I started the day out with a 100yd zero.  Then moved to shoot two five shot groups.  155 gr. MK HPBT did good at 100 but not at 656.  The 168 MK HPBT did ok at 100 but really good at 656 with one flier.  At 656 I had four together, 1 7/8"!  At 300 I had three shot group of 1 7/8". 


155Gr top and 168 Gr bottom.   My savage likes the 168 with an OAL of 2.855

Didn't do to bad at 300.  You can see my AR group with one flier.

With a better rest and learning a little more about making my loads better.  This rifle is a shooter.  Less than a two inch group at 656 yds(600 Meters) with one flier.  The three top right and two center left are 155 gr.  Not so good in the wind, which was about 8-10MPH.

   Excellent  GOOD shootin' troop!
 
   Noticed your cartridge OAL is almost 3mm over SAMMI specs. GOOD on Savage to allow some extra room in that detachable box for seating bullets out.  Still got more room if you want to experiment more?

No mag.  I mean I have a mag just don't use it.  Single shot, load with the bolt open.  Just lay the case on top of the mag.
