Re: Almost done!

liltank,
Looks good man! Gotta love those Savages. Have you tried the 178gn A-Max in it yet?
I wish B&C would start making that stock for the LA Savage. Does anybody make a similar stock for LA's? JohnnyK.

I know Choate has a new design that will accommodate the LA along with H-S. Stockade stocks make Savage specific stocks. Matter of fact he specializes in stocks for both long and short actions. My next stock for a Savage build will have a DBM bottom metal set up. I opted to make a wood plug for this build and feed it with single rounds. I shot the 178 A-max when it was a 1:10 twist, but have yet to try it in this one. I went with the BTHP due to the higher BC. That is why I am considering the JLK's. They are a little cheaper than Berger and you get 25 more bullets per order.

Barrel- $500 (specified contour, chambered, hand lapped, threaded for muzzle break, threaded for my action)
Scope-$275 w/ Butler creeks (closeout sale on swfa.com)
Stock-$220
Rings-$35
Base-$40
Recoil Lug-$35
Bi-pod$89

I still want to get a bolt handle, and target trigger set up to lighten it up a bit more. I would like to be in at 12 to 14oz. Right now its better part of 1.5lb pull.

Yep, that would be the one. So far I like it. The eye relief is a little short for on the bench, but should be okay shooting prone.

The original price on these are in the $375 -$400 range. I would scrape it up if your interested in getting some new optics. The MOA adjustment is right around 68MOA. I could get around 50MOA after setting my zero with my 300WSM. I have to reset for my .308 now. Should be about the same, but maybe a little more. That is with a 20MOA base. The adjustment is one of the reasons I wanted the Viper over my Buckmaster.
