Re: Savage B.Mag 17 Winchester Super Mag Teardown
This is very interesting. It seems there are B.MAGs that improve with bedding or another kinda' equivalent method of anchoring the barrel to the stock, and B.MAGs that improve with free-floating the barrel. Which is better? Then there is the ammo...is the 20gn or the 25gn more accurate? Savage told me that when they tested my rifle they used the 25gn. When I asked if that was more accurate, I was told "yes"?
I expect to receive my B.MAG back from Savage in a week or two so I'll test it as it is returned. But I only have 20gn ammo. That will, of course, not answer either of the questions.
I visited numerous gun stores in Oregon and Northern California this last week in search of 25gn ammo, with no success. In California, I mostly got a kind of "huh?" look when I asked. Most of the dealers I spoke with had no idea about what a B.MAG was, much less having any ammo.
HntWhtTail, if you'll PM me, perhaps we can work out a deal where I can purchase some of your 25gn ammo so I can at least compare the 20gn to the 25gn.
