From Shooting Times (UK):
I have always been a sucker for a good thumbhole stock and enjoy using the smaller calibre rifles for their ease of shooting, light recoil and level of performance that is more than sufficient for an evening’s rabbit foray.
The .17 HMR fills many requirements in this area and the new offering from stalwart Savage Arms ticks all the boxes regarding looks and performance. The Savage name has always stood for good quality at a fair price, but some models had that utilitarian look which wasn’t as appealling.
Not so with the new 93R17 model – you can see the pedigree yet appreciate the refinements, giving the shooter the complete package.
