    thanks guys. here are 2 5 shot groups at 100 yards. the center one was the first 5 shots, the lower group was after a 1/4 minute adjustment to the left. wind was blowing pretty good.

    I am thinking of similar build. How do you like the action? That is almost dead on what Im looking at in 6.5x284

    I love it and it wasn't hard to do either. getting the original barrel off of the action was the hardest part. ended up having to torch the barrel nut to loosen it up but after that it was pretty simple.

    My buddy has a ffl, so I can buy just the action through him. It is cheaper than the Savage, so I was wondering if it as smooth and reliable?
