Re: Rem. 700 SPS-Varmint vs. Savage 12FV in .243

I have a Savage 12FV 243 and I love the rifle. With 95gr bergers I shoot 1/2" groups at 200 yards regularly. I have owned a few remingtons in 6mm and what I have found is that you can find loads that shoot well in them but it will take some looking. Where as the savages shoot almost everything very well.

Have you thought of a 6mm of a different sort?

I've been watching this one, wishing I hadn't blown my rifle budget:

Quick-Karl, that is a some really good shooting with a factory rig. .4'S with a factory rig is awesome. Your rifle looks nice too.

<font color="blue">Wildcat,

Thank you. I am very happy with the rifle. I was going to sink a boatload of money into a full custom - Surgeon Action / Schneider barrel etc etc, but my best friend (gunsmith / gun dealer) talked me into this rifle assuring me I would be able to achieve good accuracy for far less money than a full custom and I believe he was 110% correct.
