Ever since I read about the new .17 WSM caliber over a year ago, I had basically decided I would get a gun in that caliber eventually. All of last year, the B-Mag always seemed to be in stock, but I didn't want to buy the gun until I could also buy ammo. Late last year, I finally was able to buy a couple of boxes of ammo across a couple trips to some sporting goods stores. Finally, after New Years, I added another gun to my gun cabinet.
I got the Savage B-Mag with the heavy fluted barrel and the 4-12X40 BDC Bushnell scope combo from Cabelas. I have only taken it out once, but I enjoyed it. It only took me a little while to get it sighted in. The shooting experience is nearly identical to shooting the .17 HMR, with slightly more recoil and a little louder. I have never used a BDC scope before, so I will give that a try to see if I like it. Still need to get more ammo, and want to get a couple spare magazines, but mostly just waiting the for next chance to take it out again.
Anybody else shot the .17 WSM? Get any new toys in the last month or so?
