It a little too late to talk me out of buying it seeing how it is sitting on the counter. BUT I would like to have some idea what type accuracy I can expect. We can by-pass the "save your pennies and get a real barrel"...I know full well this barrel is for budget builds. That said I have two custom builds (for me they are) one has a Douglas barrel, the other a ER Shaw. The later is the reason I pulled the trigger on one of these kits. I know most of you guys have seen my 300wm target shot with my ER Shaw barrel...for me it is pretty impressive. So I wont bore you guys with it again! LOL Any way the Douglas barrel has been a little bit of a disappointment. It shoots good. 400 yard 12" steel is a guaranteed hit. But it takes all day to clean after 30 to 40 shots. Any way...I have been trying to find reviews good or bad but have mostly found threads from 2011...I think the most recent was 2015. Never did find one where the barrel wouldn't shoot. But there were complaints about the condition of the bore. They were in shock that the barrel shot very very well. Any of you guys go slumming and buy one of these kits? I don't have a bore scope but it looks great so far on the outside. Caliber: I kicked around another thread the 6.5-06 or 6.5x284 and ended up going 264wm. On paper it would be the cheapest build I could do. There are not any kits in 6.5-06...dies loaded ammo and brass were all more in the end even though I had to buy brass and dies for both 6.5x284 and 264wm. Parts were cheaper going 264wm. I will post pics as I go putting it together. I'm not sure if blueprinting the receiver is necessary but I'm kicking around the idea of doing it. One thing I really like about Savage, what ever things I find not to my liking I can pull it apart and put it back together. I know Savage Shooter would be a better forum for this, but I don't find those guys to be as courteous as you guys have been. If your not in there click info doesn't flow as easily as it does here. Ok...need some reviews!
