Re: Hats off to Savage

From Sniperjwt:
Also only have a cheap tasco 4-16-40 pronghorn scope on it.
And from Liltank:
With a little more practice and a better scope you can expect that group to shrink a few inches.
Maybe. Or maybe this shows you don't need a $1,500 scope to get 1MOA at 1,000 yards. Then again, maybe even a crap rifle and/or scope can occasionally put 3 shots into a foot at that distance.

Nice shootin' Sniperjwt. Think you can do it a second time?

Disclaimer: I'm in no way criticizing Savage rifles or Sniperjwt's skills. I own a couple Savage's and think highly of them. And I've never met Sniperjwt. I'd be pretty pleased with myself to place 'em on target like that at over 1/2 a mile. I'd be much more pleased to do it consistently. Remember, Team Savage does awfully well in F-Class competitions with stock Savage rifles.

Re: Hats off to Savage

the sharpshooter competition trigger is very good also. very easy to install, no modifacations at all. about $120 from brownells or direct from sharpshooters supply.
good shooters with good equiptment are usually pretty consistant. unfortunatly conditions cant be counted on.

Nice job! My stevens is the only "cheap" gun I've ever had that shoots. I bought it mostly for the action to use on a build, and it's the most fun $300 gun I've had. I've only shot to 622yard, but was happy with a 6.07" group. Keep it up.

Natty, not knock'in any of this thread. I think it is outstanding what he is doing. I use a buckmaster Nikon for my shooting, 6-18x40 w/ target dot. Not an expensive scope by any stretch. I think it is great to see a factory grade trigger and barrel producing that kind of group. Goes to prove that sporter contour barrels can still reach out there effectively.
