**This Contest is OVER** - July 12, 2014  -  EM

 

I first reviewed the Savage B.MAG and the 17 Winchester Super Magnum Ammunition in July 2013.  It included a video that showed the rifle and ammo in action.  The first video, as well as the two that followed, have resulted in over 185,000 views, equaling over 420 days in actual time spent watching the videos!!

 

Unfortunately, this popularity and the current ammunition situation, has caused a shortage of ammunition for people who have rifles, but no ammo to shoot.  So, If you have NO 17 Winchester Super Magnum ammunition for your rifle, this is your chance to win some here!

 

This is going to be a tough contest, but it will be worthwhile to the winner, as that person will win two boxes of the 17 Winchester Super Magnum ammunition.  One box of the 20 grain and one box of the 25 grain, shipped to your door.

Here are the "rules":

 

1)  You must have a delivery address within the Contiguous 48 States (no Alaska or Hawaii) and be allowed to accept ammunition at your home address.

2)  You must post a photograph of your Savage B.MAG, with a print-out of the image linked here (Click Here), in this thread.

3)  If you do not have a Savage B.MAG, but have another firearm chambered in the 17WSM cartridge, you must contact me via PM and include your telephone number.

4)  If you have ammo, please do not participate in this contest.  If you are caught lying, you will not be able to participate in any other giveaway contest in the future (we have some rifle giveaways coming soon, so you may not want to take the chance).

5)  I am requesting (not requiring) that you post some pictures of your kills with your rifle after receiving the ammunition.

6)  You must be a member in good standing (Current or New).

7)  The contest will end when we have at least 15 seperate entries, or when I deem it is time to end it because it is dragging on.

8)  Winner will be drawn randomly in a unique manner.

 

If you have any questions, please ask in this thread.  Participants must post in this thread.  If you just want to cheer folks on, you can also post in this thread!

 

Good Luck!!

DRIVVEL  (new word someone who whines)

 

I spoke to Winchester about a month ago.  They stated that they are continuing to make the ammo and ship it, but they cannot keep up with demand.  I've seen the 17WSM ammo show up at my local Walmart (30 miles away is the closest that sells ammo) with some frequency, but it is only a box or two.  Also, it is one of the items that the resellers are buying when they camp out in front of the Walmart's front door waiting for them to open, then rushing to the ammo case.  I have had no problems getting the ammo from friend's of mine who are looking for me.  They are in the Northeast portion of the states and they are finding it at large retailers, such as Walmart, Academy Sports, Sportsmans Warehouse, etc.  

 

With regards to the cracked cases, I have a fresh batch of the 20 grain ammo that I just acquired, so I will be shooting those in one of the new Stainless Heavy Barrel B.MAG rifles that I just picked-up from my FFL yesterday.  I have experienced very few split cases with my original B.MAG and my Contender, so I'm not finding it to be an issue with the ammo I bought last year.  I am hoping Winchester fine-tuned their production line to resolve any issues that showed up in the past (that goes for Savage as well).

 

I've found that like most companies, even us in the "media" get told very little, so I don't have a lot of information.  However, with the recent levels of rimfire ammunition hitting Cabelas, Gander Mountain and some of the other online shops, I'm hoping the 17WSM ammo is poised for a large run to hit the market.

 

Thanks for the kind words guys.  We also have another member who has offered two boxes of his own to put towards another giveaway, so that is awesome as well!

 

Now we just need some people to participate in this giveaway.

Feel free to spread to word to anyone you know who does not have 17WSM, but has a rifle.

Just picked up my B Mag Thursday and came across this site while attempting to find ammo.  To say the least, it is very hard to find the ammo based off the hours of searching for it.  I talked with a gentleman at Gander Mountain and he told me that Winchester developed the round and Savage quickly made a rifle for it and Winchester is not in a big hurry to help their competition sell more rifles.  I feel that it is just a shortage issue myself like all other rimfire ammo at this time.  Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to win some ammo.  That is downright good hearted of you to offer.  I will post a picture of the B Mag tomorrow. Working late nights tonight.

I PM'd you some information about your pictures (I removed them for now).  You need to actually print-out the Varminter Magazine image and place it next to the B.MAG rifle when you take the photo that you post here for the contest.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!

 

Thanks!

You know what?  Message me your address.  You taking your son out with you makes you a winner already, so you're getting some ammo.  I'll send you a box of each!

 

This contest is still in effect, but tuffstuff gets some ammo just because.  :D

 

Run your cursor over my name, then click the "Send Message" button to send me your info.  Also send me your son's t-shirt size!
