re: 17 bmag

I bought a new B mag and cleaned it up took it to the bench and did a few five shot groups and the best it would do was 7" a buddy bought his and it will do a 12" five shot and that's FREE RECOIL !!!!!! What the hell!!!!!

Welcome to the club.......you can call savage and send it back, or do some research on the web to see what others have done to try and improve accuracy.
My first Bmag was sent back for similar performance issues. The replacement rifle I received was only marginally better.
Also, the ammo is very inconsistent, I have seen as much as 1.2 grain difference between rounds in 1 box.
Good Luck.

I have ordered 2 of Savage ' newly released B Mag with a factory Stainless Steel Bull Barrel. The item number is 96915 I was lucky enough to find 2 of these at a gun dealer Located In Texas with good ties to Savage. I am keeping one and selling the other for what I paid for it which is $500. The price is not including the shipping and ffl costs I had to spend on the rifle. I accidentally bought 2 so I am selling the one at a very good deal. This new b mag is promised to be a much better improve t to the original b mag released last year. I will be receiving the rifle from my ffl dealer in roughly 2 weeks. First one who can give me a $100 deposit will take this rifle home once I get the remainder ($400) when the rifle comes in.
