ive done a couple savage builds and have another one in work. Several members on here have done builds too. Is there general interest in starting a new thread where members can show off their savage builds and components used?

Did you install the barrel yourself? I have a couple Savages that I have been thinking about customizing.

Yes,  I built a simple barrel vise last year,  this was the 4th time I have used it between myself and friends. 



Nice. I just started doing my research, but I have two Savages that I am going to do, and go from there. Nice looking rifle!

I am using the Sierra 225gr Gameking (#2850) pushed by Varget and a Federal 210
results are SUB MOA out to 300 yards (as far as I have shot this rifle, and plan on shooting it).
Interestingly I am getting about 25 -30 FPS faster than the velocity listed for a 24" barrel out of my 21" tube.   When I used RL-15 I was getting slower than listed speeds. 

The Bear in the picture above is my 2019 spring bear, he was an average boar under 200LBS.  I called him in and shot him at 56 yards broadside, hit right behind the shoulder but about 3" higher than perfect, he dropped like a rock.  Bullet exited straight out the other side.  I found a small piece of the copper jacket inside a Bratwurst last week.

Nice bear. Congrats.

My 35 Whelen loves Varget (and also IMR4064), solid accuracy and velocity.  Very good powder for that cartridge.
