Recently a good friend of mine announced a move to Hawaii. During his packing he gave to several friends (myself included) rifles and shotguns. I recieved a Savage FS112 chambered in 22-250, the story I got was that it would not print any smaller than 6" @ 100 yards. Let me describe the rifle, heavy barrel, Harris Bipod, synthetic stock, and a Leupold 2-9 power scope. First firing session confirmed groups of roughly 4". Initially we found that barrel was not free floating. After relieving any contact points, which shrank groups within 2", we started looking at ammo and bullet possibilities. We tried 4 different bullets to start with, using 2 different powders H380 and 4064. I won't bore everyone with the nitty gritty details. Suffice it to say We seem to have found a good combination, 38 grs of H380 with either a 50 or 52 grain Hornady V-Max with a CCI BR-2 primer. This has produced groups of roughly 1" and smaller. I am not a trained rifle shooter, I'm sure with the help of a trainer I can get my groups closer but to get groups this small with little more than free floating a barrel and handloading my cartridges, WOW!! I have never owned a Savage but if all their rifles shoot this well then I give them High praise.
