Hello gentleman, I'm totally new to shooting and was hoping I could find the answers here to a few of the numerous questions I have. I recently bought a bolt action Savage Mark II that shoots 17 Mach 2 ammo out of a 5 round mag. Like any newbie, I just figured I could toss any old scope on there and shoot away, but I quickly realized (upon surfing the web) that wasn't the case. I'm interested in is target shooting at a max of about 100 to 125 yards and closer. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for a scope, red dot or conventional,  in the price range of $100 to $150.  I found a "Sweet 17" scope made for .17 but it's for the 17 HMR and I wasn't sure if it was compatible with my .17 ammo. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Also, does anyone know where I can find spare or higher capacity mags for the Savage Mark II that shoots 17Mach 2? Once again, any help would be appreciated.

The Sweet 17 only works on the 17 HMR as far as the bullet drop feature goes.  I would not recommend a red dot sight for those distances.  Consider the Simmons Pro-Air line they are very bright and clear scopes with adjustable objectives and target style adjustments.


Try for extra mags.
