    Has anyone used the savage screw on barrel system to build a 6mm br? If so, is it easy? Provide an accurate gun? What barrel did you use and what do you suggest. Thinking about a 6mmbr with a PacNor Pre fit barrel. Thanks.

    All of my custom rifles are built on savage actions. They all shoot much better than me. My 22 BR would shoot 2 inch groups at 500 yards when the shooter and the elements were right. All my custom savages shoot very well. I got a pre chambered barrel from pac-nor and had bad expercience with gunsmithing. First they threaded the wrong size threads, then I fixed that and the chamber was so tight you can't chamber brass. I am waiting to rechamber the barrel. They tried to make good on it and gave me $50 back for the threading mistake. From what I heard they are a good barrel for the money. The savage rifle system will shoot as good as anything out their, and their are many quality stocks triggers and other accessorys. I would have a local smith chamber a barrel for you or get a noted gunsmith like kirby allen to do it. I tried every savage gunsmith in the country to chamber barrels for me with less than favorable results from them. Get a good smith to do it for you and don't look back. Thanks Reed
