Default Savage Walking Varmit Rifle. 223

Hi everyone. I am new to the forums and had a question. I just ordered a Savage model 25 walking varmit rifle in. 223. My question is are there any savage/after market magazines larger than the 4 round mag it comes with? I appreciate your input.

personally i haven't seen any aftermarket magazines for the M25's any larger than OEM yet. not to say there aren't any available, just not a real common model for Savage. you might try looking on SavageShooters forum as those guys are nothing but Savage rifles and if anyone knew what's out there, they would know.

Savage added a new caliber to the model 25 rifles, the 17 Hornet. a 22 Hornet necked down to a 17 caliber. Hornady is the only one currently making ammo for it and the Savage M25 is the only one so far chambered in it. i have been giving some thought into getting one. i have been wanting a centerfire 17 caliber rifle just for the fun of owning and shooting one.

I did not realize that, sounds fun though. I currently have a savage mk ii btv 22lr and i absolutely love it. I put a nikon pro staff on it and it is extremely accurate. That was my first rifle and was so impressed i figured another savage would be the way to go. I wanted to step up in caliber and being somewhat new to rifles i didnt want to jump right up to a .308 so it seemed that a .223 was the next logical step. The odds of going somewhere i can shoot more than 300-500 is pretty slim so i figured is was a more economical choice than a .308.

i think you made a wise and logical choice in rifle and caliber. as i do a lot of reloading, that would be why my choice in getting the 17 Hornet. i also have a M93r17 Savage in 17HMR, semi custom rifle with a Boyd's laminate stock, rifle Basix trigger sear, BSA Sweet 17 scope in 6-18x40. very sweet shooting rifle.

Thats a very nice looking rifle my friend. i appreciate the support on the choice i made, i was really hesitant and did quite a bit of research in it. Being that you mentioned reloading, does it actually save quite a bit of money for the. 223? I really dont know too much about reloading hehe.

thank you for the compliment on the rifle. the 223 is one of the cheaper centerfire calibers to buy factory ammo for, but beings you are going with a bolt action, i am guessing you are more concerned with accuracy? now if you want to get into reloading, you can save money over the premium brands of 223 ammo. you also get to have ammo that's tailored to your rifle. you can also fine tune the ammo to the rifle for even better accuracy. personally i don't really reload for saving money, but it does, i reload for increased accuracy.

Yeah i went with bolt action on both my rifles so far because of accuracy. Also it seemed logical to slow down and not blow through near as much ammo with a bolt action vs a semi. I dont know if tackling reloading at this time would be wise on my part considering how green i am
