Darryl: Thanks for the info.
The gun was giving me great groups at a 100yds awile back..Damn near hole for hole.Then I got a new Choate Varmit Stock for it..I instaled it (after some minor alterations) But it fit great..Then I took it out for some tests and the darn thing wouldnt group..I ruled out the stock because it fits great (no slop anywere).I ruled out the barrel being burned out because I have only used factory amo so far..And I let it cool after three rounds..
At 200yds it's all over a 3x4 piece of paper..Never the same shot in the same general area at the same time..
I should have just baught what I know like a Leapoled or something..I found this scope on the internet at www.atncorp.com
and it sounded so good I had to try it..That was a 700$ mistake I think..
I think your right though..I don't think a stock gun will make the trip..Do you think that friend of yours could build me a barrel to fit this Savage??
I have a chance to win alot of money if I can hit a 3x4 sheet of paper at a mile..There are a buntch of people around here who say that a 300RUM wont make it that far.And besides I just wanna do it so I can say I did..
And if you have any trouble hunting in your old area I hunt area 62-65-66 and 67-61 (If I can draw them)I know a spot that might be right up your alley..It,s in area 62.It over looks the mouth of Spring Creek Canyon with some great long range shots..It,s to long for me but it has easy access and when you get an animal its easy to get to with an ATV (Most the time)..It's a thought..Well thanks again..
