I am in the market for a new rimfire rifle and have been thinking about getting a 17 HMR for plinking along with shooting woodchucks and have a few questions:

1) What do you think of the 17 HMR cartridge in general and also for shooting ground hogs out to 150 yards or so?

2) If you were going to buy one, would you get a CZ 452 American or Savage 93R17 Classic? Which IYHO is more accurate, better built and will have a higher re-sale value?

Thanks,

Sam

Well, as it so happens, I own both.  The Savage is more accurate across the board with all ammo brands.  Now, I am not talking by huge margins.  The Savage will shoot into a quarter all day long at 100 yards, while the CZ is just outside of that, by a small margin.  Now the CZ has the Savage in looks.  In reality, my experience is that the difference is not large enough at the distances that the caliber is effective to make the CZ inferior to the Savage for varmint hunting.  However, if you want to save money and choose an American product that is more accurate, go with the Savage.

Sam, check out Rimfire Central and see what those dudes have to say.
According to some there, the Marlin Model 917?? rifles are worthy of your consideration.

  I bought a youth model 917 for my grandson last yr. Put a red dot sight on it for him and he literally drives tacks(the ones holding the target)with it.    Thunbs Up

I have a Marlin 917VS, a Ruger K77/17 VMBBZ, a CZ 452 Varminter Mach2. The quality in the CZ is exceptional. The savage being on the lower end is still a respectable gun. How much do you want to spend? As long as you put GOOD GLASS on either I think you will be happy.....

Marlin is a good choice also.
