Default Savage B-Mag .17 WSM

Just put 100 Winchester Varmint HE 25 grain rounds (2600 fps) thru my new B-Mag. Before shooting I adjusted the Accu trigger to 2.5 lbs. Just a little creep at take-up; crisp 2.5 lbs after that. Sighted in at 100 yards. Average group size of 1 inch or less. 2 malfunctions - one failure to eject and one light dimple from the firing pin. Rotary magazine loads easily and functioned without a hitch.
Good shooting little rifle!
I wasn't impressed when I handled the gun at the shot show. I am now...
Waiting to get my hands on some of the 3000 fps HV ammo.

Putting it in a NICE (wood) stock would probably help it's case.....

Default 17 B mag Savage

I took it out the box run a patch through and put a scope on went out to sight it in , I was going to fire a round at 25 yds the clean it and sight the scope to the hole . The Rifle didn't exstract the empty .I tried 7 more same thing I had to take each one out by hand . but it did shoot a very good group at 25 yds. One shell did not chamber. bolt closed hard . I'm sure they will take care everything on this problem it could be made a little better. target
