............Chris has this thing set up correctly. Which part getting you to do it or the scope on the rifle?
You're correct Dale, getting him to it was about the only thing I did.
"Project Savage / SS" is to show what can be done on a budget with, new "out of the box" equipment.
Rifle - Savage 10FP HS Precision w/ Accutrigger $899.95
Scope - SWFA SS 10x42 $299.95
Mounts - Burris Xtreme Tactical base $17.95, Xtreme Tactical 30mm rings $57.90
Bipod - Harris S BRM $89.95
Michael is going to shoot it and a true "full custom" rig side by side at 100, 500 and 1,000 yards to show that you don't have to sell a kidney to get into shooting long range, accurately. The Savage / SS package is a very capable and reliable rig. Many police departments we deal with have a very limited budget or they are required to purchase their own rifle and scope, this is the exact set up that we put together for many of them.
With the recent jump in prices from Schmidt and Bender, USO and Night Force just a scope can cost you close to $3,000.. A custom rifle will set you back, $4,000.
I didn't anticipate the Savage / SS to out shoot a $7,000. rig but it looks like it is going to.
By the way we are going to sell set ups like this on GunBroker. They will be broken in and sighted in, ready to go. We can't promise you'll be able to duplicate what our esteemed tester can do but you will have a target that shows what the combo is capable of doing.
