My newest addition
Finally finished my latest custom rifle-
Built this myself from a Savage action
30" Shilen Match Select barrel chambered in .223 Wyld
Boyds Thumbhole Laminate varmint stock, sanded and clearcoated by me
Rifle Basix SAVII trigger set at 8oz
Vortex Viper 6.5x20x56 scope with mildot, Ferrel 20MOA base with Burris Signature ZEE rings and mounts
Second rifle is also built on a Savage action.
28" Shilen Match Select barrel chambered in .308 10 twist
SSS LVT laminate stock sanded and clearcoated by me
Vortex Viper 6.5x20x44 scope on Ferrel 20 MOA base with burris rings and mounts
The .308 is a regular visitor to groups under .350", and has shot a couple of 1/2 moa groups @600
I fully expect the .223 to be at least as accurate if not little better due to higher BC bullets
wow, I was really surprised by the extremely bright cedar looking color and then the darker grey black wood laminate mix. what woods' are those by the way?
those are both gorgeous weapons. where did you come about the knowledge and experience to put your own stuff together like this?
and any particular reason why your using savage actions?
:drooling:Excellent job!Looks like you've built two tack driving,quality works of art.
What kind of loads do you use in the 308?
never met a .308 yet that did not LOVE Varget and SMK's, and that is exclusively what I load for this one

Savages headspace off the barrel nut, so if you have a set of gages and a barrel wrench you are in business. Bedding and installing pillars is not high tech either. I will admit I was terrified to pull the trigger on the first one I built though!
