Savage 308 5R!

I was at Cabelas looking around when I saw a Savage that looked different. It was a 308 with a BA style bolt handle and a DBM and had a heavier 24" barrel. The Twist rate is 1:10, the kicker is the guy at the counter said this rifle was a cabelas exclusive rifle that had 5R rifling and the price tag was 559.00. I think people @ cabelas don't have a clue what they are talking about so I blew it off. Long story short I did some research and found out the guy was right and bought the rifle. I bought some ASYM custom ammo shooting 175 SMK's and the rifle is shooting .4's and .5's. I have Wilson dies and a bunch of lapua brass on its way so I will find out what this thing can really do.

Sweet!!! Cabelas frequently has rifles you can't find anywhere else. They tell Savage what they want and order a bunch of them. I wish I had that rifle.
