First time shooting it. After 2 rounds of leftover n110, I loaded it with 56gr H4198 HLBC, winchester primer (leftovers), XTP at 50 yards I am well pleased.

Just wanting to shoot and see if I had some consistency before I put my savage up for sale.

Below is shot 3 and 4.


below if you look closely you will notice shot 5 in there. 3 shots in 2 holes, I am tickled. I realize its only 50 yards, but I'll back it up soon.


2 of the 3 shots was shot by TN.Larry.... Our rest was a round hay bale.

Results look promising so far. Hopefully, it will hold up when the temps go down and the powder charge goes up a little. Promising start and a darn sweet gun as well!

Hows the loading pressure? Barrel seem to be on the loose side or pretty tight?

Actually it was VERY easy to load, which made me a little nervous before I shot it. I was thinking immediately they would probably need to be knurled.

I still have to bump up to 60gr H4198, and change bullets.

I know the action is extremely tight, not sure how that plans in accuracy. I thought about lubing the pivot pin a little, but havent researched it yet.

it needs to be tight. No need to lube anything other than maybe the inside walls of the frame.

It's definitely not hard to load. It doesn't fly down with super ease but definitely easier than my Encore conversion. Time will tell in October when the temps get cooler and the powder goes up. I don't expect it to shoot that good but believe that it will be just fine though.
