Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

How about a Savage 112 BVSS in 300WM! Can be found for around $700. Mount a decent scope and you may just be good to go. This one here of mine is straight from factory stock gun. Did a 50 round break in then shot a .85 5 shot group and the next weekend shot a .215 three shoot group!





Good shooting,

BT Sniper

6.5x300- I am looking on Savage's website and cannot find that gun! I see the 12 BVSS in 300WSM but I do not see any model 12's in 300 win mag. Do they just not show it on their website?

Thanks! Great looking and shooting gun!

Thanks,

Savage just recently (within last couple years) made a limited production run of the 112 BVSS rifles. I found mine new on one of the gun auction sights. There still may be a few around but I doubt you will find any offered from factory at the moment.

I'm very pleased with the results. Difficult to shoot off hand but from a rest it is awesome.

Savage has a custom service and should make you one, it won't be a 12 it will be a 112 (long action) you will need a dealer to call and get the price though as they will only quote retail to a non FFL. Call Savage and ask to speak to Effie, I believe her last name is Sullivan.

Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

My current rig is a Howa 1500 Varmint supreme chambered in .308 winchester. It works great on deer and pigs to the extent I feel confident pulling the trigger. It also pulls double duty as a long range F class gun. Including optics and aftermarket stock I have just over $1,000.00 in it.

Very good Post

Let's remember...when the time for hunting is over " YOU " can always upgrade your existing barrel to a varminter or competition barrel. Hart , Shilen and so forth....around $ 350 outlay

Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

Just to had my 2 cent.

Have been interest in long range shooting but was "price away".

Now im in the diretion on a shooting club near my home and have make some friend that shoot loong range. Especialy that have place to do so.

One got a hunting store and after talking with him i have but cash on a rifle.

It a(brand new) tika t3 varminer, set triger in 7mm rem, scope will be a elite 6500 with turell.

Will cost me a lil over 2500$ cnd. Ok could have been less with a use rifle but im getting New stuff. Im doing the break in and will have a class from my friend on how to do it right, both break in and long range shooting.

Plus have sold a rifle that i will not use any more so it bring the cost down.

It will be a 1000 yrd gun. So no need for more for now.

If im liking long range( wich i sur i will) by the time that rifle will be burn out i will have save the $$ to customise it.

Keeping the rifle for a base, adding a custom barell will be lot cheaper thant havig it custom all the way!!
