I also shoot a LRPV although it is chambered in .204 Ruger. As far as I can see, this is one of the best factory varmint guns a person gat buy for a reasonable price. I Topped mine off with a Burris Black Diamond 8x32-50 and load 40 gr vmax with winny cases and 26.2 gr of IMR 4064. Best five-shot group yet is .121 and I generally dont stray too far from the 1/4'' range. This group was shot at 100 yrds in Kenmore, WA.

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

I have two Savage 22-250's, and had a third one for awhile. Barrels are all 12 twist. Seems to like the Sierra #1365 bullet over IMR3031. Start with about 33.5 grains of powder and work your way up to about 36.0 grains. Seat the bullets about .002" off the lands, and use a Federal primer. The worst that any of these rifle shoot is about .350" five shot groups. One rifle (the one that's gone) would shoot in the .180" to .210" area often. The Mod. 12 single shot rifle started out shoot just under .40" groups, and now is shooting this same load (35.5 grains) at .300", and often dips into the mid twos. The other rifle shoots in the very low threes all the time as well, but will get down into the mid twos on occasion.
