Re: Savage fp in 223
that maybe pushing it. But, what the heck try it. After all it will give you more quality alone time at the range.
I have a savage 7mm rem mag and it loves 140 and 150 grn pills,( 3/4" 5 shot groups @100) But, 162 and 175 grn pills give me 2" 5 shot groups @100. For me the heavy pills dont work. Whereas a friend of mine has a Remington 700 bdl 7mm rm that loves 162 and 175 grn and the 150's for him not so good.
Try different weights and see what works for you, that is the only way to see what really works in your rifle.
