Re: Savage 11 Long Range Hunter??????
I have this rifle in 6.5x284. It is extremely accurate producing consistent .25-.5 MOA out to 500 yards with hand loads. The muzzle brake works fine, but is subject to freezing up. Brake cleaner works to free it up, but I now just leave it it the on position. The Kardsten check piece is a great addition. I have put one on my other rifle, I liked it so much. The stock is OK and has a good bedding system. I di have to remove some material off the fore end tip to fully float the barrel. The accu trigger is excellent. Overall, it ia a great rifle for the money. I also have a Savage LRP in 260 that is as accurate as the LRH. It should work well for your ranges. I would recommend it over the CM. Hornady brass is inconsistent. Your only other option is to fire form 22-250 brass. You can get Lapua for the 260, Performance between the two is comparable.IMHO
