JK seriously though all the Savages that i have are great shooters. Shot my 300wsm the other day at 550 and grouped 2.812". Hope your does the same or better. Keep us updated. What kind of scope is on it? It looks like an Osprey.
You may count on updates!
Yes, it is an Osprey. Very dissapointed with that scope. I put it on the rifle for load development. It doesn't track worth beans, doesn't count revolutions of the dials, and has rather limited internal travel, but it will stay put once it's zeroed so I move it around for load development. I'm thinking I will get a Lupold MK4 M1, probably 6.5-20x50mm for it later this summer. I have 4 Leupold scopes, two purchased new, two purchased used, and they all meet expectations.
I recently bought an iPhone just to the BulletFlight ballistics software. I'm delighted with the phone and also with the BulletFlight program. I always have the phone with me so this should work out well. One feature of the BulletFlight program I like a "lot" is the ability to have all the information for all my rifles (bullet, MV, scope height, etc.) entered in it in what amounts to a rifle database. I can pick the rifle in hand off the list, enter the current weather conditions and be nicely preset for the shot. When the shot comes I only need to enter the angle (the phone supplies the angle and sometimes the weather conditions), distance, and there are the scope corrections (windage and elevation) from zero for the shot.
This is the first rifle I've had where I feel the need for portable ballistics capability. I'm looking at the Leupold scope as being good enough to execute the ballistics SW output accurately. I'd rather have a NF but I can get the Leupold for a bit more than half the cost of the NF.
