Is name is Savage,he's a model 11 .223 .
I hope we a several wonderful years together :machinegun:.
Nice... can't go wrong with a savage!
congrats, can't beat a Savage for out of box accuracy any where near the price range.
Congrats, looks very nice !!
Is it theTrophy Hunter, accu-trigger, Nikon scope/
I love Savage rifles.
Yeah it's the Trophy Hunter.
They are really nice,
Same one I got ,still havent sighted it in yet.
Let us know how she shoots.
Oh I will.I'll have to try the factory ammo first.I have to tear apart some reloads before I can work up loads for this one (no extra brass ) so it might be awhile before I get to that.
Its a 1/9 twist so it will like the slightly heavier bullets, but its good for 55 to 68 grains
The 1/9 ARs I have owned liked the 62gr the best if I recall correctly
All I have at the moment is 50g Vmax,would they be too light to shoot right???
You should be good,
I have shot 50 grn, 52 grn and 53 grn out of 1:9 twist, with good results.
My best accuracy has been with 55 grn,
Bhale is right about the 55-62 grn beingthe best with 1:9 twist.
But 50 gr up to 68 grn will do fine.
Im thinking of getting a .223 rifle with 1:7 twist to shoot 70 to 80 grn.
50 gr. is generally fine for the 1:9, my AR just LOVES 50 gr. Blitzkings...
Side note, heavier might be a little better though. The 60 gr. Hornady hollowpoint hits a little harder. Around here the coyotes seem to absorb hits from the .223 and keep going until they get into cover before they die. I actually prefer the 25/06 for dropping them on the spot, but the dogs are so skittish that running shots are the norm so ARs and Mini-14s get the nod over bolt guns.
I hope so,I just bought 200 of the 50g because they shoot great in the Contender.I'll try them and if for some reason I'm not happy,I know where I can get some 55g Vmax.
Just got sighting it in most of the way,with the factory 55g FMJ practice loads.The 2 lower right were the first 2.I moved it up and left a couple times and it's still a little right,but it's good enough for a start.After I get the loads worked up I'll finish sighting it in.Hopefully the reloads group better,they did in my G2 Contender a lot better than the factory ones.
Also I was just leaning it up against a tree,not using my rest .
Not bad, a little more tweekin,
it will be there,
unless the tree is swaying in the wind.:cheesy::cryinglaugh:
Working up the loads,had to do a little scope adjusting but I'm happy with it.I may someday try a little heavier bullet and see what happens.If I can find some that is .This was 30 shots.
Looks like every shot would be a kill.
Very nice shooting !
Looks like that will do the trick
Nice rifle squirrel hunter. Love the camo.
