I have also not jumped in on the 17 bandwagon...figured I have a real nice 22mag that does everything I need it to do. Not too sure if I will look into any of them including the 17 remington. I just wonder with how fast things are moving if we still run into problems like we did with the real fast moving cartridges of the past.....I just have too many questions like what does it do so much better than something I already have?

My gunsmith told me that they are very accurate, is that correct ?
Another thing about the gun is that it was made about a 1/2 hour away from where I live. Back before NY chased all the manufacturing and gun owners away.

I think they are quite accurate. Most of the 1919s will be marked "1919 NRA"-I guess they were intended for use with NRA competition shooting. Savage made them for many years, with details changing over the years-sights are something to watch out for-I had a 1919 before the one in the photo, and someone had done a very good job of grafting a later Lyman sight on the year, even inletting the stock. It all looked like it was factory-done, which suckered me into buying it. I had done no research, so I didn't know what I was looking at. It was indeed very accurate, and was fun to shoot, but these days, I try to buy only the most original, correct rifles I can. I managed to sell that one, and later found this early, mint 1919. As with most of these old .22 rifles, having the correct, original sights is important-sights for these rifles are rare and expensive, so don't buy a rifle without them. The correct magazine is important,too-they are on ebay, but sometimes for more than you paid for the rifle.

Yea, I've got a 22 mag too, but just had to try the .17. I will probably sell the one I like the least, which I'm guessing is going to be the 22 mag, because I like the thumbhole stock better. Of course I could always get a thumbhole stock 22 mag. Damn, guess I have to buy another gun.

Shot my .17 HMR for the first time this morning. Results of a five round group. Not too bad, except for that damn flyer.

What range? My HM2 shoots like that at 50. I bought it for squirrels. I didn't think I needed any more speed for that.

Yea 50....50ft I didn't have the best rest and it certainly wasn't in a lead sled. I resighted it in for 100 yards and this was the result. Three round group, with one dead center and flyer out in the 9 zone. .75 MOA and I shot one .5 MOA, so I'll take it. Still way better than I can shoot offhand.

Here's my fifty yard target. If I remember correctly, that's seven shots. Without the flyer, it measured .29 inches. With it, it was right at one half inch.

First draft, 10/22

Sweet 22 scope
Weaver see-thru rings
Shadyrascals tri-mags with clear mags



The hi-cap mag restriction sucks. Each of these tri-mags holds 30 rounds and costs over 100 bucks total. I know this isn't the place, but fuck, all this accomplishes is more $$ out of my pocket.

Found a line on some .22LR ammo today, at the local auto shop (that sidelines in tacticool stuff)
CCI Blazer bulk, 525 round boxes, $45/box!

Said he's selling it for what he paid for it, and I believe it.

Sure glad I'm stocked up on it from last year!

Being 2nd in line at Academy this morning got me a 1400 round bucket 'o' bullets. They had 4 buckets. Guy #5 missed out. Crazy it is.

Just bought a box of 500 Winchester Wildcat's for $19.99. In Canada. What's with the price of .22 LR in the USA these days? You boys expecting an invasion?

I only buy the cheaper bulk stuff as my Neos will shoot anything I put in it. Of the stuff I have bought recently, the 1400 Remington was $65, the Federal 325 rounds was $14, and random boxes of 50 for $2.19-2.69

I have no idea why the .22 is the hardest to find.

Yes, we are being invaded SCLF (Small Critter Liberation Front).
Homeland Security has sent out a bird feeder warning so we are all stocking up.

(Sorry for all the buzzwords NSA. Nothing to see here )

It's been a while since I posted a rifle here-this is another exhibit in my museum of Walnut and Blued Steel-a Remington Model 37. The epitome of target rifles for many,many years,starting in 1937, it can still hold its own in high-level competition even now.




This one came with a Lyman Super Targetspot scope

Wow. That's nice indeed! I love the fitted case for the scope. Original price on that scope must have been quite high.
