Took me awhile to respond to this question. Not sure what ammo he tried in his rifle, but he is a skilled marksman and one of the most gun-savvy guys I know. So, if he said it wouldn't shoot, I...

Never thought about using a 17Mach2 as a deer call, but, hey, I'll try it. I too find the 17Mach2 to be a 1st rate squirrel getter. I've boasted my longest squirrel kill at 125 yds with mine. And...

I'm assuming this is a Savage. If a project rifle is what you want, then I say go for it. Depending on what you want, it could no longer be a bargain. I will say that Savage makes a pretty darn...

Deal on 17Mach2 ammo

Reed's has a sale on Mach2 ammo. Hornady V-Max is usually $8.99 at Reeds and is on sale for $6.19. I like Reeds; they are easy to deal with and shipping is quick.
