It was a .243 when we got our qualifying shots for the VHA 500 and 1000 yd clubs. Both shots were about 1070 yd for both of us.
25-06 is right, it is now a 6mm/22-250. Those groups were the first load I tried in the gun. With the load I'm shooting now it will shoot 1.5" 5 shot groups @ 400 yds everytime. I really think if conditions were always perfect it would do 1" all the time. It's always the horizontal that gets me.
Hey Bill, I dont know if I ever said Thanks for the 208g AMAX you sent me a while back. Cant remember if I did or didn't, but figured I would say Thanks again. Still haven't tried any of them yet, I got rid of my RUM about the time I got the bullets. My dads 300 RUM is about to be turned into a 338 EDGE. SO the only other 30 cal in my house is a browning a bolt in 30-06 which happens to be my moms gun. I think I'll just hang onto the 208's for later.
I do not think the Fclass guns are out for general public yet. at least that is what savage told me couple weeks ago.
I have one of the LRPVs ordered direct from them in 223 with the 1-7 twist and Savage said I was getting one of the first. Too good a deal to pass up, $565 delivered (MSRP almost $1000) as a Hunter Ed instructor that gets to buy one gun a year at that discount.
I have had several others and most shoot much better than other factory guns for sure.
