My Savage 12BVSS 223

After considerable soul searching in my search for a varmint rifle, I ended up with a Savage 12BVSS in .223 cal. My Aim was to get the best varmint rifle setup under $1000. I mounted a Mueller 8x25x50mm scope with Warne HIGH detachable rings/mounts.

The rifle shoots better than I do. It has a smooth tight action, nice finish, fluted barrel. It is heavy and solid. I can keep my eye on the target during a shot. I am shooting 52 gr SPBT from Georgia Arms.

The scope is adjustable down to 25 meters, has great clarity and an adjustable objective lens. It also has an adjustable red dot. So far I am really happy with this scope.

I am really glad I went with Warne rings and mounts. They are solid, strong, great finish.
The rifle/scope performed very well. I used a camera tripod as a rest with a rifle 'V' rest on top. That worked well as I could set it up quickly and it worked great for standing shots where the grass would otherwise obscure the critter.
Here are some pics including information on where I bought each component and its costs.

This is an off-the-shelf setup. I am following with interest the advice found on this sight.

My next rifle will be a Browning A-Bolt 338 Win Mag - just waiting for my 'Jeff's fun account' to accumulate enough $.

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

Len,

I had best intentions to put together a 338 Win Mag Browrning for a hunt this fall but I did draw a license for the hunt in Montana. So I am licking my wounds but still getting ready for bow season here in VA!

I took my Savage 223 to Montana for some varmint management. It worked great. I was shooting my reloads - 55 gr boat tail pushing 3200 fps. Very destructive load on gophers. I am playing with a couple heavier bullets, 65 and 80 gr to see how they perform.

I too enjoy seeing other weapon set ups.

Regards,
