Savage VLP DBM 22-250 1:9
first post here, from Australia.
I'm looking for any info or experience you may have with this Rifle. I'm interested in what weight range of projectiles it will stabilise, particularly at the heavy end. I'm hoping up to 80 grns....?
I can't see too many factory rifles in 22-250 with a fast twist of 1:9 other than the Savage and the Ruger American at 1:10. I can get a Steyr SSG69 with a 1:9, but it is a big gun and heavier than the Savage which already has me concerned. I'd prefer a 22 or 24 inch barrel, as I want it as a walk around gun as well as a Varminter from a fixed position, but, for the right gun, I can live with the hefty weight. If you have know of any other factory rifles worth considering, please let me know.
