I found the Nosler 140 gr. BT over 56.5 gr. of H 4831 SC to be very accurate out of my Savage. I tried several different bullets, powders, charges, and lengths and this worked for me. I did have some good groups with Hornady 130's and Reloader 15, but got my best results using the 140 BT / 4831 load. I walked over 20 miles checking groups during my experimenting with loads for this rifle over the summer.
