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?

You will get an email when the rifle arrives at the store but wait until they call you before you drive down to pick it up. There is a lag between the email and when they receive it into store inventory. If you assume it's ready for pick up just because you received an email you may make a trip for nothing. Don't ask me how I know. Wait for the phone call.

Oh and by the way, I took the 6.5CM out to 600 yards last night. It held a half minute 3 shot group and kept the single digit ES. So I'm convinced that the Savage 12FV is the best deal going in the firearms industry.

 :chuckle: I'm 3 hours away from the store so you can be sure there will be a phone call made to ensure its there. I have a savage fluted lr 6.5 x 284 that shoots lights out so this was an easy sell on me. That's cool to hear yours is a shooter, how did it shoot bone stock before the McMillian upgrade? Do these have the target version of the accutrigger that adjusts down below 2lbs or the 2.5lb+ version? What bullet are you loading for it?

 Anybody have any experience with the different chassis out there that wont break the bank? Like the looks of the MPA BA lite or MDT ESS but have never seen or held them.

The rifle shot very well bone stock. During barrel break-in it was in the original plastic stock. It's pillar bedded from the factory so it's a good platform. I used a mild load of 38.0 grains of 4350 during break-in. It put every round during the 25 round process into 1.5 inches at 200 yards. 

As for the trigger it is not the varmint version which has a 1.5 pound lower end.

I'm shooting berger 140 VLD for now. Will play with the 130 AR hybrids and maybe 143 ELD-X this winter. I like a bullet that dumps it's energy payload into the target so for now sticking with the berger.

Just got the email saying the .223 I ordered on 9/20 is in and ready for pick-up, was initally scheduled to be there 10/2...so, not too bad!

On the other hand, the 6.5 CM I ordered on 9/11 is still "in process" status. 

Was told they are expecting a large shipment in close to the end of October, maybe mine will be one of those.

Back to full regular price of $419 when I looked earlier.  Rebate still active though.

Sale ended on 9/20 for the 12FV.

Rebate is still good on ones purchased up to the end of the year, so even at $319.00 after the $100.00 rebate, that isn't too bad a price.

The order status on the 6.5 CM I ordered on 9/11 changed from "In process" to "shipped" today, and Cabela's also dinged my VISA, so it looks like they are clearing up the backorders.

I ordered on 9/20 and got a back order notice a couple of weeks ago. Scheduled to arrive late November.

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.

Try that same charge with 42gr RL-17 of and I bet you will have the same accuracy and you will gain a little over 100fps. Worked great for me in a 6.5 Creedmoor Howa Alpine and a Ruger American Predator.

I will give the standard, work up to the charge disclaimer. So some  🤡 clown 🤡 doesn't ☠️blow ☠️themselves up.

My order is still under "backorder" Don't know if I should just cancel it, or see how it plays out. Rebate through Savage has to be submitted by Dec 31st it appears, so I guess I can wait till then.

Actually, 12/31 is the cut-off for elligible purchases, we have until 1/31/2018 to submit rebate paperwork, so as long as we get receipts dated no later than 12/31 we are good to go.

Yup!

For less than $250.00 with tax, I was happy to wait till the end of the year if necessary.

Which store did you order through, Lacey or Tulalip?

Tullalip.
Checked my card. Have a pending charge from Cabelas. I guess itís in the works now.
And yes. Hard to beat the value for this rifle. Wished it had a mag. But then itís be more expensive.

Charge cleared my card this morning.

When I ordered my .223, the day the charge cleared was the same day I got the email saying come get it.  Hasn't happened yet with the Creedmoor though...

The two $100.00 rebate cards will help in getting a new stock and new bottom metal for one of them at least, of course then, there are mounts, optics, ammo, dies, bullets, powder......
