    Savage 260 AI:
    Savage Precision Target single shot right bolt/left port
    .473" bolt face
    Shilen stainless select match 26" 1 in 8 twist barrel, straight 1" contour
    Hs precision stock
    Warne 20 MOA picatinny base
    Duracoated in flat OD green
    Stockade bolt handle & lift kit installed

    This rifle will shoot 1/2moa easy and I have all of the load data to go along with it. It uses a nice combo of varget and 139gr scenar or 140vld both shoot awesome. It shoots fireformed loads at just over 2900fps with the 140 class bullets. I just shot this rifle out to 1200yards this weekend and man this thing is awesome. I would not be afraid to take a 1000yd shot at animal with this.

    Not included but available
    I have dies for this along with 60 fireformed lapua brass and 40 unfired ready to load. Even the fireforming load is about 1/2moa. The eagle stock pack is available to buyer for minimal cost.

    Not included
    scope or rings, bipod, rear shooting bag.

    Price is $1000+ shipping you can choose who and it will be actual price.

    What is the fire forming process you used? Have you used this on game or would you use this on white tail deer?
    Thanks

    to fireform I run 243 lapua brass throught the 260ai sizing die to get the neck the right size. then I run a standard 260 rem load through it. then I ream out the inside of the neck slighty (easy with sinclairs tool). then it is ready to fire full 260ai loads.

    you can skip the first sizing and inside neck reaming if you would like to just use standard 260 brass, but lapua doesn't make it and I almost soley use lapua brass.

    Its really not hard and I have some fireformed lapua 1x available to buyer/trader.

    hope this helps scott

    almost forgot I have not used it on game but I would for sure a berger 140vld at 2900fps still has 800ft/lbs of energy at 1000yds. way enough to put down a deer with good shot placement of course.
