Re: Out of the box Accuracy.

Why does it surprise people by now, that Savages shoot?
That's plenty over 1/2moa, & with a little work, better still wouldn't surprise me.

They shoot

Re: Out of the box Accuracy.

I agree with Mike. I have known several gun and outdoor writers over the years and - generally - they are prone on occasion to some exaggeration. Most of the equipment which is featured in their epics is on loan from the manufacturer. For this favor, they are sometimes beholden to them, and little if any criticism is expected. So, every time I read one of these articles, I take it with a grain of salt until proven accurate or not.

Layne Simpson by chance? The only roadtest I pay much attention to is my eyes looking over another guy's shoulder when he pulls the trigger. I've seen just about every brand name shoot well at one time or another, and of course I've seen some real duds.

I think some brands have been traveling on their namesake for many years, and their chickens came to roost about ten or twelve years ago.

Re: Out of the box Accuracy.

Well, mine isn't straight out of the box, but all I've done is a barrel swap and I couldn't be happier. I was convinced I had a shooter when I was consistently smacking steel at 1K+ with less than 100 rounds of trigger time, which included load development and zeroing. All the evidence I needed.

Re: Out of the box Accuracy.

The model 12 F-Class I had shot .6542 moa at 1k at the Whitehorse range in Buchannon, WV with very unpleasant conditions. Yes a 6.542" 5 shot group with 18mph 45* wind at 1k box stock rifle, EGW base, Warne rings, and a 12-42x56 NF. Most Savages I've seen are tack drivers or don't take much to get them there, but like any company you can get a dud occasionally.
