    Default Savage 10BA Stealth break in range trip

    Finally got to the range today to start breaking in the new Savage with a quick 100 yard visit to site things in and start the beginning of a new adventure. This rifle shoots amazing for as little as I have tied up in it.
    First shot through it was 8 1/2 inches high and left so I brought it down and right and a bit too right so the second shot was out to the right about 1 1/2 inches. Shots 3-10 were good to go as the wind was building from a steady 5mph to 10 with gusts of 15-18 from right to left (unusual for my range).



    Oh happy day for a 6 inch paste on target


    Just wait till next season!

    Nice shooting, i have some of the 185 grain Federal Gold Metal Match on the way from Vizards. My 308 has been neglected this year too with all the 6.8 shooting i've been doing, so i'm hoping to get her out next week and test out the new FGMM on the chrono.

    What ammo were you shooting? Mine really likes the 147 ELD.

    I shot the 120g GMX that Midway had a few months ago over Varget in my HMR and the results were not so good. I am going to work up a load with RL16 for those and see if I can get better groups

    I've got all my brasss necked and hopefully work some loads up tomorrow for Saturday. I have some 147 ELD and Sierra 142 with some H4350. I picked up some Nosler 123 ( I think) and might do some of them as well. Have to measure the chamber tomorrow as well since I got the gauge yesterday. You will like the Savage once you find the right load.

    What dis you think about that factory stock?

    What riser are you using with the butt stock? You stock looks like a Magpul ACS stock. I thought about using a ACS butt stock but never found a riser for it so install a CTR stock instead.

    I am swapping the CTR stock off of one of my MSRs for the ACS
