3-1/2" is pretty bad, but make sure it's the gun before you go off on Savage.

^^Like he said, try at least a couple different types of ammo. You didn't say how many rounds you've ran through it, but it probably isn't even broken in after only one range session. Also re-check your scope & base and/or rings. If you have a torque driver, check the torque on the action screws. A lot of people have reported dialing in their accuracy by playing with the torque on these screws.

I agree with the others that the barrel should be floated right out of the box, but that's no guarantee of accuracy all by itself. Some guns actually lose accuracy when the barrel is floated.

I thought that was pretty good. Keep in mind that it was the 1st time out, one kind of ammo tried, scope hasn't been fine - tuned, I started and only shot at 200', (It was recommended that I dial it in at a closer distance), and my eyes really suck. (I have a specific problem, and the start of cataracts.) I was shooting at a piece of printer paper on which I had drawn a cross in blue sharpie - a thicker line than the marker draws, and I was having trouble seeing it thru the scope. AND, I had a huge brain fart. For some reason it never crossed my mind to FOCUS the scope! Now, on most of these things, I have no doubt I can improve that accuracy, and I have no doubt that the gun is capable of more; one of my groups was 1 1/4". I consider all of this to be irrelevant to a certain degree, anyway. Just coming from the angle of it's a new gun and shouldn't be like that, especially since I paid over $500 for it.

Under the circumstances it really wasn't bad. I only meant that the gun is capable of much better, once all the variables are accounted for.
