Most Savage bolt actions are very accurate right out of the box. The .243 is an inheritantly accurate round. You should be able to get tighter groups even off handed. With any kind of a steady rest you should at least be able to get 1 to 11/2" groups at 100 yds. Try some different ammo brands to see what your rifle likes. Or better yet, handloads.
I'm getting started in to reloading and all I payed was a 180 bucks from midway USA and I got the 50th anniversary kit for 109.99 then I got the Lee pracesetter dies for 27 something and a set if frankford calipers for 18 something
Check it out its a great deal for everything u get p.s. the brown book did not come with the kit
