I just purchased a savage 10 BAS, anyone found a good load for it? I am shooting 175 SMk's w/ 41.5 grns 4064, at FGMM lenghts. So far 1 inch at 200 yds. (fist 20 rds break in). Anyone experienced on this beast?
I would think that it will shoot better, once I get 200-500 down the tube. Also have not done the final load developement on this one. Just dissassembled, retorqed, greased trigger group/ bolt, and go. I am aware of the 1/2 moa. Why settle for 1/2? I want consistant 1/2 groups at 200. (*then I know it's me that misses, not the equipment-- of course I am usually the cause anyway;-)
Well, I was standing, shooting over my truck bed tool box, off sand bags. I was actually very impressed during this break in. I am used to shooting 40x's (have 4 and decided I am selling them) I own 2 savages and both shoot as good as the remingtons, for my efforts. I guess, the base load seems to work very well. (mentioned above) OAL 2.08 by the way. WLR primers. (federal 210 matches if you can find them) Anyone else have one of these?
My other savage is the 10 fp mcmillian. 50 rounds and .375 groups at 100 yds. no load development yet. I guess I just want to get a nice shooting piece, then get it coated for "work". the BAS is just for "newbe" show. very good pr value. rocky

And you shoot 1" groups at 200yds like that, really?
Happy to school you any time your in Missouri. Always looking to educate a fellow shooter. I typically fire 400-500 rounds a week. so, I'm usually available for lessons. remember, it aint bragging if you can do it. got any money?
