I have the old 93r17 w/ no accutrigger. It came out shortly after I was given mine..... I had a gunsmith tweek the trigger (could have done it myself if I knew then what I know now). Factory components and 5 mins with a very fine grit wheel. Buddy was the gsmith and sat there while he did it..... stupid easy and the thing breaks like glass now.Is your 17hmr the old one without the accutrigger? I have an old savage 93r17 and it is doesn't have the accutrigger. The trigger suuuuucks! It's really heavy and creepy and I've been thinking about getting one of those rifle basix replacement Sears for it, as that seems to be the only solution for making the trigger better. My gun also has the 6-24 tasco scope and it's hilariously large on the gun
If yours has the same trigger as mine, I wouldn't be surprised if that is part of the large group size for laying prone. But yes, the wind does blow those bullets pretty easily so it could also be that. I plan to use my 17 for this practice drill also but need to get a smaller scope put on first and I would do it at 50 yds with a smaller target size.
Feed, function, trigger, stock, ability to shoot 77gr bullets, scope mounting are all compromised on the Savage. But other than that- it’s great!
Brutal man, but it needs to be said.
If that one counts I’ll take 10 then. I figured I’d shoot about a 10 but was way off on how I got there. Hit 3/5 offhand and missed 4/5 kneeling supported. Will post target and thoughts from computer later. Great drill though.Line cutters count!
I can't buy the swfa 6x due to backorder, and its hell to find the dang tikka .223 as well...
Considering .308 or 6.5 tikka. Ammo cost isn't much different currently. It would be capable much further...
The 6x is backordered but the have the 3-9 in the same scope.
