17 Aguila in a Savage



Log in to see fewer ads
Recently I picked up 8 bricks of 17 Aguila. Took a pile to the range last week to check 'em out. I couldn't get the little short buggers to feed. As the bolt carries the cartridge forward, the nose drops a little and jams on the end of the barrel. Has anyone else had this problem? And what did you do about it. I might get an extra mag and try to modify it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have a 17HMR Sav 93 with the heavy barrel. Aguila is one of my favorite ammos. I would say your issue is with the magazine, perhaps a bit tight in the front, not allowing the round to lift up slightly to enter the chamber.



If you can purchase another magazine at Bass Pro or online, do so and see if you have the same problem. I only got one mag with mine and just haven't bothered to buy another.


Aguila has become my go to ammo for .22 HV & SV, 17 HMR [I still have some A17 to shoot up] and .22WMR 40 gr.

MY BAD!!! I WAS THINKING 17 HMR AND DIDN'T SEE HM2 UNTIL I POSTED What I said me still hold however.

I've used .17 Aguila in my Marlin 917 chambered in .17 Mach 2. The rounds don't always feed too well. But, jiggling the bolt handle while feeding the ammo into the chamber helps somewhat. Not perfect but......oh well.


Aguila cartridge in on the right.



Aloha, Mark

i had to work on my magazines to get it to feed. i'll try & take one apart & show you what i had to do to them. after that, they feed fine. i'm thinking i shortened the legs on the follower so it would kick the front of the follower up.

A guy at my gun range had the same problem, which can probably be corrected. BUT, the accuracy was terrible compared to other brands.

I bought a brick a long time ago to shoot in a Ruger 10/22 17 Aguila barrel. They shot fantastic. They shot great in my 17 MK2 CZ also. I bought two more bricks and some loose ammo from a friend. They shot terrible in both guns. Different lot numbers shot very differently. I haven't bought any since. Sad

What do fired rounds look like? I would be concerned about throat damage.
