Re: Pics. of my new gun......

Nice unit!You may want to bed the butt stock to the action,the 454C & 20ga slugs have ben hard on the pistol & both rifle stocks as well as haveing to replace the the mounting screw & nut asembly a few times(bedding the stocks solved the problems).

Was sure surprized!For a bull barrel that MachIV of yours sure balances Sweet.Would be nice to add a barrel similar to it someday but prairie dogs at a mile have all fund tied up at the moment.Hows the not so ugly Savage doing?
Good start!Talking to Ric can be hazzardous to your wallet [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img],kinda nice of Ric to help you along the way.
Get off the computer-take the guns off the carpet & get some trigger time in!!!
No problem!Barrel arrived today,I'll bring the BMGs along on the 25th=CJ

Re: Pics. of my new gun......

Elwood...I guess I'll have to pack the Mach IV when I head to Punxy in about a month or so.

Mach V...That Encore is the cats ***** in the late afternoon when the wind lets up. PD's at 300, point and shoot....POP!!!!!! The not so ugly Savage (.264) is giving me a hard time, it's going to take a little longer than I had figured to whip it into submission. The other not so ugly Savage (.223) has been turned into a .22-250 for the purpose of bustin' balloons in KY in May. I'll need to do some load development for it when I put it back together. Wanting to shoot the 50 grain TNT's in SD this summer. The almost 1,000 rounds I have left from last year shoot about 1.25" at 100...not what I'm after. I'm going to pack them anyways, just in case they're needed by anyone. Heard from Cliff????

Re: Pics. of my new gun......

Thanks for the kind words Halfbreed!! Hey if you cal VVCG, talk with Steve Stratton- he is a real nice guy to deal with!! The barrell is a factory T/C barrell in 26". This is the first Encore I have owned and figured I would get used to it before spending the money on an aftermarket barrell. The stock is a Boyd's laminate. I am going to have a brake put on it this summer. I shot it and it didn't seem to kick too bad. Course that might change shooting 10 rounds in 5 minutes! Well worth it for the fun of shooting though IMO!!

Here are pictures of a couple of my many Savages!
This one is a 112BVSS topped with a Weaver T-36 and a SSS trigger. It is a .22-.250.
And this one is my 110FP .223 topped with a Weaver V-16 also with a SSS trigger. You probably notice that I like Weaver scopes!! I love all these guns. I will probably photo all my other guns some time and post them, but these three are my favorites!!

If you like PURPLE, here you go. Woodchucks HATE this rifle [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Here is another view
