Fly Shooter

I have a target shot with a .223 11FHNS & a VX1 scope set on 6x.

I was goofing off at the range went 1-6 on flies at 100yard from a sand bag rest off the hood of my pickup truck. 55gr Sierra & range pick up brass fired out of a AR15. I won't try and tell you it was pure skill, probably mostly luck but I thought still kinda neat for a varmint barrel gun. The group at the top was just making empty brass, not a representation of actual accuracy.

All the Savage rifles I have seen shoot very well.

My custom rimfires

Up front is a MKIIBV, and behind is a 93 BTVSS .22WMR.
Both are set in Boyd's Evo SS stocks, with DIP trigger guards and heavy mag plates.
Scopes are a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14X40 on the 93, and a Bushnell 6-18X50 on the MKII. Both are mounted on DIP rails with Burris sig zee rings...

Here is my stainless-steel .243 Winchester, with 24" "magnum" weight barrel from the Savage custom shop.

I have added a new bolt handle from Brownells, and a Nikon 4-16x42 side-focus scope with BDC reticule.

( click image to see it larger )

It's favorite load:

70 grain Nosler ballistic tip
47 grain H4350
@ 3450 fps.

Here's a recent five-shot group at 100 yards.

It weighs ten pounds with the scope and would make a fair varminter - but I just shoot paper with it. Accurate enough to challenge you, and no noticeable recoil. Lots of fun for the whole family.

Every three rounds, a bore-snake wet with Hoppes #9 goes through it to clean and cool it.

That is my favorite and most accurate load in my .243, as well.

Here's my 325 Stevens .30-30.

I'm planning to loose the scope and set it up with peeps hopefully pretty soon.

just have to say, this, defcon, that is intimidating, and the fold up system is a great touch.

I really like mine. Savage 111 .30-06. Mine has the accutrigger which I love. I put Warne mounts and rings on it with a Weaver mildot scope. It really likes 150 grain Remington Core Lokt PSPs over 56-56.5 grains IMR 4350.
