I'ts been a really good rifle for me,super accurate. Had a yote one day we ranged at 412 yards,put it about six inches high and was really suprized that I hit him! Mines in .204 and at that range never new what hit him, he just walked about 60 yards and layed down."Never had one WALK Away Lol". By the time we got to him he had died. The only issue" if you can call it that" with the rifle is with the accue trigger. Seems sometimes if I don'nt take my time and squeese the trigger,it will click like a dry fire, no dent on the primer but I do have to recock the bolt. If nouthing else makes me concentrate more on my trigger pull.

I did talk to a guy in the gun shop awhile back, and he took one off the rack and tried it..done the same thing. With the Accue trigger you just have to make shur the blade is depressed ALL THE WAY DOWN before you shoot. I have mine set way down to about 2pounds so have to be careful to not touch the trigger while depressing the blade in. I have gotton in the habit now of takeing my shooting glove off to get a better feel for the trigger. Hard to do with the glove on.

Default savage 22-250

I have the savage and have not had any trouble and would recommened any one purchase it.I love the trigger.A buddy of mine has a custom built and feel like we are even.The fartest I have shot was 600 yrds and we shooting off sand bags at 3 inch circles.Had 2inside and 1 about 1 inch out.Not bad for factory.Shot a good group at 650 but did not dial up the scope enough.At 650 was 4 inches low.Again this was off sand bags with little or no wind.And also with hand loads.

I have owned multiple Savage Rifles with the accu trigger and so have other members of my family, we have never once had that happen. Just my experience.

I actually had a custom gun built for me and had the guy install the accu trigger, I have never had that problem, but I am also very consciences of my trigger pull. Maybe it being a custom built gun has eliminated that, but it is for sure the accu trigger and that has never happened.
