I received mine about 5 months ago. I did take three months to get it. From speaking to a Marketing manager at Savage they had at that time already sold well over a 1000 of these in 6.5-284. I can see why. When I got mine, after a 20 round break-in. I was able to get 1.25 inch 5 shot groups at 500 yards! The load that worked well was 53 grains of H4831, Lapua brass, Federal Match Primer, 140gr. Hunting Berger VLD. This is producing 2941 fps. The stock is kind of crappy, and the muzzle brake
is frozen in the on position, but with those groups, who cares.
