Ive got a savage .17 and i love it. I shoot either remington premier magnum rimfire or hornady. I found that when i shot cci or any sort of hollow points, they didnt fly true and keep to the same pattern every time. Personally i would recommend to stay away from any kind of hollow points, but if you have good luck with sighting them in then go for it.
I sighted mine in last year with the hornady's at 75yds and they worked pretty good. I recently went to cabelas and bought the remington's and they work just as well. I just sighted it back in at 125yds, and im hitting a nickel size spot with five shots. So good luck
