I'm looking to buy a 22mag or a 17 rifle, what's a good brand rifle in one of these caliber. Prefer one with a clip that is flush with the gun and a bolt action?

the marlins are great but the mag sticks out of the bottom,if you want the best accuracy the .17hmr is the best,if your wanting to use it on yotes more than squirrels or ground hogs id go with the 22 mag as you can get heavier bullets,i have both & both cost alot more to shoot than a reg 22.,mike243

I would go Savage unless you can afford a CZ for about twice the price.
