Grabbed one at work (Sportsman's Warehouse) and I am in love!

I mounted a Bushnell A17 rimfire scope with AO and some A17 CCI ammo along with some Hornady 17 V max ammo.

The first thing I was amazed with was velocity. Hornady v max 17 gr was 2650 fps and the CCI A17 was 2725 fps!!!
Then there was the well under Sub-moa accuracy at 100 yards with the A-17 CCI bordering 1/2" at 100. Trigger was adjusted to under 3 LBS with the supplied tool.

Savage as usual did it right.
