Ant one out there shoot savages? I have a model 111 30-06 and just picked up a model 12 long range precision in 22-250. Just wondering what to expect out of it. I think I got a good deal on it. It's got the heavy fluted stainless barrel, target crown, accutrigger, buckmasters 4x16 scope, Harris bipod. Out the door for 700. What you guys think? Personally I love the accuracy of the 06. It will shoot quarters at 100. But this new one. . . . . . Any thoughts?

Here is some photos of my 111 in 30-06 and my new 12 in 22-250






I could not pass up the 22-250. Heck I think the gun new was between 800-900 bucks, the scope was 300-400 new, bipod was 60-100 bucks. I travel for my job and happened to find this in W. Virginia. The had 740 on the sticker, I offered 700 and got it!!!!! If it shoots anything like the 111 does, I think I got a new yote rifle!

I got this gun at a pawn shop......traded a metal detector straight up for it. Had a redfield scope on it. So I swapped a 3x9x50 Leupold onto it......BEST DEER RIFLE.......EVER! 1 inch groups at 210 yards.

They are the best rifle for the money...The accutrigger is the best gun invention in the last 40 years in my opinion.

Sweet deal. Your salesman doesn't look too happy to be in a pic. I bet he was smiling after you left. LOL

While the model 12 you bought is on the higher end of their product line, even the model 10 and 110's with the accutrigger from Walmart can be real shooters.

If you handload or know someone who does, your model 12 will absolutley amaze you on neck sized/fire formed brass. Recently sighted in a friends Model 16 FSAK in .308 and it shot 1/8 moa at 100yds with handloads.

I would love to find someone to teach me to handload. I used to do shotgun shells with dad as a kid, but I have no equipment. I am really looking forward to see what it can do!
