Re: Savage 22-250 groups?

It sounds like ammo related, have you tried any HSM or Black Hills ammo? You could try the Rem UMC HPFB, too. You might be able to tweak the rifle too, but it might get involved lol, bedding etc.

Good luck.

    I've gone up to 60 grain AMAXES and H 4895 powder. Also bullet length is extended to just goosing the rifle lands.

    Heres the link on this website

    Interesting find on Hornady 60 gn vmax


    Remember...every rilfe has a touch of difference built into it....as a shooter it's your responsibility to find that sweet spot for YOUR rifle and then go bang Bang Bang all day

    He difinetly could get an accuracy load if he handloaded... He is shooting factory only though, and doesn't sound like he is gonna handload...

    Good point though. My accuracy is from 52 gr. Bergers, and Varget, in Lapua brass and CCI BR2 primers. 0.020" off the lands.

    Thanks for the good word. Unfortunately it's a spare time thing and I haven't done as much to it as I'd like..., but I tried to make it decent. Anything else you wanna kno, pm me.

    Thanks again.

    Make sure everything is tight as well, bases rings and stock. I've had 3 Savages that the front action screw has been loose on. As mentioned earlier make sure the barrel if free floated as well.

    Good luck
