I was hoping to see a purdy wooden stock. Will also be looking to see more definative accuracy results as reports filter in. Thanks for the write up Eric.

Awesome. I'm not ordering one yet, though all signs point to yes at some point

If you watch the video, you can see how cold it was that day!! I shot the 1885 Low-Wall and it makes for a nice little single-shot.

That low wall is sweet. I'd be wanting a repeater myself. The price on the Savage is very reasonable!!

Well this looks very well for the 5mm but... they said they had to beef up the case to withstand the pressure. if someone could beef up the 5mm case. problem solved and we could easily re-barrel in the b-mag

If you watch more of the videos after Ziesels video you can see what may be of concern to me. The bolt on the B-mag was very tight. Did you notice this Eric?

It was a bit tight, but I was not wearing any gloves, so that made it easy Btw, It was damn cold! I should have one of the first ones when they are released, so I'll do a complete write-up and will put it through multiple real-life tests (as well as kill a bunch of animals with it)!!
