Re: savage long range build questions
Barrel makers I have used are Douglas, Lothar Walther, and Benchmark. Benchmark barrels seem to be very accurate. My cousin has twp of them now. One holers for sure. The Lothar is a good barrel, but poor customer service. That enough will steer me away from my next barrel from them. No shame for the Douglas. It's a 338 Lapua, has been very accurate especially on cold bore shots. We have been able to calculate, dial in, and land good hits on steel to 1100yds without any issues. Of the 3, my next will more than likely be a Benchmark.
Caliber is totally up to you. I have been leaning toward the 300 RSAUM after having an opportunity to shoot and load for a friend of mine.
