Re: Personal Experience With...
I have a rifle that is either a special run or somebody's screw up. It is a Savage, marked model 12 on the barrel, however, it is a long action in 6.5-284. It started life (with me) as a BVSS but I traded the stock for a Varmint, Low Profile (VLP) with another LR forum member.
It has shot sub 1/2" from day one. I have killed a few whitetails and one or two hogs with it. It weighs right at 11 lbs and is a pleasure to shoot; low recoil and sooo accurate. 1.5 - 2.0" groups with 120gn Ballistic Tips at 500yds. JohnnyK.
