Re: Load Question?

Savage has the worst desine to try to extend there box magazine, I am coming up with a hybrid design to fix this.
I've never owned a Savage, but I've seen their popularity grow and grow alot over the last 12 yrs or so. A while back they had the rep of offering the most accurate "out of the box" rifle a person could buy....Used to be Remington had that reputation, I think they gave it up to Savage though??

Seems lots of people buy and shoot Savage these days, that may be a good item to design, copyright and sell.

Re: Load Question?

I think I shoot Savage because I can buy a Match barrel and throw it on the gun in no time and go out and shoot load data in such an easy fasion. The free floating bolt makes it to were you can have a accurate long range shooter. I have never had one that shot worse than 3/4 MOA, so I will stick with them until I learn more about other guns I guess.
I just went out and shot this CBI barrel again today and took the same load data I was shooting with the SMK's but used 200 grain Accubonds and to my suprise they shot awesome. I had a 1.118 inch group with 73.5 grains of RL-25 shooting 2855. A terrible group so I shot the Accubond with 74.5 gr. of RL 25 and shot a .338 inch group and the speed was 2878 fps average. I am thinking if I work up in .1 grain steps and hit that node at 2892 I can shrink that group to .25 or smaller. I don't know but I am starting to like these CBI barrels better.
My rig weighs 9 pounds scoped out I will get pics up just for fun
