Re: Savage vs Remington

Well I still have hope, this thing got barrel nut so its a quick fix, just got to order one of these barrels with large shank and I'm ready to go, by the way this was send to me by Savage directly as the replacement for LRP in 260 which I bought in the end of April, then I waited 2 month and decided to call them and they offer me LRPV either 6 BR or 204 Ruger. 204 Ruger is great varmint cartridge but since I had 260 in mind 6BR was better choice... I thought... I still got Lapua Scenar bullets in 6.5 and brass to load 260....

Have Fred at 4D reamers do you up with a 26" McGowen large shank in the same contour in stainless match for 260AI 8 twist, 310 to your door and usually only a 4-5 week wait.

Re: Savage vs Remington

Backwoods, I would, but I don't have lathe to finish my chamber, but I could always buy T handle with finish reamer then it would be the same as the price for another barrel, actually I'm ready to get new one, but since I got in to 6BR I have to decide which caliber by the way this 6BR sometimes it shoots nice groups, I'll find targets I'll post them , but this groups would never repeat, I had better luck with my TC ICON PH in 308, I could shoot 5 shot group and cover it with a dime, but I sold it....

Jinx man I feel for you. Sounds like my family's luck with Chevy's. We went through four of them in the seventies and they were all nothing but duds.

Re: Savage vs Remington

Jinx check and make sure if you already haven't that savage didn't send you a 12 twist instead of an 8. Fred can also put a 6br match chamber in your current barrel if the rest of it is fine for around 70 bucks. Just a thought cause a 6br isn't hard on barrels and should have 2500+ rounds left in it.
