Re: savage vlp and lrpv

Both rifles will be extremely accurate, however, for extreme2 accuracy lol I believe the LRPV has the upper hand.

1. The action is stiffer due to the fact it only has a port in the left side to eject from. It is a bridged receiver with the feed ramp machined into the action, both of these make it stiffer. The action also attaches to the stock with 3 action screws, not just two.

2. The barrel is a minimal-tapered full 1", no flutes.

3. The stock is a HS Precision, with a full length aluminum bedding block.

I have one of the right-bolt/left-port model in 22-250 1:12" twist. It's awesome. However, it is quite heavy. My gun weighs in at close to 16 lbs. with scope and bipod. As of right now tho it averages about .2 - .3" 4-shots @ 100 yds. with 52gr FB HP bullets. @ 450 yds. I shot a group of about 2" without correcting for wind (the group height was .79", it was spread out on the horizontal).

I have a review for my rifle @: Savage model 12 long range precision.

Although, they now make a LRPV with a detatchable box magazine. Just some food for thought.

Good luck.

The 1:12" twist will be good for bullets under 60 gr. The 1:9" would be best for the heavier bullets (60 - 80grs., high BCs for long range accuracy) such as the 75gr. A-MAX. The 1:9" should also be ok for the lighter bullets provided that they are rated for higher velocities (higher twist rate = heavier jackets).

Good luck.
