re: Savage 17 WSM - SneauxTiger
Walmart, of all places. About a month ago. I was at a local store and asked if they had any----NOPE! Guy next to me overheard an said he thought he saw some at Walmart. He wasn't familiar with that caliber, that is what caught his attention. I said, "Thanks buddy", and zooooooomed to my nearest Walm...

re: Savage 17 WSM - SneauxTiger
After about 300 rds, love it. Zeroed at 100 yds for the 25 gr round. Excellent group at 300 yds. First 100 rds I was having a problem with bullet impact creep to the right and up as the session continued. I checked the free floating barrel with a slip of paper and found significant resistance. Disas...

Thanx, El Josey and PoonHound. Great info. Relatively thick and tapered barrel. Was wondering about heat buildup. Will keep that in mind. The chamber is ported on both sides right in front of the bolt head....

re: Savage B-MAG .17WSM - SneauxTiger
Will do. This is the first scoped rifle I have owned. I am familiar with the workings of adjusting the scope "cross hairs" having friends who have owned scopes. However, if I want a 100 yd zero, should I start at 100 yds? Scope is bore sighted. Or start at say 50 yds or less, just to be sure I am hi...

re: Savage B-MAG .17WSM - SneauxTiger
I looked at the Ruger .17 HMR a while back. Excellent firearm. Are they producing a rifle chambered for the Winchester Super Magnum (WSM)? I was lead to believe only Savage, in partnership with Winchester, was producing this caliber rifle at this time. ...

MSRP is $349.00. Got mine during Labor Day Sale for a little less,$329.00. Gun shop said they were out of stock, but sales clerk double checked in the back, and bingo, lucky me. Scope was about $185.00 (199.00 msrp) including mounting and bore sighting. Rotary mag, which is mostly synthetic, was sti...

re: Savage B-MAG .17WSM - SneauxTiger
The bolt "cocks" the firing pin on closing, thus the extra effort to lock down the bolt. Some bolts "cock" on opening. Takes some getting used to. Is that what you are referring to? I find the action quite smooth, other than that....

Mossberg 590A1 upgrade - SneauxTiger
Installed GG&G mag follower and Wolf mag spring. Definitely can feel the difference. Rounds "slam" into the receiver. Cycled with no malfunctions. Rapid fire sessions cleared the weapon.

Received a Mossberg 590A1,8+1, with ghost sights for Christmas from my daughters. Sighted in at 35 yds for rifled slugs. Three round group within 2 1/2 inches. Still working on it.

re: Who here has tactical shotguns? - SneauxTiger
Maybe not. If one has a Mossberg with an amberdextrous safety on top, one has to release the pistol grip to funtion the safety. I can funtion my safety without releasing my grip on the weapon. Keeps both hands on the weapon at all times. My preference, I suppose....
