just dropped a couple bills on a new Savage BBL .17 HMR bolt gun. What scope should I top it with. I like having a 4-12x on my 10/22's for small targets; and with the extended reach of the HMR, it might really be nice. Surely some of you guys have put one of these together?


what say you?


cheers, Benji

eta: $100 price point would be great. My dad owes me $125, so I guess I could go that high if it'd get me something worth the extra.

My Savage 93 .17HMR came with a 4x el-cheap-o Simmons scope. It has worked quite well.

maybe look at what falcon has to offer, im really enjoying my 4x14ffp mil i got from them. i think there may be a model below that will suit your gun better and at a lower$

I thought all the falcons were quite a bit more $$$ than I'm thinkin?

One thing that might be nice is I have a kind of cheapy Bushnell on one of my 10/22's that has mildots from the center down to help with holdovers. I don't mind adjusting the turrets for different ranges, but I din't really know of any lower end scopes that have "target" turrets, or "tactical", or whatever you call them...

A guy I work with has one of these on his Savage and he likes it a lot, kinda spendy though.

Simmons Whitetail Classic 6.5-20. As good as you'll find for $100.
