Re: .17 hmr Savage I saw yesterday...
I used a .22-250 Remington for varmint hunting, very accurate for P-dogs. Having said that, the .17 is intriguing, and the price is very good for the amount of weapon you get. Over-all operating costs, I would go with the .17. The .222 is kinda expensive, and the Savage is a good rifle. You also get better bragging rights with the .17 with you buddy.
