.22-250 Rem Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter

Here's a link to my review for my Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter in .22-250 Rem. It's an awesome gun, even if it is a little heavy (14.8 lbs.) for walking distances.

Savage 12LRPV
Leupold VX-III 6.5-20x50mm LR
Talley Rings - Impressive quality, ease of use, increased strength
Harris S-series bipod 6-9"


3-shot group @ 100 yds: 0.140"

Great write up!

Looks like it really like's Varget.

Re: .22-250 Rem Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter

If you put good optics on it, the accuracy will astound you. In almost all of the groups there is a good deal of human error/imperfect conditions (breezy, etc.). This gun never really shot a 3-shot group over 1" and now the cold bore is in the same hole. I have more loads to play with yet, when conditions are better. The only problem with varget is that there is a variation between lots, and I now have a new lot, so searching for accuracy once again.

Good Luck.

Great review. I have the same gun but with a Bushnell 4200 6-24x on it. I have had spectacular results with H 322 and the 52gr Berger.




I liked it so much that I got another one to build a 300 WSM off of. It's actually cheaper to buy the complete rifle, then build it up from there than to buy all the parts on their own.

Great group!!

I haven't tried either H322 or H335 yet, or the 52gr Bergers. However, mine does like the 52gr Speer HPs.

I liked this action so much, that I am going to use it on my custom rifle build in 6NormaBR:

Savage Left load/Right eject - $450
Hart 1.125" dia. 30" stainless - $650
Sharpshootersupply dog tracker stock - $299
Then of course optics, haven't decided yet.

I don't have to worry about selling parts either lol!

Keep up the accuracy.

That's going to be a sweet setup. Have you looked into having the action timed and tuned? I have my new action getting worked over by Sharpshooter Supply now. When it gets back I have a 28" Pacnor Select Match in 300 WSM and a Leupold Mk 2 6-18x waiting for it.

Post some pictures when you get ithe 6mmBR all put together.
