I've had decent accuracy out of a model 10fp I owned in .223. The second Savage I owned was a 12 VSS that I sold because it would string the shots. I was very disappointed in this rifle for the price.
111 Long Range Hunter
I m picking up a 111 long range hunter in 300 win mag on saturday. I have a couple of other savages and they all shoot great. I hope this shoots just as good. Anyone that has shot one please let me know your thoughts on this rifle. Thanks
As for the rifle I'm sure it'll put up 1/2 MOA with certain loads.
At the moment, I'm struggling between a Savage in .260 Rem or a CZ or Sako in 6.5x55 SE. Once I decide, I'll be getting good brass and rolling my own. Sunray's advice is good. Were I you, I would study one of Zak Smith's articles discussing the .260, the 6.5 Creedmore, the 6.5 Grendel and the 6.5-.284. That may help decide the caliber choice.
Like I said, Lapua 260 brass will soon be on the market. And in spite of what most people say I've have really good results with Remington 260 brass.
A CZ 550 with a Kevlar stock in 6.5x55 would be an awesome long range hunting rifle.
Here's what I got this morning. I have a feeling it would have put a 5th round right in there too but those were the last of the day.
40 grains of H4350.
Pretty light load but very accurate in my rifle.
Going to guess that wasn't Long Range Hunting.com!
I'd look into the 260 Rem too. I may just rebarrel my Savage 10 to that...next time.
