I built this rifle while going to school at The Colorado School of Trades Gunsmithing School. Its a short action left hand Savage action, Krieger MTU contour 30" pipe 1:8" tw, Joel Russo Manners MCS T-2 stock, and on top is a Leupold VX-3 8.5-25x50. The reamer was throated for 105-107gr bullets and is a no turn neck. I pillar bedded the stock with devcon and aluminum pillars, and finished the stock with Tru Oil. I shoot Sierra 107 MatchKings with 30gr of Varget, Fed match primers, and Lapua cases. My best 5 shot group at 600y was 1.6" and best for 5 at 1000y was right around 5"! I absolutely love shooting this rifle!
Rifle DOES shoot just as good as it looks! I have shot this rifle and it is literally a point and shoot rifle. Almost takes the fun out of shooting, if that's even possible! Nice rig and glad I know someone that builds sweet rifles.
Guess it, shoot it. Holdover! Why dial it when you can just hold over?
