Savage Rifles.??

..I almost hate to ask as this almost always starts a Ford/Chevy debate.. But what have you guys THAT HAVE TRIED THEM found out about them.? I hear a lot of folks talking about how good they shoot but then again a lotta folks wouldn't know a good group if it walked up and kissed'em.!! The whole "modular rifle" concept is attractive but only if it works.. This isn't necessarily for a real "LR" unit.. I like that they're available in some great chamberings from Sharp Shooter's Supply.. Let's hear it.! Thanks.. d:^) JiNC

I have the 10fp in .308 and the 112 in .223 both will shoot under .5 MOA all day long. First one I owned was the 112. First 3 shots clover leafed and I thoght it was junk and wouldn't keep shots 2 and 3 on paper. Damn was I wrong. 200 yards 5 shots .427. The .308 will hold .25-.5 with GMM and handloads. The triggers suck, people bitch about the stocks and the bolt lift is stiff but damn do they shoot.

Mine are the old style. Had a local GS set them to 3 lbs. Not as nice as my GA Precision but shootable.

Jake ... I have new and old trigger models in the laminate stocks (12/112bvss) and have excellent results shooting them. I replaced the old triggers with Sharp Shooter Supply triggers and like them as much as the new Accu-Trigger. The bolts do not work as slick as my Remington VS, but they shoot as good and cost $150 less. I only wish the laminate stock was available in left hand! Mike

Hey Jake: In August, I will be in Cary on the way west (never could get my directions right)to look for Pds. Maybe we could meet and you can shoot my 12 BVSS in .223 Rem. Shoots an average of .643" with the 75 A-max.

Jake, I own a 112 bvss in 300 WM that shoots .75 inch 5 shot groups at 100 yds with factory ammo. Can't wait to start reloading for it to see how tight it will go. I did have to replace the trigger though as I didn't care for the factory one.
