Re: Savage Weather Warrior Series

WOW, alright, you convinced me , I relent, I must reload. Now I have to bum the load specifics from you. What does " .020 jump " mean? I know nothing about reloading, actually, I have only been hunting for less than two years, but fully addicted.
I went to Wyoming for antelope myself, I took the 300 WM. We were pounded with snow, I shot a fair buck antelope and doe antelope. Thank you for the help.

Re: Savage Weather Warrior Series

Congrats on the antelope! They are very fun to hunt.

.020" jump means .020" from the lands or rifling. Most rifles/bullets like to shoot with the longer oal, or closer to the lands, if your mag box allows to do so. For instance, if OAL to the lands is 3.5" and you wanted .020" jump, you'd seat them to 3.480"

I like to start at or .005" off and see how they do. If they dont do well, then I know the only way to go is deeper, and I go in .010" increments.

I've shot those sub moa groups with my 20+ year old, pawn shop special model 110 in .30-06 with factory everything, no bedding, and 1000+ rounds down the tube. I have shot them, but I don't shoot them everytime. I'm still learning how to shoot well, load well, and build well. But honestly, my gun would be a 2 MOA rifle now. I expect that to drop considerbly when I get the new barrel, bed the action, and install the SSS trigger. I think that 90% or more of your "groups" (not shots) must be within what ever MOA you call your rifle for you to be accurate when describing it.
My first new rifle was a steven 200 in 243, was .7 to 1.2 five shot groups on first hand load. After fire forming, ya-hoo! Best groups to date .17" and worst to be no more than half inch. Keeping it clean and cool is the key.

Retumbo, it burns barrel out faster than other powder but gives highest velocity/lowest pressure.

Re: Savage Weather Warrior Series

I've always been a Remington man. I'm getting ready to buy my first Savage. I'm wanting a .300 WSM. I've got it narrowed down to the 16FCSS (DBM and no brake) or the 16FHSAK (hinged floorplate with brake). I've seen different listings for the 16FHSAK showing it has a fluted barrel. I'm looking for a definitive answer. Does anyone know for sure if the 16FHSAK is fluted or not? Are there other models I should be looking at in the .300 WSM chambering? Thanks for the help.

Bob
