Savage 93R17 .17 HMR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Savage is homely and we tried not to like it, but we came away from our test pleased with the accuracy and field-handling of this budget rifle. It doesn't have any frills, but we liked that it came withWeaver bases, giving scope buyers greater options on mounts. We also suspect with a little tinkering with the bedding, we can make it shoot a heck of a lot better.

The Savage safety featured a short throw between "safe" and "fire," and was easy to operate with the shooting hand.
