I bought a Marlin 17VS for varmints. I experienced very-very good accuracy (scoped) for my 100 yard sight-in distance. On squirrels it worked fine. But, on fox and chunkie groundhogs, not that great on body shots. Oh, they died, but not after rolling and kicking a bit. On windy days, it stayed in the gun locker. I stepped up to a .243 when shooting into a crosswind. I traded it away. Not too disappointed either.
