Default New Rifle Savage 16BCSS

[IMG]
Good thing I didn't buy this rifle first. The rest would be disappointing. It's a Savage 16BCSS. Got it from The Sportsman's Den in Red Deer. Package rifle. I know, cheap scope, right? Not. Bushnell Elite 4500 2.5-10X40. DOA 600 reticle.
308 Win laminated stock, stainless. Took 90 ish rounds of load development to get to target results posted. Hope you can zoom in on images.

Congrats on the rifle! Your pics are too small to see anything though.

Another member sent a PM asking about the load I'm using. I'll post it here. Hornady 150 gr. Interbond in front of 46 gr. Varget. Fed. 210 primers and Winchester brass. Got me an average MV of 3040 (with a 22" barrel). Faster than what I expected but it was 30 c. yesterday when I shot these. Headspace measured with comparator was 2.875 max COAL and I seated these @ 2.850.
