Bolt Action Rifles / Savage 110 engage hunter xp accuracy
Last post by Baldwinm -
New to the forum and recently got a Savage 110 engage hunter xp 22inch 1:8 twist barrel. It came with a mounts and a Bushnell scope but I quickly switched to 1 piece DNZ mounts and a Nikon 4-12x40. I'm not quite getting the accuracy I was expecting. So far my best as been about 2 inch groups out of Hornady match 120 grain. I've also tried the 140 and 147 grain hornady match along with Winchester 120 grain target round and Remington high performance 140 grain, all of which were 3 or 4 inch groups at best. Any recommendations on things to check or more ammo to try? Or is that what I should expect? Thanks.

Reloading / Re: Nosler RDF
Last post by lofty -
I weighed out about 30 130gn RDF's this morning and the weights varied from 130.2 to 129.8. I don't think that's a huge variation though with most of the weighing either 130 or 129.9. I could sort the whole 400 I suppose and keep anything out side 130 or 129.9 aside as barrel warmers. Or I could just have a life.

Form is always important.
I would not load them .002” off the lands. Essentially you’re jamming the projectile. Pressure spikes typically occur when jamming and can cause flyers (see group C)
Keep at, looking good 👍🏻

That's thin glossy cardboard.  The rubbery stock finish likes to grab the rest.

I don't know why I have to fight with this anti spam nonsense to post or reply. It's taking me four or five tries to post. I'm thinking I'm done with this horse chit. I type in exactly what it says,and no dice. Bunch a bull chit.
got a silly question? Is there a spray or wax we could use on the forend , so it will slide with ease

I do have The Hornady Comparator along with the depth gauge. The ones for this test are.0.002 of the lands. I’m pretty happy with that group and I think I should work on my form first so that I, as the operator of the gun, can shoot better groups. Still a few things to tweak there but I do want to achieve great groups so I will get there. One thing at a time.

General Discussion / Re: The real Gunsmith

Well I gave it the whole day and nobody called me out..  :D  It was a joke and that guy is a joke too!!!  Best of the West guns are actually made in house now- they used to be built in Montana and as far a Gunwerks goes well they do their own thing as well..


The only thing that all the folks have in Common is they do all resided in Cody, Wyoming other than that they all do their own thing... :))

Now you could start working the jump of bullet to tighten up groups. Start by finding the true jam of the 143eldx. Then work jumps incrementally, start at .015, .020, .025, .030, .035, etc.. One or possibly two groups will standout over the others. When you find it or them pick the one w least vertical spread, then work in .002” graduations on either side of where you started to optimize the MOA of that load. Good luck

Hi Everyone,
I got out to the range today to see what load groups the best. Let me start off with I do not claim to be any sort of sharp shooter whatsoever. That being said, it was interesting to see how the different loads did group. The first group with 41.6 grains of H 4350 grouped pretty good but then at 41.7 it opened back up and at 41.8 it got really tight but there was one flier that was more me than the gun. 41.9 is too bad but the best is 41.8 grains of H 4350, Hornaday ELD-X 143 grain.
