I picked up a 112 mag a few months ago. Just started getting serious with the handloads. I've got a bunch of H1000 and 300 grain OTM's.
I have to admit, it is really a fun gun to shoot! I swear I think my buddies little 243 kicks more than this ole' beast. :D
I've got about 75 rounds down the tube and it is a really fun rifle to shoot. And I have to agree, the brake is fantastic. I've been shooting the S&B 250 grain match ammo and it does surprisingly well. This was at 350 yards (due to the corn coming up around the house my "range" distance has...
I use the same load for 140 Berger VLD's, 140 AMAX and 140 Ballistic Tips in my 6.5 CM.
The Bergers are the most accurate and I prefer them for punching paper but I have a decent stockpile of BT's and AMAX. It was just curiosity on my part. I had worked up the load for the Bergers, then...

I hate it when they cover up the turrets with caps in the advertisements. I bought a Burris MTAC a few years ago and the turrets are about the size of a pencil and I have to take a microscope to the range to read the dials. Great scope, great glass, great CS, worthless turrets. :rolleyes:
I am seriously considering purchasing this rifle but I'm reading a lot of negative comments about bolt sticking with reloads in many Savage 338's, especially in the 110 series. Has Savage changed anything on the 112 in regard to bolt and chamber or are they the same as the other models?
Thanks as well. I have bubble levels on my rails but I think I'm going to go with the scope levels. I've always had problems "levelling" everything so now I go outside on the range and I hang a piece of cord with a weight (a plumb bob?) attached to it. I then turn the reticle until it matches...
