Savage 10 BA Stealth 6.5 Creedmoor.



Log in to see fewer ads
Managed to get out an try a new load for my Savage Stealth in 6.5 Creedmoor today at 100 yds. 130 gr Bergers over 35gr of Varget in Lapua brass with small primers.

1st target was new and clean. 1st shot at 7 in the 10 ring. Corrected and put 9 shots in the 10 ring at 12. Dropped the elevation down and put 10 in the X. 200 -13X





On a roll so shot a clean wet target that had been on the board for a time. 200 - 20X.

I got

lucky Art with my Savage 12 FP. Still "tweaking" the load. However, Varget is performing spectacular. This a 100 yard target. I'm mounting better glass on it and refitting the barreled action into a thumbhole stock. I'll bed it and see what the rifle does then.



Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. Rgr on the Varget.
For a relatively inexpensive rifle, the Savages meet the need very well.

Beautiful day today so the Stealth came out of hiding. What a fun rifle to shoot.
Shooting 50' 22 targets at 100 yds. Loving it. 10 rnd group. Sorry about the two high and right, that was me, not the rifle or ammo.

Why Varget? H4350 followed by RL16 are the go to powders for 6.5 Creedmoor.

I have used all three and the Varget seems to do a more efficient job.
Actually tried many different powders over the years and settled on Varget.

Varget

meters much smoother than 4350. Performs very well.

That's a good answer.

No two rifles are the same. While across the board, H-4350 & RL-16 perform well in a large number of 6.5 Creedmoor rifles, it's not a given that it will be the best in YOUR rifle.

I have been using the same load in a couple of M14 type rifles with 6.5 Creedmoor barrels with good function and accuracy.
