NBT's and got around MOA groups using 46 gr. H4895 (cronographed 2910 fps). Altered stock but still didn't fit well.

I have heard people say negative things about savage. theirs have been my go to hunting rifles in my time of hunting and i have killed decent numbers with them. i have only had one savage i did not like and that was the MSR 10, that thing would not group better than a couple inches so i sold it. that and this last one i bought new where the bolt locked shut and i had to send it back.
