Savage Team with impressive showing

This link details the F-Class results team Savage achived with their factory rifles at the world championships. Really impressive for a $1,100.00 rifle.

Re: Savage Team with impressive showing

Very impressive, congrats.

I am curious though, did they use off the shelf factory Savage rifles or are these hand picked, specially assembled Savage rifles that they used?

Reason I ask is that if you sit down and build most any of our modern factory rifles correctly they will shoot extremely well. Its the vast majority of them that are thrown together that do not shoot as they should.

Just wondering which they are shooting. I would suspect handpicked and rightfully so, obviously they are shooters and I have always been impressed and a supporter of the accuracy of the Savage rifles. They do have their weak links and limitations but I fully believe that on averge they are some of the most accurate out of the box rifles on the market.

Congrats again.

Re: Savage Team with impressive showing

I would love to see a rundown of the equipment used for their setups including scopes, bullets bases etc. Shooting well is one thing, but taking that many metals is a statement to me that it is more than a fluke round. I wonder if the rifles are hand lapped or modified in any way etc.
