FS - Custom savage model 12 short action in 6br***SOLD***

I recently built another 6br (fully custom) for bench use so this one has to go. This gun has been fun and very satisfying to shoot for me. Barrel is a 1.250 no taper kreiger barrel in 8 twist to shoot the 6mm 105s/107s/108s. Jim Caudill (aka "mauser man" ) up in Sunbury Ohio completely went over & trued the action, lugs, boltface, chamber and fit the new barrel. The gun is as perfect as you could ever get a savage short action. Barrel has 700 rounds down it and is good to go another 2000+ rounds.

Gun is very accurate and easily capable of 1/2 moa or better depending on your components.The gun loves to shoot 29.9-30.1 gns of varget shooting Berger 105s or Sierra 107 mk's. As you can guess, Bergers get the best groups out of the 2.

Its simply a 6br, nothing fancy really. Yes Lapua makes factory ammo for it but 99% of 6BR shooters handload. The general rule of thumb for a 6br is load it with 30 gns of varget and top it off with a 105 berger and you should get half moa or better.

check out the link below on more 6br info. Its my favorite cartridge. Super easy to shoot/tune, ultra efficient, economical to shoot, low recoil, very capable at long distances.
