    Savage Stevens 200

    Picked up a Stevens 200 Action a while back. I got two barrels with it (7mm-08 and .243 Win). Painted up the stock and dropped in Timney trigger and removed all over travel and have it breaking crisply at 2lbs.

    Loaded up for 7mm-08, 139 gr Vmax, using IMR-3031 at 39gr.

    Shooting at 125yds

    I got the groups okay, but seems each group has a flyer....sigh. Still within an inch at 125 yards.

    My bud's Model 200 really likes 40. grns of H335 with the same bullet. Shoots almost 1/2 MOA @ 100 yrds.

    Which shot is the flier? I have an old rifle that will print the first two shots super tight and the third tends to get a little funky. Let the barrel cool about 5-10 minute and it goes right back to shooting two great and a flier.

    For the money the Stevens 200 is one heck of a buy I've been wanting a 110 reciever for a build ( thinking 220 swift krieger barrel for sure ) for a while but most have been IMO overpriced so I may pick up one of these instead.
