    Savage customer service

    Thanks that is encouraging. My experience with gun companies CS is limited thankfully. I had great service from STI and Ruger. I know from working at a big box store gun dealer for a short time that Taurus is the worst. My first Savage was a special order that took almost a year but after...

    Savage customer service

    Anyone ever dealt with them? What was your experience? I am wondering while my rifle goes back to the factory to be fixed.

    Satisfied Savage owners - speak out!

    Just bought my 3rd Savage and it was a lemon. My first an LRP .260rem is a tack driving, bug hole shooting, precision rifle. My second is a 93R17GV that is rediculously accurate so much so that my 7yr old step-son can hit empty shotgun shells at 100yds with ease. The most recent is a 10 Predator...

    .260 load data with berger bullets?

    41.5gr H4350 in a 7mm-08 win case necked down and a 140gr VLD. The problem was the SMKs grouped better and were faster so I quit using the VLDs

    Calling on you 30-06 guys for loads

    My dad is wanting me to load for his 06 and being a 6.5mm guy I am just wanting some info on where to start. Specifically what is your favorite powder and bullet in the 168gr-180gr range. He mostly uses his Win model 70 for deer hunting but I will be bringing him along on some long range...

If I do not hear from them tomorrow I will never buy another Winchester product. I buy cases of Winchester shotshells and I buy some Winchester brass. I guess they want...

    My Savage LRP in .260 hates the 140 VLDs at the lands. I found .020 works for me.
