Savage 116 FCSS 6.5 x 284 Thread - Please Share Your Findings

Hello all

Searched all through this forum for some information to compare on the 116 FCSS chambered in 6.5 x 284. Found a ton of general savage information, but nothing specifically tailored to this particular rifle/action. I ask that we keep this thread relegated to this model only.

So, what are your thoughts? I love mine, shooting a Berger 140 VLD, Norma Brass, Federal 210M Primer, 51 G H4831SC.

Anyone have any sweet spots they like with bergers? Seemes like .75 off the lands for me did the trick, but I have heard variance of that as well. Interested to hear everyones experience.
