But as a note all brands of ammo I've tried shoot well in my savage (except winchester, I've not used it yet) the only one my gun hates is the 17 grain TNT by CCI.
I'm sorry to say you'll need to check a few to find the best match to you rifle, alot of people report bad accuracy with the 20 grain, but I'm lucky my gun puts up it's best groups with them.
Another note, I've shot certain lots of some of my favorite ammo that just plain stunk, find the lot that shoots well and buy it in bulk .
The HMR is a real winner in hunting form, a little boring target shooting with it cause it's so darn accurate, I guess there are worse problems to have
You'll find that the HMR will shoot right in the 1 inch consistently at 100 yards in almost any situation once you find the magic lot or lots. Alot of the best off the shelf centerfire ammo on the market is hard pressed to make those claims especially shooting them out of a $300 dollar rifle.
Inside 50 yards it'll stack bullets all day. Let me know if you have any problems with that rifle mine was finicky at first til I tweaked it a little.

right from the factory setting. I'm not to keen on dry firing, but I did it a couple of time, and the trigger pull
felt light and good.

i did not like the 17 grain tnt's from CCI.
My two rifles like the CCI 17 gr. TNT better than anything that I have found. Just shows you that you cannot know what your rifle is going to like until you try it.
