Great group with that one ammo.
Savages tend to be somwhat ammo sensitive. When you find the one ammo that shoots best in your rifle, and different rifles like different ammo's, you Savage will reward you with some of the best groups you will see.
Many matches are now being won with the Savage MKII rifles, especally when accurized.
My BRJ shot in the high .3"'s to low .4"s, 5 shots @ 50.
I took it to Savagegunsmithing and had an accuracy job done on it.
After accurizing, best Group 5 @ 50 was .117" and it shoots consistantly in the .1"'s when I do my part and the wind is not bad.
I know the gun shoots better than I do.
I'm just waiting for the **#* snow to go away so I can practice and try to get under .1". I know the rifle will do it, it shoots like it has eyes, better one's than me.
I changed the scope to a more powerful, expensive one with very thin wire retical. That should help. Also all new rests, shooting table etc.
Come on summer, I'm ready.
Bottom line, the Savage is by far the best rifle in it's price class. I've seen accurized CZ's and the accurized Savages outshoot them many, many times.
No always, but about 60% of the time and I'm taking about both rifles being accurized by the same master riflesmith.
