Savage Semi-Custom 243

Testing the waters here.... I have a .243 built on a Savage 10 action (small shank) that was a new take-off. Barrel is Criterion, Light Varmint, 24" stainless, 1:10 twist, accu-trigger. Have the beefy criterion recoil lug, and stainless criterion barrel nut. Stock is a bell and carlson M40 that was purchased new. Action has been bedded by yours truly. Includes factory bottom metal and the good quality savage factory metal DBM, not the cheapie plastic savage DBM. Rifle has been to the range twice, second time was shooting reloads @ 7/8" five shots with first load trial. Total round count is 80, everything is pretty much brand spankin' new on it. I need to free up some funds for a different build.

$1,050 OBO


Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
