Getting my 112BVSS .25-06 dialed in...

Hey yall, I'm new here, my buddy Ruck on this site sent me this way and I've been reading on here for hours and finally decided to join.

I just recently purchased a Savage 112BVSS (which was a very hard gun to find) in a .25-06, and I set it up with a a Nikon Monarch 6.5-20x44 AO scope, Leupold off-set rings, Burris 2-piece bases, and a Harris 9-13" ultra-light bipod. I'm hoping it will be a good shooting groundhog gun out to 800yds, time will tell.

Now for my questions, I'd like to lighten up the accu-trigger on it a bit, however I've lost the instructions for doing so; I still have the little tool. What is the protocol for doing so?

Also, I was planning on running Burris signature series rings (adjustable MOA), but the action on this rifle is too long for those to work with the bases I have vs. the short tube on the Nikon Monarch. Is there any way I can run the Burris rings on this rifle, i.e. any bases that would bring the mounts close enough to make it work?(I really don't want a one piece base either). Or, am I just going to have to use the setup thatís on there (Leupold off-set rings) and shim them to get the MOA that I need?

Thanks for any advice.

You shoudln't need any special rings or bases to get to 800 yards with a 25-06. I have one and all I have is the Leupold standard base, and rings. I have the Leupold 6-18 Target scope on it as well. I have no problems getting to 800 yards with a 200 yard zero. I have never shot farther then 800 yards with my 25-06, but I still had a complete revolution on my dial, so I'm sure it would go to 1000. On another note on my 300 RUM, I have the MK4 4.5-14 and I once again have no special rings or bases. I just slap the scoped on, bore sighted, zeroed at 200 yards and I can get to 1150 yards, and I still have at least a full turn on my dial. I dont believe in special 10 MOA bases, espeically for the price when I haven't found the need for them.

Ok, well good to know. I was wanting the extra MOA ability in case I needed it, but I may not it sounds like. One of my buddies has a 1,000yd range that I'm going to go to this spring, but until then I was just wanting to get the rifle roughly set up to shoot out that far (1,000yds on the range, most varmint hunting under 800yds).

Re: Getting my 112BVSS .25-06 dialed in...

Bullet choice might have something to do with it. I was using the 115g btip with an advertised bc of .453. Decently high bc for a .257" hunting bullet. It works very well to 600 yards on coyotes and deer. I just practiced at 800 to make the 500-600 shots look a lot easier. But once again, I cant see spending $150 on a base when most LR cartridges with .450 BC bulelts or above, will get to 1000 yards with a 200 yard zero. I haven't seen the need for them. NOt anything against the people on here that use them, because a lot of them do, I just dont see why. Thats a lot of money for me, making minimum wage to spend. I first tested to see if it would get me to 800 or 1000 yards. Then when you know it doesn't, then yes, that have a purpose. But for your intended purpose, I dont see any reason why standard bases/rings wont get you to 1000 yards with a flat shooting 25-06 and a good high BC bullet.

Thanks for the info. Anyone have any input on adjusting the accu-trigger?
