Joe's Savage 30-06

Postby 44man » 27 Jun 2017, 13:36

He came to shoot it at 200 and it shot darn good groups of 2 to 2-1/2". We moved to 100 and he shot some 1" groups. Once he had 3 out 4 in 1/2".
He is using the cast bullet I designed for my 30-30, my home made mold and 4198.
I screwed him up. He had .357 test loads in a plastic box, no lid. He wrapped them in a towel, 3 different powders. I picked the towel up and spilled them in his bag. I told him 100 times to get MTM boxes.

Savage bolt rifles do shoot well. Spilling the test loads just means more play ammo :)

I found no difference at all. I watched him shoot and he does not hold right. Torque is beating him. I told him to hold tighter but he says he shoots better loose. NOT. His revolver is all over the place with recoil.

His S&W .357 has a beautiful set of wood grips that keeps my hand in position. I think it is a 686. It shot good for me and I kept all shots in the target DA. But he refuses to load to potential. I don't know why he wants 38 SP loads for it.
