Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

Hi, again,

I use the Burris pos-i-lines to get the max out of the scope.
Any thing else would be ......

C'ya. John.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

Lee,

My dad just got the Farrell from Sinclair and uses the Weaver style Warne rings. I've never used the Burris rings for Weaver bases, what don't you like about them?

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

I had a had time getting the base to tighten fully on the weaver bases. Perhaps I had a bad set of rings or something, but they were awfully hard to tighten. They just didn't seem as secure as I would like. I do like the look and design of the Warne rings though.

Re: SAVAGE SWITCH BARREL QUESTION

I too am doing a Savage project
One barrel is a 19-223 Calhoon
Another barrel is a 20-223 AI.

I really do like this rifle as there are some cartridges I like to play with, but for whatever reason it is not cost-effective to build up a rifle and scope combo for everything.

Just waiting for the weather to warm up.

If you guys are interested in the rounds that kick a little less, I will be happy to tell you how mine is working [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Oh, and if there is a factory cartridge you would ever like to play with, you can get a take-off or new Savage barrel from Numrich arms. Less than 100. Good for a play barrel, as I like to call them.
