      They are ideal for very long range shooting and for marskmen as well

      A bolt action M-107 .50 cal can take down helicopters, some bolt actions are like cannons

    You dont need that, get a glock + AR, get some good optics and aftermarket parts and train. Any other gun is an unnecessary waste of time and space

    Why not 22LR?

      because 17 hmr is better.

        How is it better? It still has the defects of rimfire, no? The chance of having a misfire or cycling problem is just as high. Plus it's way more expensive. What am I missing?

          Its 2 different calibers for doing 2 different things. 22lr is better for small game hunting. 17hmr is better for farther shots, and is faster, much much flatter shooting. Damages more meat on small game unless its a body shot. Hell ive killed deer with my 17, dont recommend it though.

          Any man worth his salt will have both.

            Are there 17hmr in semi auto? What are some of the most reliable bolt actions? Savage is pretty shit quality, at least in 22lr. Seen lots of extractor problems. Looking for something that cycles reliably.

    Out of those two I'd take the tikka. Also check out the cz 457 rifles. They have a bunch of different configurations.

      I'd probably get a 22LR because it's cheaper but if you are hard set on a 17HMR then get a CZ457 or a Savage 93R17. Just be mindful about the distance you're shooting at, a close shot with a 17HMR might ruin the game you're shooting.

        I have a friend that owns one in 17HMR and my dad owns one in 22LR. While I've only seen my friends one out in the field a couple of times my dad's CZ is a great gun, he's owned it for about 4-5 years and hasn't had a single problem with it. CZ isn't my first choice either but the 457 just really shines in its role at the price it's at, you shouldn't be dropping stupid amounts of money on a bunny buster, people used to get hundreds of rabbits with old single shots, I don't see what's wrong with a CZ457. Also don't ask for recommendations and turn your nose up at everything

        22LR is just the master of rimfire, it's cheap and fun, other rimfires (17hmr) are just too expensive and miss the point IMO.

    I cant speak on their rimfires, but Tikka centerfires are incredible.

    But for the same money id seriously consider a 457 American. I have one in 17hmr and it will shoot a a half dime sized 5 shot group at 100yards.

    I also have a 457 American in 22lr and a 457 Varmint in 22lr and they both shoot insanely good as well. Very well built rifles

    So you mean you're looking for a .22LR rifle.

      I can fathom buing tons of shit over a .22
      But not another rimfire, that can't do anything .22 can't, that costs 9x what .22 does.

    I shot a friends ruger in 17hmr, really enjoyed it, super accurate and good trigger. It’s a good rifle and caliber combo from my experience

    17 HMR is a good pest control cartridge.
    Can drop a coyote within 200 yards.
    Good for dispatching racoons more humanely than a 22lr.
    I'd feel sorry for any squirrel or cottontail shot with it though. Jackrabbits should be big enough though.
    Can still use 22 suppressors.
    I own both a 17 HMR and a 17 HMR Mach 2 and they both hold up at 100 yards with a cross wind.

    Imagine wanting a gun for small game and cheap shooting, and getting a rimfire that's shit, and costs the same as brass case 5.56

    not sure if they come in 17 hmr but I'm down between a winchester xpr or a mauser m18 for my cheapo bolt action, I'd go for a tikka but they are severely overpriced here
