    Hey Folks,

    Havent hung out here in a while.
    I just finished my "Buget Savage" build

    Here we go:
    - Savage 10 action (Stevens 200)
    - Comp Recoil Lug
    - Choate Tactical stock
    - Shilen Select Match Barrel (.223wylde SS Varmint)
    - CDI Drop Mag System (AI mag)
    - Millett TRS-1
    - Tactical Bolt Knob
    - some krylon

    I know im forgetting some stuff here, but oh well. I will probably switch my scope to my new viper vortex 6.5-20x44. And add a kydex cheek rest, and some lower rings, but for now, i love it

    Was not sure how it would shoot. I had my first chance to go to the range with it on Thursday. First loads I worked up shot like a dream....

    I bet I can shrink them up once the barrel gets broken in and with playing around with my handloads.....

    very nice indeed! nice looking rifle and especially for a first build. groups are very good and i am sure that with a little fine tuning they will look like one ragged hole shortly. :D

    Good looking build.
    Are you still running the stock trigger? If so,change it out with a SSS competition trigger and your groups will really shrink.It's a drop in trigger that is very adjustable,and user friendly.

    If that trigger is too lite for you,they do make another model that is between 2-4lbs pull.
