Re: Factory guns: Savage 112 VLP or Rem 700P?
Well, I'm the proud owner of a Savage 112 BVSS in .300WM. It seems that the new 112 VLP has not been released yet (only the short action guns are available), but I was able to find a BVSS by calling and emailing every shop I could google within driving distance. I think I found the only remaining BVSS 300WM in the state of PA (I had to drive 3 hours to pick it up). I think I got a good deal on it too- $550.00 new in the box at Grice Gun Shop in Clearfield.
Next step, save up for a scope. I'm unsure whether the 6-24x50 Burris Black Diamond (30mm tube- 50MOA of Elevation) is worth $300 more than a Sightron 6-24x42 (1" tube- 40 MOA of elevation). These two scopes seem to be leading my list right now (good glass, sufficient adjustment for 1K, sufficient magnification, target turrets, etc.). Thoughts?
