Savage 308 24 5R THREAD BL
by Matt R Date Added: Sunday 25 March, 2012
5R Barrel is very nice, Cleans nice and easy. Best thing about a savage is that is has a short throat, You can load to magazine depth and be really close to the lands, Nice snug chamber too (recommend forster BR FL die). Replaced the bolt handle with the SSS handle from Tacticalworks.com which is highly recommended.

Stock is very skinny and a horrible design for a rifle intended for long range prone type shooting. Gave it away and ordered a custom A5 from McMillan. Bolt release is on the trigger guard and is 4.4 spacing so you'll have to get a custom stock made for this design. Recommend XLR chassis, McMillan or Manners.

Highly recommended for the 11.25 twist and 5R barrel, Plus the savage action is really smooth.
With the A5 stock it is as accurate as my 700 with a custom barrel.

Savage is killer imho, Ability to change bolt handles and barrels without a 3-6+ month gunsmith wait time makes a savage a standard must have for any precision shooters collection.

Thanks Bud's.
