    Got my range mowed and lookin good! Also picked up a new to me rifle a few days ago. I'll be making a video with it sometime soon, it's a Savage 110 fcp in 338 lapua. The hogs where I hunt better watch out! lol

    Buddy of mine has that same model. You need to back off about a mile or so.

    Keep us posted on how that 338 shoots.
    Buddy had one and the bolt face was way off and it never did shoot groups well.
    He accurized it or had it done and now it is a tack driver.
    I almost wanted one until I heard about his issues with it so I just stayed with my 308 and 30-06

    True, I may have to back up and shoot it from the next county over. lol

    I've only take about 5 or 6 shots to get it sighted in so I can hunt with it for now. It seemed to shoot fine for those few shots, but I'll get it in the sled and see how it does. It came with 100 rounds of Hornady Custom 250gr, so that's what I will be using.

    Buddies was like 3" at 100 with any ammo and 500 yards was lucky to hit 18x18 target.
    Now you can stick 3 in a ragged hole at 100.

    Know what you mean.

    My range is mostly designed for defensive handgun training. I can and do shoot rifles there as well.

    OH BUT, there's a terrible down side when ya have your own range !! You find yourself shopping for ammo near constantly, you end up adopting .22 so that ya don't go broke.. 1000 rds might last most folks weeks, months or even years but when ya have a range you can shoot that easy in a weekend.. It also leads to more mags, more steel, it's a vicious cycle..
