Finally got my "new" Savage out to the range.
Weather was a comfortable 82 degrees with 0 wind. Only ranges close to me have a max distance of 100 yds. Shot 3 shots at 25yds, then headed over to the 100yd line.

Setup:
Savage 12 Long Range Precision
6.5 Creedmoor
Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 MIL/MIL
Harris BR Bipod
Rear Bag
Trigger pull weight is set at about 1.25 lbs.
Shooting factory Hornady 120gr and 140gr AMAX.





120 AMAX


140 AMAX


I did not do as well with the 140's as I did with the 120's, but I know the rifle is capable of better accuracy than I shot. Next up will be to try to stretch her legs a little and do some shooting at longer distances.

The rifle functioned flawlessly and was a joy to shoot. Very little recoil thanks to the heavy weight of the rifle. Overall, i'm pleased with the first outing.

I would expect it to tighten up some after you get it broken in.

Agree

Good shooting but most guns get better with time and shooting

That's my hope. Gun still has less than 50 rounds down the tube...

Thanks littlettam!

Bullfrog, you ain't lyin'! I was amazed at how well this rifle shoots. I know I'm not shooting it to its potential...
Will be handloading for it, soon as I get off my lazy butt and get some bullets, so I'm hoping I can get even better performance out of it...
