Re: Is something wrong with my rifle?

I bought a new Savage 308 Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter a couple years ago, and it refused to shoot better than 2 MOA, and that was with numerous different hand loads. As well, the shoulder of the chamber was imprinting a very defined pattern on my brass. Turned out the reamer used for the chamber was all gummed up and made an uneven chamber. Returned to Savage (Canada) and took them well over a year to put a new barrel on. You may have just gotten a lemon. My brother has an off the shelf Savage Weather Warrior in 30-06 and it shoots sub MOA. I ended up having a 15 in Lilja barrel put on it an making it my short range hunting rifle. Had it bedded and braked as well. Shoots 1/2 MOA now. Bad luck I guess. My Remington 700 XCR with a Bell and Carlson stock shoots about .6 MOA after bedding, braking and a Timney trigger. The 40x trigger sucks and the Timney drops right in. Hope that helps.
