Today was my 2nd time shooting my new to me Savage.
After some tweaking of the scope I was able to shoot this 3-shot group.
300gr hornady hp orange mmp sabot and 60gr N-120.
Needless to say I am impressed with this 100yd group. These were my 14,15,&16th shots ever with this gun which includes sighting in new scope.

Those Hornaday #4500's have shot well out of every 10ML I've tried them in. You won't need a blood trail with that load. They expand well on deer sized game too, and you can eat right up to the hole. If you get a chance, try the Speer #2482. It looks virtually identical to the #4500's but the jacket is bonded and will stay together better. The cost is comparable.
