Well it's finally complete! This rifle is a Savage model 12 FVSS 270 WSM. I worked it over as I had time and money. First the plastic stock left and a B&C Medalist went on. Then I bedded it twice, kinda unsuccessfully. Then this spring I tore it all down, chipped out the Devcon and started over. I re-crowned the barrel and trued up the nut and action, installed a SSS recoil lug and set it up to minimum head space. Trigger is an Accutrigger that has been tweeked, and I got a super good stress free Devcon bed job and bedded the rail on the action and mounted a 4-14 WOTAC Gen 5 scope in Weaver tac rings, leveled and check click value. Then the last thing I did was sand blast and used flat black Aluma-Hyde on all the metal except the flutes.
I've got it to the range once since finishing and it shot just under MOA to 1015 yrds and it was super consistent with zero wandering or funky stuff!! I can dial exactly what Loadbase tells me and make solid hits.
Load is 140 Berger with 71 gr of Retumbo lit by Fed 215's going 3307 FPS.
The next phase will be a new barrel for heavy 270 bullets giving me the best of shooting light and fast and shooting high BC long range monsters in the same gun!
