Re: Savage vs Remington

Yeah he suggested new barrel because hitting hard spot with the reamer will chip it or break it. Something about inconsistency in the metal used, anyway he almost retired and builds BR sticks for fun now and only takes orders what he want....

    Then I'd send it back to Savage with a report from him and ask for a new one, or just eat it and have a good custom bbl installed.

    I know my Savage liked shooting dirty. Looks like you were able to control the flier on the last few groups you showed. I know changing seating depth has always helped me with fliers. But... if you your fed up with the Savage I'll give you a couple hundred for it! ;)

    I know there's no chance of that happening, but it's worth a try!
