Hey all, in the market for a prairie dog rifle...checked out a couple on the savage website but wanting to get some input from others. I have an old .22lr savage that my brother bought me when i was like ten, but i think i pretty much melted the barrel on that poor thing. The ones i found from savage are also .22lr, similar to what i already have but are bolt action, with the accutrigger and a heavy barrel. Debating between the .22lr or the 17, leaning towards the .22lr because the bullets are dirt cheap compared to others also because some of the areas we hunt have houses nearby. Any other options or companies i could look at? Thanks
