Bushnell Banner 4 x 16 x 40mm Scope
My brother mounted a new Bushnell scope with weaver medium profile rings on my Savage A17 yesterday. We decided to use a Bushnell 4 x 16 with lighted reticle. It will light up red or green and will be great for early morning groundhogs.
Unfortunately I do not have a bore sighter in .17 caliber. But I should be able to get the rifle zeroed in without too much difficulty. My plan is to sight the rifle in .50'' low at 25 yards, then move to 50 yards and 100 yards.
My friend Chuck recently bought the same rifle. He is very impressed with the accuracy, Chuck is easily shooting one inch groups. The Savage A17 is definitely a tack driver and I cannot wait to try it out.
