Try as I might, I have been unable to come up with a solution for a magazine that holds more than 5 rounds for the Savage 93 in 17HMR or 22WMR. I have thought of cutting off the "stop" for the follower on the stock magazines which appear to be the limiting factor. Another option would be find an aftermarket extended mag, but I've yet to find anything.

Anybody out there able to load up more than 6 at a time???

Dont do surgery on the folower, it dosent help i tried it. best I think you could do would be to cut the top off another magazine and tack it onto the bottom.

Thank, Loonwulf. I would have wasted one without your shared experience. I may try to weld two together at some point..

Nobody have any aftermarket options??
