wow sounds like a thumper,I bought solid steel weaver rings & hope they hold up,300g will be my max weight & wont be trying any max loads for the 300g.Im going to try to get accuracy in the 250g range,will shoot xtp's to start out with & will pu other powders besides the N110.Im afraid my smokeless adventure may start me loading centerfire rounds if Im not careful lol

You should be good I had a Nikon buckmasters on my savage for 6 years. When I first got it it had aluminum bases & rings & it toasted a scope but once I switched to steel I was good to go. Best of luck to ya smokeless is the only way to fly

Hay mike I wish you the best of luck with your new gun. I have everything ready to go with mine. I ordered 25 powder vials to for my charges and they came yesterday. Now here we are going on vacation and I can't shoot it till I get back. I am going to try ww209 primers will see how they work.

Mike they were on eBay they were listed under "blackthorn 209 powder vials" they look like little plastic test tubes with screw on lids. 25 off them were 11 dollars and change with free shipping.
I think they are going to work very well. If you don't have some type of powder scale I think that will be a must.

Mike I bought this digital scale. Its been accurate.had some pre measued charges measured out and took them and double checked them on a rcbs beam scale and it was reading the same.

thanks guys, shot it today before my scope got here about 5.busting the 3" circle at about 40y with the 240g,I have 5 of the 250 that came with the gun that im saving til I get the scope mounted , my scope is too short for my rings I bought so I reckon I will be buying a rail so I can adjust the scope properly, love the scope,5" of relief for the eye means no scope eye lol

I'm gonna wait a little longer to let the Savage roar, in hopes of cooler temps.

Mike, BTW those 240gr XTP's are better than most give them credit. They can be had at Walmart for less than 12 bucks for 20. They are 10gr lighter than the 250gr but have a thicker jacket and will hold together better. There is also a 44 cal 240gr with a green sabot that people get them confused with.

Mike it blows my mind we got our guns from the same store with-in a day of each other. I started off having bad luck with mine, now it is shooting great and you are having to send yours back to the factory. I bet it will come back better than ever.

Good deal on the scale. What I think will happen is they will go over the rifle with a fine tooth comb and it will come back in A number one shape.
