REVIEW BY: Michael Tuesday, May 26, 2015
I bought this 6x18x40 and put it on my new Savage A-17 . It was bore sighted at the gun dealer and I headed to the range. I fired two rounds at 25 yards through the same hole. I made the adjustments 1/16" per click and it was right on. I moved out to 100 yards and fired two rounds and the holes were touching. I made the minor adjustments 1/4" per click and fired 3 rounds into a 1" bullseye. I set the torrent at 100 yards and locked it down. I moved to 200 yards and failed it in and adjusted parallax . I shot 3 rounds into a 3" bullseye. I am very impressed with this scope. I am going to mount one on my Henry 17hmr.

This scope is great i have it mounted on my Savage 93-17GV and its very accurate, good clear optics but the eye relief isn't the best in my opinion, Great scope for the money because 17's don't kick eye relief isn't really a problem and more just annoying

So I traded for a .17 hmr and it came with this scope, wasn't sighted in... Took me a minute to get it figured out without he manual but this scope is amazing. I am a big game hunter and have been guiding hunts and spotting deer and elk at about a 1000 yards and it's like my little spotting scope I truly love this scope and I am always recommending it to others it is so damn accurate I can shoot squirrels at 20 yards and crank it up to 275-300 yards and drop me every time

I just bought this scope and put it on my Savage 93-17 BTV. Unbeleivably after sighting it in with only two shots at 100 yards, my next five shots went through the first hole, unbeleivable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
REVIEW BY: TB Sunday, March 10, 2013
not joking....killed a coyote at 340yds. cranked the scope down to 300 yds and put the cross hairs 6 inches above his ear. he never heard the gun go off. buying 2 more....1 for me and 1 for my dad. great buy
REVIEW BY: HFDPilot Sunday, January 20, 2013
About a year ago I mounted the older version of the Sweet 17 6-18 on my Savage 93R17. I was impressed at the performace at the range at ranges from 25-100 yds. This weekend I finally had the chance to shoot at ranges from 40-285. The scope is spot on. I bounced around at various ranges and it preformed flawlessly. My order is going in tonight for a Sweet 22. Thansk for a great little scope.

