Just thought I'd post a few pics of my latest rifle...bought it used in Union Gap, Washington yesterday...Savage 112 in .300WinMag...right now she's straight stock..trigger is pre-Accu and has been adjusted as best the previous owners gunsmith could. It's not too bad but will definately go as soon as I get a Timney for it.
Loaded Nosler 165gn Ballistic Tips using 69.0-73.0gn of H4350 and 9.5M. Average velocity for group (72.0gn) shown was 3269fps. That's higher than Nosler 6 list for that powder but getting no pressure signs.
Took the Leupold 6.5-20x40 off of my .25-06 Sendero and mounted on her. Now I gotta get another scope! I had dual dovetail mounts/rings to fit it.
Whatcha' think?...JohnnyK.
