I just bought my first long range gun. It is a Savage model 12 single shot in .300 wsm. I put an a 20x50 leupold that was collecting dust on it. I was extremely impressed with the range results. Consistent 1/2 inch at 100 yards sub one-inch groups at 200 yds with FACTORY AMMO!!!
Anyone have similar results with this rifle?

Brian, What does your uncle use for his 25-06 handload? My Sako is all over the place. The 100 grain boat tails seem to like my gun, but I haven't settled on anything yet. Thanks.

Did you have two 7 wsm's? What's the other one? So you have a 300 wsm and a 7 wsm?

no, first i bought the .300 wsm in the savage. A guy offered me good money for it so i sold it. Then I bought the winchester 7mm wsm. My collection of rifles consists of this, A browning low wall .243, A winchester 70 7mm WSM, an H&R .17 hmr, a remington .22, a marlin .22 and a kimber .22, not bad for a person my age
