Okay,
So I'm not one to jump on the bandwagon of the "latest and greatest" thing, but I just a bought a Savage Model 10 with heavy fluted barrel and it's the most accurate rifle I've ever fired. WOW...I'm a good shot(but not a great shot)...better than average at normal hunting ranges (inside 400 yds), . I don't get to shoot much beyond that because there is just no easy access for me to do so. This gun makes me look better than I am. I have added 2 links to pics of some of the 4 shot groups I fired with the first 50 rounds. The second link is a pic of 2 200yd groups I shot late in the day with the light getting low. I feel the rifle is capable of cutting the best group size in half. I know to most this is not all that impressive, but I'm pretty darn happy with it.

I'm looking forward to stretching it out a little in the near future. 600 yds would be the max range I have access to, but I think I'll give it a try.

Re: Savage Model 10 - 6.5 Creedmoor...WOW!

Mine's still bone stock with the brush camo on the AccuStock. I have had it less than 2 weeks, so not much to look at. It's just got a 4.5-14 X 40 Leupold VX III CDS on it. Nothing fancy in the glass department, but all I plan to do with it is hunt and punch paper at hunting distances...maybe a little further. I think what I have will work for that.

OBX...If that is a Vortex Viper PST I have that same scope I could put on it if I plan to go that direction in the future. Right now it's on my Steyr SSG 04.

Nice rig by the way.

It could use an adjustable cheek piece for better cheek weld. The scope sits really low I can barely fit a quarter between sunshade and barrel. The bolt comes really close to the scope. Idrather have a higher set of rings and a cheekpiece so they aren't so close.

It almost seems like Savage is the only factory gun that is striving to do better.While the rest of the factory guns are trying to live on the reputation they made years ago.And I don`t even own one yet.As for the caliber the 6.5 Creedmoor shoots amazing.It will make a bad shooter look good.I love mine enough that I told my wife and son to send it with me when I am called up.Nice shoting!

I picked up a 12 LRP in 6.5 Creedmoor. It prints 4 shots under 1/2 MOA at 100 yards with 120 grain A-Max factory ammo. Hope you're liking yours as much as I like mine !
