New Savage.

I just recently bought a Savage 110FP in 7Mag I'm still working on getting it set up and was wondering if there is anything I should do first. I plan on using a Ken Farrell one piece base and maybe Burris rings my plan is to shoot in the factory 1000 yard class. All suggestions are welcome.

Re: New Savage.

At this point it still has the factory stock and the Savage Accu trigger. It has been bedded and has a block in it. it has a 24" heavy and crowned barrell.

Re: New Savage.

.. Hey Scott.. Glad ta see someone else from NC posting.. I just got a 112 in .308 and so far it's proving interesting right-from-the-box, but I'm sure it'll eventually end up with a few modifications.. I use the Burris Signature Zee's and have had good luck with them.. It's nice to be able to get more adjustment from a simple insert should I need it.. I'd be interested in keeping up with your progress.. d:^) JiNC

Re: New Savage.

Make sure you bed the base to the action--follow ken's instructions.

what kind of stock is on it?--probably could benefit from bedding.

Might want a sharp shooters supple trigger as well--need as light as you can stand for 1K

What cal?

Re: New Savage.

Get your self a recoil lug from SSS and one of their triggers if you can afford it , they're much better than the accu trigger for extreme accuracy.
when you replace the recoil lug set you headspace to a minimun by using one of you resized cases as the headspace guage.
