Re: Knight vs Savage

I got lucky and found exactly what I was looking for. It's an unfired Savage 10ML-II stainless laminate thumbhole. It should be here next week!

    Deertroy, Nice Choice, I'll be picking up my Savage in a couple of weeks, Nice job finding the laminate stock. Mine will have the standard savage (POS) plastic. there are a few aftermarket stock makers for the ML II so I'll wind up going that way. Keep in touch as you develop loads for it, I'll do the same.

    Neither....CVA Accura V2 or a CVA Optima switch barrel. Less expensive, much better tubes and an overall easy rifle to deal with (V2). No brainer far as I'm concerned.

    Today, a better for less deal is hard to pass up.

    Switch the standard breech plug to a recessed (granulated powder Western Powder plug) and shim the pin retainer (I suggest a smith for that) and you have a perfect shooting rifle for an extra 20 bucks. I load TMZ's with 100 grains of Blackhorn and it's a tack driver at 100 yards. Even optics are reasonable and the CVA's come with a scope mount on the rifle (check the mount screws and retorque). I use a Nikon Realtree 6-9, 300 bucks all day, any day.
