260 Remington, Savage build done


Well here is my long awaited project. I have slowly been putting this one together over the last few months. Now to get out and do some shooting. Build is a Savage long action flat top, 26" Shilen heavy varmit 260 Remington barrel, Savage over sized bolt handle, Choate long action aluminum bed blind mag stock, factory trigger adjusted to 3lbs., Bushnell Elite 3200 10x, Redfield rings and bases. Eventually the recoil lug will be replaced and the trigger as well.

Taken from WWII poster, still applies today.

    Good looking gun man, gotta love those savages. Keep us posted on how it shoots. That's a good looking stock to what model choate is that. You wouldn't have a link to where you bought that stock would ya.

    Here is where I purchased it from. They sell a few variations including adjustable check rest. the standard does include L.O.P. spacers. Choate at MidwayUSA To go along with the rifle I also have a wind meter, a Nikon 20x60x82 spotting scope and 100 rounds of factory rem 140 grain green box (purchased for 1/2 price so will use for brass). I still am wanting to buy a chronograph and have not decided on dies. I wish you could purchase bullets in 20 round lots for load development instead of 50+. Would like to try the SMK's, NoslerComp, Hornady AMax. If they are not satisfactory I will give the Lapua and Bergers a try.
