Cabelas and Savage Sale
« on: September 10, 2017, 01:10:14 PM »
Trying to pass on a great deal here to hunt wa.

Cabelas has a sale on the Savage 12FV and Savage has a $100 rebate on them.
After all said and done, you have a nice rifle for $250 tax included.
Bull Barrel, accu trigger. Stock is a bit flimsy and it has an internal mag, other than that rifle shoots lights out. I bought the 223 version couple years ago, my brother shot a .4 MOA group at 100 with it.
Most of them are sold out at the store, but can be ordered.

I've bought 3 of these 12FV's from Cabelas in the past year all on sale for less than $400 bucks.  This sale is ridiculous.  I'll post targets from just how good these guns shoot.

Here are a couple targets from the range Friday night from savage 12fv rifles.  One in 223 REM the other in 6.5CM. Note the 1 hole group at 200 yards. And the CM is very consistent. Steady half Moa shooter with low ES. 

not bad for $350 rifles huh?

Bang for buck is definitely there.
Now should I go 6.5 or 308?

for that price I'd go both.  I also picked up a .308 but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.  My buddy bought one and first three shots with 178 ELD-X went into a bug hole at 200 yards.

Called Cabela's yesterday, fellow said the 6.5 Creedmore's were about a month out on backorder.

Looking at the sale ad, I noticed that is the only one that doesn't say it has a varmint weight barrel or the Accutrigger.

For those who have one, is this correct or just a typo?

Thinking about heading there are ordering one this afternoon...okay...maybe two!!! 

:chuckle:


Which other caliber would you get in addition to the 6.5 if you were inclined to pick-up two?

I would assume that's a typo, 12FV should all be the same, but never hurts to verify.
In addition to 6.5, I'd do a 223 and 308.
I have the 223, and want 6.5 and 308. LOL.

The 6.5CM has a 26" varmint profile with a 8 twist.

I also suggest the .308 and the .223.

The 22-250 only has a 1:12 twist which to me doesn't make much sense.  If it had a 7 twist I'd be all over it.

Thanks for the info. 

Ordered a 6.5 Creedmore, gun counter fellow said he was certain it was a typo, as the web page builder they use "Isn't very good!"    :DOH:

Worse case he said was, when it shows up, if it doesn't have the Accutrigger or varmint barrel, I don't have to accept it and there would be no restocking fee.  We shall see I guess.

Now the waiting begins.  Yesterday, was told to expect just short of a month for delivery, today, different fellow says next week...  :chuckle:

Yesterday, when I spoke with them, the fellow said that they had almost 150 6.5 CM and about 80 .308's on backorder st thst time.  His best guess was 3-4 weeks.

The fellow today said it would be there next week...so I guess time will tell which one knew what he was talking about.

It doesn't matter if it's a couple weeks to me.  Do these qualify for the  $100 visa card?  Looks like it says the 12 fcv qualifies not the 12 fv.

Again, based on my phone calls both today and yesterday, they both said it did.  The fellow today said that in addition to that, those that qualify for their veteran's discount program practically made it as if they were paying us to take one of the rifles.

took the 12FV 6.5CM to the range against last night.  It's riding in a McMillan HTG stock now outfitted with savage bottom metal and DBM.  The 42.0 grains of H4350 load is the winner.  It put 5 shots in less than an inch at 200 yards.  Avg MV of 2760 with that load.  I'll be taking this gun to Montana for deer and antelope next month.

I don't know that it matters on the break in really. But because I'm a creature of habit I follow the same procedure on all my barrels factory or custom. Shoot one, clean one for first 5 shots; shoot 5 and clean for next 20 shots. 

My buddy who has the same rifle didn't follow any procedure. They both still shoot.

It's still available online:

http://www.cabelas.com/product/SAVAGE-FV-VARMINT-RIFLE/1994604.uts

Better hurry and order one. They all say "limited stock."

I'd get one but already have enough rifles. All I need is a new rifle for my kids but this one is too heavy.

Ordered one up in 6.5 Creedmoor. It's destined to become a chassis rifle in time. For 250 bucks why would you not get one? How do you go about finding out when it will come to the store?
