    Hey it worked!

    I always have trouble figuring out how to post pics on a new forum, but this one was easy. This a savage action that I bought as a complete rifle in 30-06 at a local pawn shop for $200 I then took off the barrel and stock and sold them. Then I screwed on a custom Shilen match barrel in .308 and put it in a Duramax stock, along with a Viper 6.5x20 scope.

    the results

    This is a 5 shot 300 yard group with factory ammo. I have not got a good handload worked up yet. Once I do this rifle should easily do 1 hole groups at 300

    Very nice! How much did that barrel cost? I have a Savage 110 in 30-06 and have plans for some mods to it. I have an old one so the first thing I'm going to do is drop in some kind of after market trigger. I am also going to replace the stock and now all of a sudden, I'm thinking of a new barrel!

    Thanks for the pics!

    barrel cost

    The barrel was just under $300, and I forgot to mention that I replaced the factory trigger with a riflebasix sav II trigger.

    Also this build started as a model 110 just like yours

    That is unbelievable. I am happy with that group at 100 yards, with hand loads.

    With that, you don't need a pistol.
