First target



2nd target I decided to try a 5 shot group of 150 nosler ballistic tips, they weren't as tight as the AMaxes but were not even loaded to the barrel, still not bad though



You should be very happy with that. Tell me exactly how you measure groups. I've never measured any of mine except to put a ruler on them from edge to edge.

Clark, I measure with digital calipers to the outside of the group, then subtract the diameter of the bullet to get center to center of group. I try to get the edges as close as possible and not do any cheating to make it look better. If you measure outside of holes you are not getting the true center impact of the bullets, that's why you subtract the diameter.


If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

Fine rifle! One day I will have a long action .308.

I don't know why it takes you to a blank page works fine for me. Copy this link and paste it to your address bar.

First - Nice shooting. And nice build.

Did it only take you about a week to get the Shilen for it and did it come threaded and chambered? I'm am about to order a couple new barrels.

BTW - Squaring the bolt and action is about a waste of time on a Savage because they have a floating bolt head. If you were serious competition you could maybe do some timing and a little work, but for anything short of that you don't need it as evidenced by the groups in this post. That's why i build on a Savage, to save money or machining, easy barrel changes, etc. It has it's advantages. Not in love with Savage myself but pretty cost effective to have a stack of barrels as big as a school bus in lieu of a stack of custom rifles. I don't like being married if even not permanently to one caliber and you can swap on a Savage like changing underwear after you've done it a few times.

When you move to the next revolution in a match and you don't return to zero it's hard to see your hits when they are 6ft over the target ymmv

Goat killer, I ordered that barrel from midway, they had it in stock. I've only put about 25 down it so far and probably gonna do some more today.

Updating the savage build, this rifle shoots, but I'm wanting to step it up to the next level, so I'm going to have it rechambered to a 300wsm to shoot the heavier 225gr ELD match bullets. Also I will use it to hunt with on some of the longer shots I may encounter. Planning on shooting either the 200 gr sierra or the 212gr Eld x.
