Savage are one of those companies that have figured out how to make stunning shooters for not a lot of cash and some people turn their nose up.

Go look through some 1000yd $1000 rifle videos on YouTube though, you’ll find savage rifles in many of the builds.

I bought a 10fp(?) in .308, threw it into an MDT chassis, put a Vortex crossfire and a second hand wildcat moddy on it, total price £1,040 and it’s like a laser cannon out to 400, not pushed it past that yet.

That’s four rounds in the target in the right from the savage. (The target company sent the wrong grade of steel)

I'm looking to get a K31 soon, and all I want to know is where you're finding that GP11? All I can find is the Privi stuff, which I'm not all that excited about...

Good afternoon all, I went to visit a mate this morning to talk about joining the club he's in and we got talking about different rifles/calibres and Howa's were mentioned, after a quick phone call, I was invited to go and see another shooter to have a look at his Howa, when I say Howa, I should say Howa's. My mate and I arrived at his pals house and were shocked to see 7 Howa's in different calibres on display for us to look at.
I have to say, I was very impressed, a few were in standard guise, the 7-08 was wearing a GRS stock and 2 were fitted with Manners stocks.
I have to admit, I think a Howa or two would suit me down to the ground, then we were shown some targets he'd shot, at various ranges, my mind was made up there and then, I want some Howa's and they fit into my financial bracket perfectly.

My trigger finger is twitching already.

the Prvi brass is very good for reloading, the GP11 I got from Ian at ITL shooting, he tends to buy batches in so sometimes he has it, sometimes not, I only use it for 1000yds so as to not have to work a load up for that range, although my normal reloads will work at 1000, its easier to use the GP11 as thats what the sights were calibrated for.
Although when in Switzerland the military subsidised GP11 is hard to refuse for any range (always 300m razz )

Well, there's certainly nothing wrong with Howa. Good choice.

Was the 100yd benchrest record not recently shot with a near stock Savage FTR?
