Re: Savage LRP.... are they over rated...?
I set guns up for people for long range shooting. Every Savage I have done thats 5 yrs old or less is a shooter & most straight out of the box. I hand load for them all so that make a big diff. Last one was a mod. 11 22-250. 1/2 MOA or less. A savage 110 in a 243. also 1/2 MOA or less. 22-250 shot out to 625 yrds & 243 shot out to 750 yrds. I have 2 Savage mod.112s 22-250 (target) shoots 5 shot groups ( with no wind) looks like 1 22 cal shot at 100 yrds.!!! My 7mm mag. shoots 1/4 MOA and have shot out to 1000 yrds Straight out of the box!!! Again I hand load and am very anal about it!!!! Im sure there are some that wont shoot that well but if you hand load and want perfection... most of them will!!! Rem. Is another brand that is great straight out of the box!
