Re: Savage B.Mag 17 Winchester Super Mag Teardown
I purchased the B.MAG in mid-September and mounted a Leupold Vari-X III on it. Firing the 20gn round from a Lead Sled rest, I could not shoot groups smaller than 2"-3" at 100 yards. I have returned the rifle to Savage for service.
After I returned the rifle to Savage, my FFL called me to say that someone had come into his shop, saw the 17WSM cartridge I'd left there as a show-and-tell and told the FFL that he'd returned his to Savage because he couldn't get it to group, either. The FFL called another shop and they told him that they'd had three customers return their B.MAG to Savage for the same reason.
It would seem that Savage has a bit of a problem. I hope it is fixable.
