Savage Models 12 and 112 Review

Having some of these rifles limited to one barrel and one cartridge didn't really make much sense.

Please correct me if I am errant but the three groups with the .22 PPC were .2872 MOA not .862 MOA average. They averaged .8616 inches at 300 yards.

Re: Savage Models 12 and 112 Review

great article,
now i want to start planing too build a switch barrel rifle like this. can you build one of these switch barrel rifles on a repeater action? do you need to use a savage action because of the barrel nut is on the out side of the barrel? if you don't use a savage with the nut on out side of barrel you have too pull the action out of the stock to change the barrel correct?
thanks

I found my action wrench at Brownells around 45 dollars. It works great the only problem that I am having is keeping the barrel nut locked down the jbweld dosent seem to want to hold. Anybody else do something different that will hold better.