Love it, I recommended this beauty to all my mates, Haven't missed once with this babe.
REVIEW BY: Crackshot Bynum Thursday, June 14, 2012
This scope is unreal, get it! I hit a dime at 300 yds! Took the head off of a squirrel at over 200yds, you won't regret buying this scope. it's BSA all the way for me!!!!!!!!!!
REVIEW BY: don friday, june 2012 Friday, June 08, 2012
i have a remington model 547 in .17hmr and mounted a s 3x9x40. works well beyond expectations.results are so good it is borring at ranges less than 150 yds.hits at a 5x8 in steel target at 300 yds is no problem. in spite of negative input from various individuals scope is great. no problems.
REVIEW BY: Cal Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Just bought a sweet 17 scope for my savage 9317 and was amazed at the accuracy and ease of sighting in only 3 shots and was in the 10 ring at 50 yards. At 100 yards it was spot on less than 1 inch groups with a 20 mph tail wind. Infact out of five shots two groups were touching on both sides of the center dot and the other was slightly high inbetween. I can't say enough about this outstanding scope. I am going to buy two more for my 22 and 223/556. Best scope I have ever owned.
REVIEW BY: Bill Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Thanks BSA for the awesome scope, the price was really reasonable, and the scope well beyond satisfies my needs as a recreational plinker, installed this scope before ever firing my Savage 93h17, it sighted nicely, and shoots nice tight groups the size of a quarter at 100yds... I'll be looking to BSA to outfit my 22 rimfire rifles as well.. Well done.
REVIEW BY: Wibb Tuesday, April 10, 2012
This scope is worth the $$$. I shot my 917V at 100, 200, and 300 yards and this scope is spot on at every distance. I was shocked when it hit within 6" of zero at 300 yards. I definitely recommend this scope for your favorite 17 HMR
REVIEW BY: kevin Monday, January 09, 2012
put it on my savage model 93r17 17hmr very good scope clear view
REVIEW BY: Tuesday, December 20, 2011
I bought this scope 6-18 about a year ago. And love it! It is on a browning t-bolt in 17hmr. I took the scope prairie dog shooting and it worked great out to 300 yards which exceeded the bullets effective range. The turret adjustments for elevation help to get you close, but are not dead on due to variables. Have had some issues with focusing at ranges under 25 yrds. Would probably get the 3-12 power scope in hindsight the 17 just does not have the range for 18x.
REVIEW BY: Tome Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Nice scope. Mine sits on a Browning 17-HMR that I picked up about a year ago. I wish someone would make a sunshade for it as the glare can get bad now and then. I use it for squirrel hunting. I don't need to shoot out to 100+ yards but inside 50-75 yards is fine for me.
REVIEW BY: Chris Monday, August 01, 2011
This scope works EXACTLY how it was ment to i love it. put it on my Savage 93r17f and it worked great best money ive ever spent on a scope!
REVIEW BY: Morris Sunday, July 03, 2011
bought this scope for my model 93 flawlessly.not only a great scope but is one of my favorite combo's. all within a blue collar guys budget.
REVIEW BY: Jake Mesa,OR Monday, June 13, 2011
just thought id drop a line about how great this scope is. i have had this scope on my model 93R17 btvs for about 3 months now. i have got to use this scope at many different yardages. the ellivation turret works ammazing. the side parallax is much improved over older modles with parallax on front of scope. optics are very clear. my best shot with this scope was a rock chuck at 295 yds. target shooting i group under an inch moa at 100 yds. this is a must have for any 17 owner. i hope this helps anyone looking to buy a great scope for great price
REVIEW BY: gunutz Sunday, May 22, 2011
I shot my buddies 17 hmr for the first time and he has this scope and i was getting quarter sized groups at a hundred yards, needless to say i was very impressed. Way to go BSA!!!
REVIEW BY: Donald Montgomery, AL Tuesday, December 21, 2010
Put one on my Savage .17 HMR. Got uncommonly tight groups repeatedly. Easy to boresight and use. Keep up the good work and the price goes well with the cost of the rifle. Thanks.
REVIEW BY: Tom,Stockton CA Thursday, August 12, 2010
I first purchased your Sweet 17 3-12 and mounted it on my Savage Model 93R17 BTVS I found it to be crisp and very accurate and easy to set up. I read about your 6-18 model and I had to have it. This power scope is the pefect fit for shooting I do with the HMR.17! I can tell you I have very high end scopes that cost five times a much as yours they are no better than your product. Thanks for making it so affordable to outfit my favorite Rim fire!
REVIEW BY: Zach Fabian Wednesday, March 24, 2010
Holy crap. Thats what I have to say about the 618x40 sp. I just put it on my savage 93 heavy barrel and even with a 15mph swirling wind i was getting quarter sized groups of five at 100 yards. Couldnt wait to shoot it on a calm day. Cant wait to c what it does on an ideal day! This is by far the best optic ive ever had. Price has nothing to do with it. If it cost twice what it did i would still buy it knowing what its capable of. NICE JOB BSA! Ordering another for my savage 93 standard barrel.
REVIEW BY: Addison McNeill Tuesday, December 29, 2009
i currently own the older version of this scope the 6x18x40 ao but yesterday i sighted in my girlfriends fathers marlin 917 with the S17-618x40sp and was amazed at the modifications on the new scope compared to my old one the view is much more clear and the side parallax is much more user friendly. at 100yds i was grouping 6 bullets inside if a dime sized target. needless to say i immediately removed my scope and ordered the modified version and cant wait to get it.
REVIEW BY: Michael Owens Monday, November 02, 2009
I recently bought the BSA Sweet 17 S17-618X40S. I took it out on the range this past weekend and was elated at it's quality and accuracy. I have it attached to a Savage model 93 .17 HMR bolt action rifle with the bull barrel. As I was sighting it in the groups just got tighter and tighter and tighter at 100 yards until I was within a quarter on all groups. I set the trajectory compensator back to 25 and 50 yards and it was equally as accurate. I can't wait to try out the upper end of the compensator all the way out to 300 yards. It is unbelievable. It has separate calculations for the to most popular bullet weights the 17 grain and the 20 grain. I was using Hornady rounds and they perform very well. By the end of 230 rounds I shot that day I was getting practically bored of shooting because of the consistency of the groups. This is one awesome scope for the amount of dollars you put out. Greatly needed in today's economy. Thanks BSA!
REVIEW BY: Albert Friday, February 06, 2009
So many great new features on this scope!! Improved top turret with, 17g & 20g windows for bullet drop compensation. Side focus dial works great! Optics much clearer!!! A Must Buy for your 17HMR!!
