It's a good scope, I have one on another rifle. As is, get a 100yd zero and you are good to go for 600yds.

Nix the idea of slapping a Pac Nor barrel on. At least until they get up and ruining after the fire. Figure at least a few years (assuming it happens at all.)

I took Randall's advice and got Remington's 5r Milspec (29663) in .308 with the stainless 24" barrel. I replaced the trigger with a Timney, and got a screaming deal on a 5-25 ATACR (SFP). I'm going to take a class and start reloading for precision and I'll let you know.

These threads are funny. Thirty-seven some odd different opinions in the span of a day or two. LOL!

Truth is for the VAST % of all of us, it simply doesn’t matter what rifle you start with. Whether a Remington, Winchester, Savage, Tikka, Howa..One of the quality smaller companies or Custom Actions...They can all be a quality distance shooter. A quality rifle off the shelf with some trigger work, decent optic & hand loads will get you a UNDER 800yds no problem. When talking about 1000yds or even greater, things like 20” barrels, and using 308, are already a handicap.

Serious consideration of extended ranges, you should be thinking 6.5mm, 24/26” or greater length barrel & reloading.

What package you do it in is a question of personal preference and budget.

I have always been a Savage enthusiast. I chose to pick up a used 10 Action for next to nothing, stripper it down for the old “home” blueprinting, then did a complete build in 6.5-08. Stuck it in the Chassis I liked with my own custom made butt stock, and topped with Athlon Glass.

Not others cup o’ tea, and that’s fine. But I do what I like & can afford. Is it a really good shooting rifle? Yup! Not best ever, of course not..but it’s a far cry more accurate than I am! (Or anyone else here!)

So what exactly are you saying here hoback? Your savage rifle is more accurate than anyone here can shoot?

Well, I have agree with him that in general, production rifles are more accurate that most of the people shooting them. : )
