what combo is shooting well @ 100 yards? Reload, handload, powder, projectile etc.

Is your Savage new or broken in?

Sites? I assume scope, what kind.

Spread? The group opens up? How much?

Great success? Size of groups? What's acceptable to you.

How many shots fired per group?


Do you feel the rifle can shoot better than your capabilities. (I know my .308 can with me:) )

Hi Savage 10fp, Are You Shooting 5 Or 10 Shot Groups At 100 Yards? With My Savage 12bvss 223 I Can Put 10 Shots Down At 100 Yards And The Group Is Just Under The 3/4 Size On Paper. The Savage Tactical And The Bvss Have The Same 1 In 9 Barrel Twist. So Tell Us Your Reloading Recipes.and I Might Be Able To Help You Out.

My Groups Are 10 Shots Savage10fp. Any How The Both Of Us Out Shot That Ruger 1 In 9 Twist Special Rifle. When I Shot Out To 300 Yards On Sunday My Group Was Under 2 1/2 Inchs, The Ruger Vt Shot 3 1/2 But The Ower Tried To Tell Me 2 1/2 But I Am Not Blind. Mine Was Much Tighter.
