    Outstanding performance from a rimfire. I like mine a lot. Anybody else?

    I bought my dad a Volquartsen 17hmr autoloader for Christmas a few years ago. The thing has turned in more than a handful of five shot groups under 1/2" at 100 yards.

    Bought the Bmag when it first came out what a piece of cr#%. Was lucky to group 3" at 50 yards often much worse.

    Yeah, the first savages looked like steaming heaps. I couldn't bring myself to own an inaccurate AND ugly gun. I went the ruger route and have been very pleased except for it being heavy. I'm waiting for someone to bring out a quality lightweight sporter.
