Wow, that is a very nice looking stick.  Congrats on the new toy.

In my 1-9" it has shot 55-69 grainers very well.  75's opened up a bit and my 1-7" barrels shoot those much better.

 It should shoot everything between 50 and perhaps 75 grains real well, and you  might get lucky and push the envelope further in both directions. That is a nice rifle, bud!

  Edited to add:
 Supertool- I have a 1-9 that shoots Hornady 75 HPBTs really well, but falls off the cliff with 75 A-Max's!  Mine is only a 20-incher, though; a longer barrel with the right powder just might get the A-Maxs to settle down. Never know until you try, I guess.

  Isn't it a dandy?
 I just can't get over how far Savage has come in the past few years in getting their guns to look good!
 That one just  looks like it needs to shoot well!

Thanks everybody!  It took me a few weeks to decide between her (12BTV)  and the same with a grey lamy thumbhole stock 12BGTV, one in SS (12BTCSS) and the limited edition 12ABT known as the Tiger Shark with a custom limited edition grey Thumbhole stock with sharks teeth cut out of the forestock and butt.  I think someone posted pics of one here back in Feb.  I am not a big fan of grey especially if it has some yellow running thru it (REMINDS ME OF A BRUISE) if its all grey its not too bad but I prefer a natural or red tinted finish on lamies.
I have high expectations for her since my light barreled 270 was .75MOA out of the box.  shes a 10lb gun so I now need to pick out a bipod for her!
 
Who has suggestions for the Bipod?

Dan I was just looking over the Harris sight.  Do you recommend the notched legs over the smooth legs?  Also, due you prefer the Benchrest (6-9") or light (9-13")?  I would think teh BR 6-9 should be all I would need.

Bud, depends on the situation, but I have the 6-9 for most things.  I have a 9-13 for when I think I might be in tall grass.  Definitely notch.  SBR...

According to Harris' website HBR-S is smooth leg swivel, HBRM-S is the swivel with notched legs.

Whatever... I haven't memorized all the part numbers of everything on every rifle.  Get the one the website lists as swivel, notched...
