I had about the same problem with my stock savage.when you pushed a saboted bullet down the barrel it sounded like a zipper,and you could feel it ripping the sabot.Best I could get was like 3 inch groups.I bought a 45 cal pacnor barrl from Luke,and have never looked back.

There are several proven factory Savage barrels floating around now so finding another one won't be a huge deal if Savage won't replace it. Probly even be able to upgrade to a stainless barrel.

Did you call Savage and talk to them about it?

Hopefully Savage will make this right. Surly being a reputable company they will stand behind their product and insure customer satisfaction.

Mine too came with the socket instead of the tool to remove the breech plug. There were no screws where the scope mounts went. And my barrel was also dirty. Got we wondering now. I am still on vacation and won't get to shoot mine until next week. The only Savage rifle I owned before this was bought new and it had to go back to the factory because of problems with the hinged floor plate. But savage took care of it.

Can you define the socket vs. tool statement? I have a breech plug tool for my Savage but it's for the old style plug rather than the newer hex head plugs which I up graded to. So the new ones come with a 3/8" socket rather than a useless spanner socket tool?

And I would say that the reason the barrel is dirty is because they are all proof fired before leaving the factory.

The sight being slid all the way to the right is what tips it off for me.bought a lot of new rifles over the years but sights were always centered.too moch of a coincidence imo

I would check for a bent barrel. At Home depot, they sell .500 diameter aluminum rod that I use for a cooling rod. Buy one, roll it on something flat to confirm straightness, and see if it binds in your barrel. Second item would be is the scope mounted parallel with the bore. If it isn't noticeably off, then see if the clicks are centered left to right. In other words, turn the clicker clockwise and count the clicks until it Lightly stops at the end point. Return counterclockwise to your zero setting. Turn the clicker counterclockwise and count the clicks until it lightly stops at the end point. There will be a difference between the number of clicks in each direction. If it is excessively off to one side, something is wrong with the scope, rings, mount, or holes drilled in reciever.
