    I bought a Savage 12FV in .223 a few years back. From new it had a lot of throat and the bullets had to be seated a bit longer.
    It was amazingly accurate with the right loads, 3/8" groups were repeatable at 100 yards. After about 2000 rounds it started to loose accuracy.
    I replaced stock with a Boyd's thumb-hole laminate stock and the barrel with a stainless Shilen 8" twist barrel and now its even more accurate.
    The metal is also very nicely finished for a Savage.

    Picked up a Howa M1500 in an ORYX the other week. Very Nice.

    I got my Oryx chassis today. I think I'm going to really like this, it seems really sturdy and comfortable. It has to be better than the factory plastic stock. Hell, bolting the action to an old piece of 2x4 would be better than the factory stock. Also like having the removable magazine instead of the internal magazine as well. I'm hoping to get it out to the range on Sunday to give it a go.

    Was at Cabelas Barrie today and checked out the 12FV. Very nice. Even for regular price I think it is a good deal.
    ANYONE SEES THIS ON SALE IN 6.5. POST IT UP.
