Thanks for the info I have been wondering how well that rifle shoots.

not bad at all. SO I take it the break is pretty effective.

Whoops forgot he shot it from a lead sled. But the brake is very effective. It feels like a 308 win.

My little brother Jim has almost the identical rig that shoots about the same.

Great choice for a factory .338L.

Congrats you obviously got a good one.

Very good shooting there too.

Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

When my dad gets back from his black bear hunt id like to stretch it out a little farther. Probably start at 500 and work our way out. The only problem is the wind NEVER stops here in sw north dakota
