The new Savage 110 is a shooter. With the Hornady 150 grain SST bullets and surplus IMR 4895 powder, it shoots exceedingly well.
The LDWF range at Woodworth was open this afternoon. While I was there it was raining and I had to dry targets before I could write on them to record load data, but they look great now.
This load with 50 grains of powder shot just fine. You'll remember that I fired the rifle yesterday at the deer lease and put the bullets over the chronograph. Today I didn't erect the chrony. It was raining too hard. This target, with 50 grains of powder turned in a good group, at just under and inch.
A few minutes later, I shot the next target. The load in that particular string was 52 grains of 4895, Remington brass, Hornady 150 SST, and CCI 200 primer. Four shots went into 0.75 inch. I called the fifth shot as a flyer, telling my son "That hurt. I'm done." He replied, "Yeah, it went off the paper."
I still need to chronograph that load, and I will, but it turned in exceptional accuracy in falling rain. I suspect the load is running somewhere near 3000 fps, but I'll know more when I set up the chrony.
I feel like I am going to like this rifle a lot.
