Well fellas, Got back not too long ago from Texas hunting over THanksgiving with the family. I've got to plug Savage Arms yet again. I've had this .243 for a long time, a 110 series from many years back (exact age, no idea, it was bought used for me as a gift.) Well, the results came back and the gun isstill the tack driver. I live in Virginia and it lives in Texas on the ranch, so I don't get to shoot much with it anymore. However, a few shots revealed it was still hitting 1 inch groups or less at 100 yards. Good enough I was able to harvest a decent buck with her. Dropped a 9 pt with a 19 spread (about 120 field dressed, big for a West/Central Texas buck.) Clean through and the ol boy ran about 15 yards before expiring. He was rutting hard and didn't stop very long for the shot, about 70 yards at a slight quarter. Man I love venison meat! Anyhoo, the ol Savage gets another mark of confidence from me, great guns.
