as for the savage issue.: i havent played with savages new system for holding actions in stocks., but a though is bed the rifle and then the issue of 'special torque' may not be there anymore.
just a thought

That's a vid I found through accurateshooter.com. Check that sight out. They have a ton of good info.

Re: need help w/poor grouping- Savage model 11 Long Range Hunter 308

Ok, so I shot 2, 3 round groups w/ both the Fed and Hornaday Match grade ammo w/ the Model 11 long range hunter and the groups are still poor. So I removed the Bushnell 4200 Elite Tactical and the rings and rail. I did shoot 3 groups with my Mueller equipped Model 12 22-250 just to make sure that my portable bench or some other thing wasn't behind the model 11's poor grouping problem b4 I remove the Mueller scope from the 22-250 to put on the model 11 to see what gives. The 2 groups from the 22-250 were roughly .5 MOA.
Kind of hate to take the scope off of the 22-250 to check the 308 to find out if the problem is coming from the Bushnell 4200 but I don't have any other good choices.
What's anybody's guess as to how much I will have readjust my data table for the 22-250 when I finally get my Mueller back on it? Thanks, -Andy

P.S. I can't back out the allen heads in the rings for the Mueller because the cheap little allen wrench strips itself, the set screw heads themselves look fine. I did order an 'accurizing' torque wrench set from Midway, hoping the bits that come with it are better quality than the wrench that came w/ the rings. Any other suggestions?

Love my LRH 308 I shooT out to 900 yards with a Accupoint on it, I use Reload 15 with Molly SMK 175 get .05. I would like to get a tactical stock hard to find because of the hinge floor plate. Any one have tactical stock recombination for the Savage LRH ?

Call Kevin Rayhill at Stockade Stocks. He specializes in stocks for Savages. They are built well and feel real good in the hands.
