    New Bolt Gun

    I finally took the plunge and ordered me a nice bolt gun to shoot long range with. What kind, and the pictures, will have to wait until I get it. Hopefully Friday after work.

    My questions involve two different accessories for it.

    Scope. This gun will easily reach out to 1000yds. Which is why I got it. I want to start doing long range. And a guy I work with, informed me that he has land I can shoot that far on. And. I have free reign to it. That made me happy!! Haha. So. Criteria. FFP. Thinking 18-20x max. 30/34mm tube. Side parallax. Maybe illuminated? MIL-dot. I want to learn how to do it and estimate range with it. No Leupold. No more than $1300-ish probably? Iím currently checking out the Burris XTR II 4-20x50. Seems to check all the boxes. Yay? Nay? I have no experience with NICE scopes, so any help is appreciated.

    Next accessory. Muzzle brake. Area 419. Anybody have experience with their products? Or know anybody who does/has? I was doing some research, checking out their products. They seem decent. I asked somebody about their own (NOT 419) muzzle brakes that I saw via IG, and they never answered me back. So. Good job. Haha. Again, any other brands to look at would be great.

    Thank you!!

    What caliber are you looking at? Anything specific? That would influence my scope choice.

    Man. Thanks for the article!! Good read. Iíll have to go back later and read the actual test and all the data for it. Should be interesting to say the least.

    And caliber choice is .300 Win Mag.

    New Bolt Gun

    Went and got my rifle this morning. Iím excited!!





    Savage 110 Tactical. 24Ē fluted barrel. (User adjustable)Accustock and Accutrigger. 5-rd mag. (Thought it was supposed to come with a PMAG. Gonna need more mags for sure). Two sling studs on the flat fore end. Plus a 20MOA rail. Bolt is smooth! Its a VERY nice gun in person. I know some people overlook Savage because its not a Remington or Winchester or Ruger. But, Iíve shot a few different ones, also owning two .22 variant bolt guns from them, and every single one of them has been a great, tack-driving, rifle.

    Nice rifle. 300 win mag is a handful, bro in law hunts with the short version. Good round.

    Iíve had a savage or 2 and ootb it shot very well. They are overlooked, More and more options for savage stocks and bottom metal lately coming out.
