I have a Marlin 17VS that I bought a piece of claro walnut and had a stock made. The gun shot so well I wanted to fix it to look as good as it shoots. I think it does.

Have you noticed that folks don't like to post their less than sterling results?

As it happens, I'm not one of 'em.
I keep track of all my results, either hard copy or digital.


What can you expect, when the targets aren't cherry picked?
Let's see what's in the storage files....









Point of aim is center of bullseye for every shot.
Inspect those shots and groups and understand,
CCI does not make the most consistent rimfire ammo, Winchester ditto.

Beautiful gun you have there!

I have a 17VS with a similar shaped stock, although it's desert camo laminate. It sometimes shoots groups like that and makes me proud. I wish it had an action more like my 1717, but there's no arguing with how well it'll shoot. I've recrowned it, bedded it, changed the bolt handle and added an RB trigger. I probably have too much invested in it, but it is a joy to shoot.

Thanks guys. That gun shoots very well. That is the best it has done at 100yds. 50yds it will easily shoot quite a few in the .2's.for 5 shots.

I myself like to see the best groups. That shows you what gun is capable of to me. Anyone can show mediocre groups. We all can shoot those. Just my view on accuracy. I ain't interested in 1/2" groups at 50yds. Not hard to easily top those and most of my guns will seldom shoot those big of groups.

The poster said he wanted to see some groups at 50yds. These are some I have kept. I will again say typical groups are in the .2's and a few low .3's. I have 2 of these Marlin 17HMR. Both can do this.

Here's some "cherry picked" targets, the task was 30 shots in 20 mins. at 100 yards with the .17hmr, I shot my Anschutz 1717D with a Leupold 6-18x LRV reticle, it took me 22 minutes as the wind wasn't co-operating.



The center is 1/2" and the heavier ring is 1", you have to pick your cherries pretty quickly sometimes.

I'm impressed...

I am impressed with those groups. I don't believe I have ever done that with my .17 HMR and certainly not with any .22 rimfire.

Thanks Gerald. More data for me to play with.



30 shots, 100 yards, vertical is just under an inch.
Measuring off the overlay, 0.85 inch center to center.
Ballistic calculator shows ES to produce that spread would be in excess of 200 fps.

The Annie 1717 is no slouch.
Targets posted in the monthly 100 yard challenge using the 1717 have been difficult to better.
Accuracy is expensive.
