    I like the looks of this gun. I hope to break it in on a spring Black Bear.

    It was painted by Bell and Carlson. Green w/ Black Spiderweb. I hate plastic stocks. I might make a doorstop or something out of the take-off Savage stock.

    BB that looks very nice! What bullet are you thinking of using in it or trying? The 160 gr. Accbond should be a good one with a high BC, but then I'm kind of a Nosler snob and really like them. My dad had good luck with his 7mm and he's only used one bullet in it since he got the thing and that's a 160 gr. Partition. He uses 4831 and CCI250 primers. Chronographed it for him once many moons ago and it's going 3070 fps form a Winchester Model 70 push feed from about 1973. It does shoot well.

    Good luck with load work. The Savage' rifles seem to shoot!

    David,

    I will be trying the 160 accubond first. My other preferred bullets will be the 168 Barnes LRX and 168 Berger VLD hunting. When I get it dialed in, I will have to grab my hunting partner and we will meet you at the range.

    Beautiful rifle! Excited to hear how it shoots. Let me know how the 168 berger shoots for you. I had a horrible time getting that round to group for me. Ended up going to a swift sirroco! Congrats on the gun!

    Great looking gun BB. Im shooting 180 grain accubonds out of my 30-338 at 3040fps and love them. Did a heck of a job on my bull last year. But im a Nosler snob to.
