I have a savage model 93 heavy barrel with a 20.75 inch barrel. I'm getting 3/4-1" groups at 100yds.Is this bad.I'm using CCI TNT hollow points.These give the best accuracy of all and safety with out bouncing off the rocks.

Austin i would say that 3/4 to 1 inch groups at 100yds is very good accuracy from an off the shelf 22mag. I have had several 22magnums (all Marlins)and none off them would shoot 1 inch at 100 yds.

I haven't tried any of the new ammunition with the polymer tips though.

I have a Savage in 17 HMR and it is superbly accurate. It has relegated all other rimfires to the gunsafe.

Good shooting.

I have a Ruger 7722 in .22 Mag and was told by the folks at Ruger that their accuracy benchmark for this rifle is ~1" groups at 50 yards. I would consider 1" at 100 yards pretty good.

thanks guys.Iv used remingtons with the poly tip but my gun hates them,2.5" of hate.The thing is tho my gun loves the cheap crap and only 1 spendy kind.but where i hunt some chucks is built up.this is the reason for the 22mag,but i cant take a chance on a stray round zinging off.the TNT's are explosive and safe.

That is great accuracy for a 22 mag, and shows what a super accurate rifle the Savage 93 is.

The only way you are going to get better accuracy is to switch to the .17 HMR That is because it is inherently a more accurate cartridge.

One day 20 months ago, I was sighting in my Savage 93 in .17 HMR in at 100 yards. I had it sighted in to hit 1 1/2 inch high, but decided to change it to hit dead on at 100. Sunny day, with totally calm air. No wind at all.

First shot hit exactly high, where it had been before. I adjusted my Sightron down, and the next shot hit dead center on the target!

But there was a pesky tiny fly buzzing around my target, and landing on it. It was starting to annoy me greatly. So I decided to go FLY HUNTING! Well, guess what? On my first attempt, the fly is no where to be seen. And where he had been, is a tiny .17 caliber hole.

When I later check the target, I see fly guts splattered all around the hole. And a gooey piece of liquified fly, which landed a few inches up on the target.

Here is a photo of the target for you to see:



Anyway, get another 93 in .17 HMR You will not regret it!

3/4"-1" is simply fantastic for any 22 Mag at 100 yards. I have a Mauser 210 in 22mag and have had numerous Rugers and the Mauser shoots the best by far which is 3/4"-1" on the best of days due to wind. I did have a Ruger all weather stainles that shot 1" at 100 yards.

Whether or not you end up with a 17 HMR, the 22 mag is much better than the 17 HMR on foxes. I have killed several yotes with the 22 Mag, but it is not a good coyote round, many have ran off.

I shot two yotes with the 17 HMR and they both ran off and the furtherest yote was 35 yards.

Lance, back home we'd take some burger grease and smear it on a 3x5 card under our targets. It works great for calling up what might be the ultimate in varmint hunting. Or at least the smallest. I've got some video of it around here somewhere. I'll try and scare it up. -Rod-
