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.
