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.

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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
