Savage 16 TH XP 300WSM NIKON
by Don D Date Added: Sunday 19 August, 2012
Overall... one of the best firearms I've fired. Smooth bolt, outstanding trigger, tight groups.

My issues are with the scope, and details. I started aiming at a broken clay pigeon at 75 yards, almost hit it second shot. And, this rifle felt "complete". Like I could keyhole shots all day long out of the box.

Partially my fault because of my inexperience with scopes. But, I could not get the windage in. Though the scope was extremely clear. The clicks were vague. I continued to hit the same spot regardless of adjustment. After a $40 box of ammo, I gave up. While waiting 20 minutes to speak to someone at Savage (and eventually hanging up unhappy with the lack of support)... I noticed the scope mounts were only finger tight. And the rear mount had worked loose almost an 1/8th of a turn. I would have expected the mounts on a magnum rifle to be tight. And, Savage's customer support to be better.

The rifle itself is incredible. And I paid it off on a saturday night, Bud's got it to my FFL tuesday morning. That's why I keep coming back to Bud's (just be aware...buying from Bud's can be addicting). overall... I WOULD recommend this rifle/caliber combo. Just check the mounts out before, and while you're shooting.
