my new toy

just started working up loads on my new savage and she's showin some great potential right off the bat. this rig consists of a savage 112 fv long action trued by non other than jim caudil of sunbury ohio.a 1.200" non tapered 1960's era sako blank chambered in 30-06 springfield,also machined and headspaced by jim.dropped in a fully bedded choate varmint stock i custom painted. first time to the range netted some respectible 5 shot groups in the .330 range. it will only get better with more load work. i'm very pleased with mr. caudil's work and will be sending more guns his way.

Re: my new toy

had some good range time today with the new rig and she shot really well. 55 grns of 4350 and 155 smk gave me groups that averaged .350 at 200 yds.i'm sure that more range time will only get better.

Re: my new toy

I love that barrel contour it looks sweet. The paint job looks good too but those groups sound amazing to me. How do you like the stock? I was thinking about getting one to replace the crapperware stock on my savage.

Re: my new toy

stock feels great for prone shooting, but not the best for bench. it still gets the job done. i personally think this stock is a better choice over the new tactical model. i had the tactical and it wasn't near as stiff and accurate as this one. you have to do a full bedding job though to get the full accuracy potential this stock has.i'm loving the contour of this barrel too,it never gets hot and gets alot of looks at the range.i'm saving for a manners t5 stock but the choate is working fine for now. also going to buy some glass with more magnification as 16x isn't cutting it at 1000 yrds.
