    Looks real nice, congrats. It seems everyone loves their Savages, so should be a shooter. Good luck.

    I HAD pictures of the range today, with some good video of me shooting a milk jug at 430 Yardsgun)

    When I was uploading the disc to the computer, I thought I had the files saved and then formated the disc. Well all was lost, I am going back out Friday and will be shooting better ammo. My own reloads!

    Today I shot about 45 rounds. Rem white and rem yellow with about five Win 180 soft point. I am not impressed with the accuracy of any of those listed.

    150 gr and 180 gr factory ammo. Would be good for hunting under 300 yards.

    Friday will tell the real story. 100 Yard zero and am going to try and learn how to mil with my scope.

    I've just up-graded my scope to a NightForce 5.5-22 X 50 MilRad using the MLR reticle - again "I Love It"

    You will find the 168Gn are good, but the 178 A-Max are better.

    Enjoy, CentreHit.

    CentreHit,
    What kind of accuracy are you getting with your rifle?

    With factory yellow box and white box Remington ammo i was able to hit milk jugs out to 430 yards.

    I was at the Las Cruces, NM range. I goes out to 1100m with targets at 100 yards, 200 yards, 300 yards, 600 meters, 800 meters, 900 meters, 1030 yards and 1100 meters. Why the distance are so up and down and in meters and yards doesn't make since to me. In the video I have targets at 100, 300, 600(656yds) and 800m. Some other gentlemen showed up and gave me some really good advice for getting on paper at 300yds and 656yds. Mils and MOA adjustments are new to me and I had to have the guys teach me a thing or two.
    Enjoy, more to come! Testing tomorrow again.
