Got my stock savage 116 in 6.5-284 shooting .25MOA at 200 now. 300 rounds down the tube and the rifle looks brand new, all over, inside and out.
Will be breaking in a brand new model 12 LRP in 260 Rem starting tonight. That rifle is little more money but it will still be under 2k when done. This rifle, with a 140 seated to the lands still fits the mag, and the bullet ogive is pushed to the base of the neck. The LRP is the target model and the trigger feels great. I bet this rifle is shooting bug holes before I have it broke in.
So that leads into the response. In a different post someone was discussing leupold custom scopes for 1000.00 with turrents etc. That puts rifle and scope and 1750 for me plus rings, base, and bipod. Just under 2 k for it all with awesome glass. We can vortex viper pst
's here for $600. If I went that route 1500.00
Will have hands on field time with the viper next week. We'll see if the NF goes up for sale or not.
