I think it was rebarreled to a 6mm-250 if I'm not mistaken screech. Its kinda hard to read, but you can see it on the groups at 400 yards.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

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.

Re: SAVAGE Rifles - who uses them

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.

Your welcome. They cataloged those bullets this year and they've got some ready to ship so they should be fairly easy to get your hands on now!!

IAN

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.
