I gave my brother a 93R17 that had a similar issue, which manifested itself as unreliable feeding. He didn't want to send it back to Savage so we started about filing a few parts to remove burrs (slowwwwly) and that only fixed the problem a little. Later he sold the rifle back to me so he could pick up a Browning 22. I had more time to look at it and figured out that it was a magazine issue, not an issue of the firearm. I recalled that the same 17 magazine could be used with 22 mag. All that I really needed to do for reliable feeding and no rub was squeeze/bend the lips of the magazine together toward the front of the round. Starting out with 3 magazines, 2 could withstand the bend and one case could not, which left me with a spare set of internals.
So if you're like my brother and don't want to send it back then the problem can be fixed. If you're willing to go without your rifle for a while and let the pros fix it, that might be a good route as well.
