Savage model 10 follow-up

Well guys, I feel like I need to pass on the results of this 223. I did change out the Burris scope for a Nikko-Sterling Diamond long range 6X24X50 with an amazing reticle and return to zero turrets. Leveled the scope, laser bore sight, set Accu-trigger to lowest factory setting and tried a digital pull gauge which shows 2 lb. 8 oz. Off to the range for fifty yds first and after a few shots (8) was literally putting them in one hole from a bench rest and rear bag. Shooting Hornady factory Superformance 55gr. Went on out to 100 yds and groups opened only a little over nickel size. I had the scope on 10X at 50 yds and 16X at 100.
I am very happy and do not feel any remorse for my upcoming prairie dog shoot on the southwest slopes of Colorado.
