Took the 308 out for a test drive this weekend. In less than optimal conditions (rain and wind) it shot just slightly larger than .5 moa.
3fingervic - I had to custom order the stock for my rifle too. Because they are Savage specialists, they had to custom make this one for my Remington. They charged $25 extra for it. After I received it, they told me that it would absolutely be the last stock they cut for a Remington. They pillar bedded the stock (which they do for all their stocks), but I did not have them skim coat it.
Quite frankly, my experience with SSS was disappointing - I will not be doing business with them again. When I placed my order they told me it would be 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. After eight weeks, I contacted them and they told me it would be a week or so more. After another week, they said it wasn't ready yet. I must say it was frustrating that I was having to contact them rather than the other way around. In the end, when it was finally delivered in 12 weeks, when I told them I was disappointed in the level of service I received and asked how they might compensate me for that, they essentially said that I should feel lucky that I got the stock and that I should be proud that I have the last Remington they will cut. Is that any way to treat a customer?
Further, I asked them to drill a 7/8"x5.25" hole in the butt stock in order to accomodate a recoil reducer. I've just discoverd that the hole in the stock is 3/4"x4.5". While they did not charge anything for this, it's not right. Given my previous experience with them, I'm not holding much hope that they will work with me in any way to make it right.
I have another rifle and I'm considering a laminated stock for it. If I go that direction, I'll be contacting Joel Russo.
