well i finally got out this weekend and shot my new savage. I half ass broke it in: 10 shots cleaning after each one, and then i said f it and shot for group. I broke it in with really cheap 55gr fiococchi that shot like crap. But then i shot 20 of the rounds i had worked up. I was using remington cases, mag tech 7.5 primers 70 gr berger BTHP match bullets and Varget powder COL 2.235. Started with 23.4 gr of varget and worked up to 25gr.
First 3 groups measured about an inch to 1.5 moa, but the last group i shot was with a 25gr charge and it sucked all the shots in to just under .5 easily covered by a dime!!!!!!! I was pretty excited. First time i ever shot the rifle, and the absolute first ammunition i have ever made........... .5 moa
