sighted in at 100 yds.
I've used a variety of ammo from 30 to 45gr and all fire and cycle flawlessly. I like the stock, it fits well and is light weight. The accutrigger breaks crisply and
predictably the same every time and is one of the reasons the gun is so fun to
shoot. I put a Leupold VX-2 3-9 scope with high rings and not only lines up perfectly, it is out of the way to remove bolt, disassemble and clean gun. The rotary mags are a pain, but with practice and a good technique, they load ok and snap in to stay. It's nice to have them flush with bottom of stock, also. - DAVID
I had one of these this is a great rifle to hunt with I have drop deer where they stand at 300 feet sitting in a 15 foot stand it's light weight and accurate I'm getting me the same rifle can't go wrong with this Savage hmr 17mm rifle. -
You can't go wrong with this rifle or Able ammo. They didn't have the gun in stock but it only took 2 days to get it in, great customer service. The rifle itself is a nice color with a heavy barrel on it. I've shot around 100 rounds through mine so far with no failure to feeds. The bolt is very smooth after you work it in a bit. Make sure you buy a couple more 5 round mags so you don't have to keep reloading it. This rifle also shoots very well. I was shooting baby peaches about the size of a golf ball easily at 70 yards. Once you start shooting this thing you won't want to shoot anything else. I would highly recommend it to anyone. - GARRETT
I bought this rifle and scope combo at Able's Ammo a while back. At 100 yds it will shoot a tight group on a sand bagged bench. No kick. Feels great, solid but not heavy. Has the heavy stainless barrel. This is one accurate varmit shooting rifle. Coyotes for sure. It will drop a 300 lb hog with a well placed shot. I really like this rifle. Wish it had a larger magazine. If you want a good working rifle or just a fun plinking gun, this is the one. - CHARLES
As an avid shooter in my late 60\'s, I have owned this gun for a little over a year & target/plink often at my lease. Have probably shot 600 - 700 rds. using 7 different brands of ammo in 17 gr. Two were Hollow Points. The gun is very accurate & impressive, the trigger (set light) is very smooth. The barrel (while warm) shows no real heat problem after running 5 quick shots thru it. I have never had a problem with it. I come from a lot of experience shooting & hand loading 22-250\'s. To me this is just a smaller version and is an excellent shooter in the 100 to 150 yd. range. For a decent shooter, Coyotes will not be a problem. I outfitted it with a Weaver 3X10 Grand Slam. This gun/scope combo is light & easy to carry afield. For around $600. & the cheaper cost of .17 ammo you will have a lot of shooting fun. As to the brand of ammo that shoots best for me...it\'s the Hornady .17 gr. V-MAX.
