From a coaching perspective, it looks as if the butt is a little long. Assuming this is set up for Prone, and not Kneeling, I'd expect the grip to be a little less than halfway between the butt and the handstop. It may be a trick of the photo, but yours looks to be a little the other way. If you're a tall man who needs a long butt to accommodate long arms and neck, I'd expect the handstop to be 1-2in further forwards. The handstop should be at/ahead of the point of balance, but not by much.

When the butt is too long like this, there is more weight in front of the support hand, for the arm and sling to carry. Moving the butt in a notch or two, and moving the handstop out by the same would change this. Your right hand would come onto the grip from more of an angle, but that's not bad. You don't need your trigger arm flat against the stock. So long as your trigger wrist is straight, and the shoulder isn't cramped, the butt isn't too short.

Obviously moving the butt in, you may need to shift the rearsight forwards, unless a shorter eye-relief is better. Against this, the breech is closer for easier loading.

@Tim, you've got a pro's eye! This is how the stock came from the factory. I took this picture right after I mounted it on my rifle. I'm a prone-shooter and immediately after the first training session I turned the but plate and hook 180 degrees to get a better position. The shoulder hook is much higher now. Took me a couple of weeks to finetune the shoulder hook, cheek piece, the grip and the handstop. I shoot around the 620's now (decimal scores) with a 10.2 average. Not bad for a 44 year old Annie.

Here is my Savage/Anschutz model 141M with a Leupold 3-9 EFR scope I picked up recently. I keep wanting to get an Anschutz and I am getting there in a roundabout way. I have a couple of Anschutz barreled Rems, now this and hopefully soon will get a straight up Anschutz. This mag seems to like the old Winchesters and CCI Maxi Mags best so far. I did just pick up some Federal 50 grainers and some Hornady 45gr to try out. Anybody have one of these that they have a favorite ammo?

620s decimal scores are very respectable for a non-professional regardless of the rifle's age.

That is a piece of work.

Nice shooting with your econo-ride. I was never a big fan of using CCI in an Annie,most;y because of difficult cycling. If you have an op,try some RWS target.It's not too expensive and always did well in my Annies.

Tried SK standard, Lapua, Geco, Aquila and CCL The cci produced the best group and cycles perfectly.

Fine shooting for CCI.

Try some SK Pistol Match and RWS-R50.

This is my recently acquired Anschutz/Savage 184, a beautiful lightweigh rifle that is as accurate as any. I shot these groups with iron sights and was surprised that it was right on target.
