Savage 300WSm

Hey Guys I am a long time reader here and I finally wanted to ask a question. Has anyone here shot the Savage Model 12 300WSM in either I believe the BVSS or the Low Profile both Model 12's. I am looking to get a heavy barreled 300WSM and like the prices they are offered. Any help would do. Thanks Guys

I have a 112 in 300winmag. But mine was a FLVSS with the crappy stock. It's now wearing a Stockade Tactical. I shoot around .5 MOA very consistently. I also just made a model 12 in 220 Swift. It started life as a long action 308win. I screwed on the heavy Swift barrel last week. It shoots .3-.4 with factory ammo.

So what I'm saying is that the model 12 barrels shoot good no matter what action is behind them.

Both of those stocks are very good, but not available to me. I'm a lefty. But I've heard that they are great.

Thanks

Thanks, I thought it would be a good shooter, I had one in .223 that would shoot bug holes with factory 55 gr winchester ballistic silvertips. Just was wondering either to go with the more expensive low profile laminate gun or cheaper plastic stocked one and upgrade later. Thanks for the reply..

I have a 12fvss in 300wsm that I replaced the plastic stock with a laminated low profile stock from savage. It have a burris signature 4x16 on it with talley rings and bases. It will shoot sub MOA loaded with 69.5 gr of ramshot hunter and 165 accubonds. Also has the accu-trigger which I like. Thinking seriously about putting it up for sale because I'm really a 7mm fan.

Why don't you keep the rifle but swap the barrels. Put a 7wsm or 7/300wsm barrel on it?

Send the 300wsm barrel to me. I'll scrub the large shank off and put it on my 112FLVSS.

That has crossed my mind for sure. I'd thought about sending it to sharpshooter supply and letting them put 7mm wsm barrel on it.

I was thinking the same thing, but I did my first barrel swap a few weeks ago and couldn't believe how easy it was. First time took me about 1/2 hour. Now I can swap back and forth in minutes.

Fred at SSS if very good. If you want him to do your swap you should get on the list and have him true and time it at the same time. But be prepared to wait a while. I hear the list is several months long. I guess that is the sign of a good smith that doesn't rape his customers. I've also heard good thing about the Douglas barrels that he uses.

You may also check out Kevin Rayhill @ Stockade Gun Stocks. He also specializes in Savage gunsmithing and is well recommended.
