Had one and loved it, but if I was looking for a .17, it would be the new 17 Winchester Super Mag.

Don't shoot mine much but very accurate. Shot a few squirrels over the years getting into my vents above the bonus room and its one heck of a hole. Mine is the Savage 93 with a bull barrel.

Lots of fun to shoot. Accurate out to a hundred and beyond. More expesnive to shoot than a .22 but at least you can find ammo for it now. My Savage 93 has a stainless helical fluted bull barrel and shoots a ragged hole at 50 yds and not much more than that at 100 if I do my part.
