Savage B.MAG Survey Results



Log in to see fewer ads
Here are the results of the survey. I wish we would had an even 100 responses, but it really slowed down the last couple of days and I promised the results were going to be published today.

These are screen captures directly from the survey, which is now closed/deleted and no longer able to receive responses. I left them full size for easy reading.

Interesting. Thanks.

One thing that stands out is that 33 answered "More than 1.5" at 100 yds." but 47 voted in the "If you answered 'More than 1.5" at 100 yds.' "

I saw that, but I'll chock up those 14 or so to "No Action Taken".

Seems like he majority is satisfied. what are you going to do with this polling info Eric?

Really Steve the above statement & question aren't worth documenting BUT if you feel you have to record EVERYTHING I say and do have at it. I am sure there are other things that are slightly worse to waste your time.

Not that I can think of anything.

The only thing I planned to do with the information was to post it up for a discussion. However, after seeing the responses about the wood stock, I might send a link to Boyds, just to give them more information.

Although the majority is satisfied, the 1/3 of the responders who are having accuracy issues is enlightening (not in a good way).

44% satisfied is not the majority in any math class I have ever taken. Admittedly it has been quite a while and some things may have changed with the way we teach math now.

Problem is we don't know what the expectation of those having accuracy "issues" actually is.

If their expectation is sub MOA then Savage's 1.5" @ 100yd might be an issue to them.

Personally I wouldn't be happy if it was greater 1.5" @ 100yd. However is it 1.6" @ 100? Got to allow for personal variance.

Eventually quality ammo will start coming out of the factory.

It is however the highest percentage of one unified group, therefore it IS the majority.

64.52% shoot 11/2" groups or less at 100yds. I'm going to make an assumption here that 60% of this group have a less than ideal scope to shoot for groups at 100yds. So, this percentage of accuracy is way better than I was expecting from the posts that I was seeing, here and elsewhere. Most probably had fewer than 150 rounds down the tube also.

Interesting

I did handle a B Mag for the first time in a TN gun shop Thursday. It looked cheap and felt cheap but I think a nice Boyd's laminate would help on both accounts. That said, the poll info is surprising. I thought the B Mag would shoot 1 MOA based on my experience with the HMR & HM2. I don't want one but would still like to see it do well. Savage can do better, I'm sure, and HMR-like accuracy would make an ugly duckling look a little better.
