Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

I have a .308 Savage with the Laminated Stock, nice shooting rifle. I plan on getting another Savage very shortly.

Anyone have any idea what the LR Target 6.5x284 with the 30" barrel's approximate cost will be and when it will be available?

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

I have owned several, a 116 stainless .338 win. mag, a 10FP .308, and a stevens 200 .30-06 (my current deer rifle) All have shot excelently, especially the 10FP. I am planning on building my 200 into a 7mm rem mag or ultra mag, later on in the year....

Jason,
My model 40 shoots the factory 35gr hornady rounds into about .75 of an inch and they seem to shoot the best out of all the factory offerings. I reload using the 35gr v-max hornady bullets with 13gr of Lil'gun and it shoots them into .5" group when I do my part. I have found it very easy to reload for.

Ian,
Anytime you want just send my a message and we can take the rifles out.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

Savages are putting some very nice stocks on their more expensive models. h.s precision and mc millian. They are many nice stocks out their for savages, nearly as many as for remingtons. I will try to post some pictures of my savages. And let every one see the PTG spiral fluted bolts in the actions when they arrive. I plan on using only my custom savages for 1000 yards BR next year. Bell and carslon also make a vey nice tactical stock for sacages around 200 bucks and it to has a aluminum skelton for the action.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

Ditto to all the good things above. Savage also covers us southpaws better than most anyone else. The plastic stocks aren't all that great, and if you don't check the bolts holding it to the receiver frequently, they'll work loose and drive you nuts at the range until you remember to tighten them.

I got a Stockade stock on the way, along with better bolts, and we'll see if that cures the only downside I can think of.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

have a savage 10fp... it shoots better than me... for example, working up loads for it with a 178 amax and varget powder:(3shot)
44gr.- nice group of .567 ctc(two basically in the same whole)
44.5gr.- .317 ctc
45gr.- same .567 ctc with two more in the same whole.

I think the groups may have opened up from me pulling the shot. but otherwise they shoot well.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

Lerch and I used a stock Savage 12BVSS to kill 2 pds each @ over 1000 yds.




These three were all on the same evening. I think we fired something like 27 rounds.

Here is the same rifle after Kirby got ahold of it.


It still shoots ok, despite what Kirby did!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


..and here is the 270 AM built on a Savage.
