7 posts in this topic

What one is more accurate and what one has the most power thinking about buying one of the two and not sure what brand or what one to but. I shoot left hand so I would have to get a brand that sells a left hand bolt which cal and brand would be the best?

What do you plan to use it for? Check the balistics and that should tell you which is better for your particular needs. I had both but got rid of the 22. I have the Ruger 77 and love it. It is a bit more "deluxe" than some of the other offerings. I like the rotary magazine similar to the 10/22 as it lays flush into the gun. That model should be available in lefty.

I would go with the 17. Then it barks the coyote sits. No exit wound, 100% energy transfer and a quick death.

Dido on the 17. I have a Savage with the

Acu-trigger and love it. The 20 grain load

explodes your target very nicely, thankyou

How far can you shoot with yours? Also how much does a person pay for one of these? and did yours come with the scope or did you buy it seprate?

One other thing does any one know if you can get the lef handed one in senthetic their site only shows it in wood?

Thanks

I spent 330 for my savage with a 3-9 scope from Dick's. No idea if it comes in a lefty but I bet it does. I haven't taken a shot outside of 100 yards yet, but with little pills like that, the wind can really become a major factor. I shoot the 20 grain hornady's as well, most accurate out of my savage with the bull barrel.

i have another vote for the .17. i have a Marlin 917 varmint with the thumbhole stock ($450) and a leupold 4.5-12 VXIII that i use for gophers and prarie dogs, out to approximatly 250meters on a "dead" day, picks was right on the money that the wind does have a considerable affect on the rounds. it will drive tacks at 100 though. they do have left hand models available but they are harder to find in gunshops, but most wouldn't have a problem ordering one for you.

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
