Re: Savage Long range Hunter in 7MM where?

well i have one in 6.5-284 and doesnt shoot .25 groups but still shoots well. i also had one in 300 wm and it would shot around .5 .75 groups. i think that they are great rifles and would recommend them to anyone looking for a otc long range gun

Re: Savage Long range Hunter in 7MM where?

I have one in 7mm mag. I have been very busy. I have had it out twice. One time only breaking it in with factory ammo. The second time was with never fired remington brass, 162 grain hornady sst. Every group after the first one was under .75 inch. smallest was almost a clover leaf but there was a just a sliver of target seperating one of the holes.

Thanks savage7mag and coyotesweetness for the reality check.

I think that's pretty darn good for neither of you having made a lot of effort.

Does the muzzle break seem to work pretty well?

Do you find yourself having to let the barrel cool a lot? Or, are you just shooting 3-5 shots consecutively?

thanks!!!
Richard

The muzzle brake works well but is probably not as effective as some, there is very noticeable difference between on and off thats for sure, hard to be subjective.

I never "let it cool" other than taking turns firing different guns, walking out to put up new targets and things like that. I probably shot 8-10 3 shot groups in an hour without cleaning and it shot great the whole time.

Re: Savage Long range Hunter in 7MM where?

Hey savage7mag. I want to shoot target style bullets through this rifle and was wondering if the magazine would fit my handloads. I read an aticle that said the 6.5x284 Norma can handle the extra length. Not sure if your 7mm could. Maybe you could measure it and post the length. I can't find any info on the Savage website and they are not accepting emails. Thanks in advance.
