FV-SR .22LR Range Trip



Log in to see fewer ads
Like so many other FV-SR posts I've read I found that mine likes the CCI SV rounds the best. Anything with higher velocity tended to make the rounds shoot about an inch or more left for some reason.
Hopefully the picture shows up. The top 5 were the first shots with the new scope mounted, Nikon Buckmaster 4-12x40. After I dialed it down the rest were grouped nicely. There are 50 shots on that paper.
That group was at 25 yards with the rifle sitting on a bipod. The 50 yard range was full and I couldn't wait around to see what she would do there. When I do I'll post the results.

Did you get the MKII? Mine seems to do the best with the CCI AR Tactical. Of the cheaper ammo, that is. None of my rifles do their best on the SV. They all do better with Geco Semi Auto. Wolf Target Match does quite well. It should, it's twice the price of the CCI SV. I very much like my MKII FV SR. Great value even without the rebate.

Boyds Stock and FV-SR

Just this morning I dropped my Savage Mark II FV-SR into a boyds pro-varmint stock. I have not had a chance to get to the range as it was snowing and 15-18 mph winds today. The FVSR was shooting 1/2" groups in the Savage plastic stock so I am expecting no more than the same if not better. Will let you know. Good luck with yours

I'm interested to see how yours does with the new stock on it. You'll have to update me when you get a chance to shoot it. I'm still on the fence with replacing the stock. I'm not a fan of the stock it came with but it shot great right out of the box so I'm leery of changing anything just yet.

I will add that I find the original plastic stock to be fine. I added a cheek riser and that took care of that. Sure the stock is flexable but it never touches the barrel. The built in trigger guard is cheap and yes it is somewhat ugly but i do not care.
My interest is in the same Boyds stock with DIP metal hardware but have read several reports of thin wood in the Boyds stock when folks attempt a pillar job. I really dont want to spend money just for looks. Also I tend to shoot prone using a bipod so the fatter/flatter stock really is not a big deal to me. Please let me know what you think.

It's the front pillar that's missing material around the post. I filled mine with JB, filed it so the magazine slot would just go in. The new rear pillar also sticks up at least a 1/4" past the 'wood', so yes I'd look at another product for the MKII. Or beef up a plastic stock if you can.

Stock

Thanks Dog T,
Over the winter I will work on the "Tupperware" and perhaps do a paint job on it as well. I am betting on getting good results and saving a ton a money. I just love to get 95% of the accuracy of the folks that spend lots of cash.

I can't bring myself to spend the extra money of a stock when the original can be easily modified to suit my needs. Once you buy a decent stock you will have as much into a Savage as a CZ455 will cost you. Just by making my own steel pillars and whittling out a "wart" for the stock to give me consistent eye placement, I have rifle that shoots reasonable well for a very low price. Even if I added a Boyds stock I still will not get the correct eye placement unless I just happen to luck out.

I didn't luck out with the accuracy department with my BTVSS. I can't even figure out where the center of the pattern is. Looks like it's going back to Savage but I'm not happy about it. Just my luck.

Going to head out to the range on Sunday Morning. Winds should be less than 10 mph but still cold (about 30 degrees). I will say though that the Boyds stock was a conscious decision tied to preference vs performance. I like the feel of boyds.

To elevate my cheek on the savage original stock I picked up a 1" oak dowel (round) from lowes. I cut it about 4 inches long and then used a dremel to groove out the bottom. I took about about 3/8ths of an inch at the front and tapered it down to about an 1/8 of an inch at the rear. I used wood screws to bolt it to the stock (pre-drilled the holes) and then put a Butt Stock Pouch over it. For me it was a quick and inexpensive way to make the stock a little more user friendly. Ill let you know how the new stock does tomorrow

Range Trip

Went to the range today. It was in the mid twenty's but not too windy. First trip out with my FV-SR in the Boyds stock. I was able to get 3/4" 5 shot groups at 50 yards with two 1/2" 4 shot groups ( I managed to pull a Ross and put a self induced 5th round flyer in both of those flyers)

I do need to play with the action screws to see if I can tighten these groups down to consistent 1/2" groups but I was pretty satisfied. I may pick up some match ammo to see if that helps as well.

Stock upgrade?

So no improvement in accuracy yet noted from the tupperware correct?

Thanks for the update.

Not yet but I am hopeful.
