    Hmmm. Didn't think of that...well, I didn't actually read the 'fine print'. I will keep watch for sure for a savage sale for the next few weeks. That would be a killer deal getting a 10 / 12 series for well under $500

    If a 12FV went on sale for $479...plus that rebate... that would be insane. Something like $385 in the end. Buy 2!

    It seems I need to grow out my hair, I just joined the 6.5 ManBun Club.
    It did about moa with Federal blue box 95gr straight out of the box with a Bushnell package deal scope, the $40 one.
    That was with a rolled up jacket as a rest on the roof of the car, while getting eaten by mosquitos.
    I think it will likely do a whole bunch better than that.

    My hand is pretty sore from having to hammer the bolt open after each shot, but it got a little easier as we went along.

    Going to give it a thorough cleaning and see if that helps.

    Now to order dies, brass, crap I don't have any 6.5 bullets... oh this is fun

    Welcome to the club.

    Had some really nice results with Federal Berger Match last time I was out. Haven’t had as much time as I’d like to play with either the rifle or the hand loads. The action in mine smoothed up a fair bit with a good wipe down and a slather of G96.

    My stock 12FV with a little bedding is an easy .6-.7 MOA rifle with 143 ELDx bullets and 41.5 grs of H4350 but my RPR (with IBI barrel and Timney 2 stage) is shooting an easy .4 MOA with the same load so the FV doesn't get used a bunch lately.

    Might have to get an oryx for the FV and see what that does

    Here is my 6.5.
    Kinda went a little overboard from a $500 Savage straight to a RPR with scope.

    Through an IBI barrel on it, you won't be disappointed!
