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.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
