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.

Have you considered building one on a long action? I have one with a Hart barrel on an older 112 stagger feed action and a Krieger barrel on a new 116 centerfeed action. It lets me seat the bullet anywhere I want and still feed them from the magazine.

Re: Savage Weather Warrior Series

Bringing this one back from the dead. Looking at a Model 16 in Weather Warrior FHSS, in 7mm mag.

Anyone have one and have any encouraging thoughts about it? I got a new Savage Trophy Hunter XP in 7mm-08 for my daughter this year, and it's a tack driver. I'm looking to pick up a new rifle myself now, a good all around rifle. Thinking of putting a Zeiss Zeiss Conquest 4.5-1444 with Rapid-Z 800 reticle.

I see no reason for a muzzle break on this considering it has a pretty good butt pad on it now for recoil. I don't see it kicking too much more then my 280 shooting a 160 grain bullet.

Would appreciate anyones thoughts. Thanks.

Re: Savage Weather Warrior Series

I ended up with a 7mm Weather Warrior. I got the accutrigger but not the accustock and it is a blind magazine. This is my hunting rifle. I do my own reloading and settled with 162gr Hornady SST's. I am not certain what MOA it shoots but I have killed a good amount of deer/elk with it already. I have a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 duplex with target turrets mounted on it. No muzzlebrake and I can't complain about it, fairly light rifle for packing.

Also have to say that I liked it so much that I bought another in .243 and switched out the barrel myself to make it a
6.5 Creedmoor with the same non accustock and blind mag. On this one I bedded the action and put a Sightron SIII 6-24x50 LR scope on it. It shoots less than 1" groups at 200yrds and I'm hitting targets out past 800yrds. I just need to learn how to dope the wind better.

I have 116 FCSS in 300 win mag, and recoil isn't bad at all. I have a heavier scope on it, (Zeiss Conquest 3-12x56) but I don't see that making that much of a difference.

My brother has a Tikka T3 Lite in 7mm Mag. It's a tack driver, but it's abusive compared to my Savage.
