    I just took delivery of one in 260 last Friday and put the first 25 rounds through it for break in. Mounted a Nightforce Benchrest with Ken Farrell mounts. Threw together 140 A-max, 44gr H4831, fed match primers, Lapua Brass. .025" off the lands. After my 10th break in shot went to 3 shot groups. Got four, 3 shot groups, .3-.5 MOA at 100 yards. Very little copper fouling. This is my fourth Savage and by far the nicest. Fit and finish is excellent. I really like the HS Recision stock, and the trigger is a very crisp and cosistant 1.5# pull, out of the box. The clip will easily fit and feed the long VLD's when loaded to the lands. Can't wait to fine tune my load.

    You won't be disappointed with this rifle!
