    Im working on the exact same rifle for myself right now. savage model 10 predator Max 1 in 6.5 creedmoor also left handed. Did you bed the action or the scope base? I was goin to bed the action but figured I would see how it shot first. And I will be bedding the scope base. Also any plans for any upgrades?

    I am going to take it out this weekend and see how it shoots I might need a bad job cuz the recoil lug channel is huge on this stock the original accuastock had a nice tight channel for it! But not really to much was going to get it threaded for a suppressor and do some loading that's about it ill let u know how it shoots this weekend!!! Trying out the 120 gr amax match rounds so we will see how that goes.

    120grain bullet? Are you going to be holding your shots inside 400? If you plan to shoot past 400, look at the 140 class bullets.

    OK, just curious, a lot of times the first round will fly off a bit then, the barrel gets "fowled" and brings the following shots all into a closer group.
