Remember that 300 savage project ?

We tested it all out today.
Thanks for your help Wambli.
It is ready to hunt now.
Has a sling and is all scoped up.
She picked up two boxes of the Hornady Super Performance ammo and the gun liked it.
The grin she had when she saw the target was a mile wide.....I literally broke out laughing.

The group was at 50 yards.
You can see the initial sight in.
First was very high. An adjustment down some for shot # 2. Then pretty close fire another ok another.

    A good round in an accurate rifle.  I've got two 99s which shoot great.

    That should work just fine.

    Just that pesky one of not being able to use it in this state for deer.

    My 99 likes Superpreformance. I tried it out at 200yd and it was sub MOA with the original 4x scope.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
  • snake284snake284 Senior Member Posts: 21,132 Senior Member
    Almost perfect. You back that out to 100 yards it may well be dead on. And from the looks, that group will be a half an inch at 100. Not bad at all. But that excellent old Remington is so inherently accurate if you do your part they will do the rest.

    New Hampshire Too......She is working in one of those states and commuting daily right now..
    She wants to pop a bear with it.
    It was pretty windy the day we shot Mike. I had her fire two at 100 and they were very close together.
    Varmintmist her gun definitely liked it also.
