    It still cold here so I haven't got out to shoot test target yet but soon. The bolt handle won't make a difference on the way it shoots so the upgrade is for smoothness of working the action which is does well.

    Thanks for having a sense of humor.

    That is one feature I do like about Savage Bolts. Handles are easily changed and can be made in just about any configuration one wants or needs for their circumstance.

    Yes I live in the great white north. Getting out in winter can be difficult, during the week I go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. So that leaves the weekends depending on weather or a quick trip to the range at lunch but it's a real rush really not quality range time.
    I will be shooting tonight but that's indoor and pistol

    I broke in a 260 rem and did some load developing with 120 NBT and 129 gr Accubond LRs. It was brisk by most standards although I was in Bantario not Yukon so way further SouthEast.

    The cold wasn't as bad as the ice. Hard to stay upright back and forth across the range berms.

    Aright I blasted up to the range for lunch so I was in a bit of a rush but here it is

    I did 3 shot groups.
    I did notice it didn't always want to pick up next round if cycled quickly found myself rrechecking to see. Also felt recoil is horrible, my 338 win mag in a winchester XPR feel way better for recoil.
    So next I think I will retest with new scope, rings and mount. Was tested with scope from factory and I will also add cheek rest installed.

    Well I pick up a couple of thing that might help me shoot this rifle. One thing is a slip on recoil pad so it increases lenght of pull as well. The other a strap on cheek riser for a better and more consist cheek weld. So next time the weather braeks al go retest. My new ring and mount should be here sometime this week. Then all mount up a new scope.

    I shoot a 375 H&H that is barely 8 lbs. The slip on recoil paid made a world of difference in fit when wearing a tee shirt in the swamps of the South hunting hogs.
