Just thought I'd share. First picture is of a brand new unfired Savage 12 LRP. Second picture is of a brand new unfired Tikka T3 HB Varmint (my t3 lite looks the same btw). We all know tikka has excellent barrels but damn, for a grand you'd expect better on a savage. No amount of "break in" or dyna bore coat is going to fix that savage. It was returned. The other 12 LRP in stock has the same barrel issues btw and worse crown damage.
