Here are a couple of loads available at Midway that will do 1000 yards easily with very low drag bullets. But you will have to try different loads to see which one the rifle likes, and at the moment, there isn't much available, either loaded ammo or component bullets.

I was thinking "Lapua .308 BTFMJ" I know most people prefer their .338 magnum, but they do make a decent .308 win.

True... Maybe we can coax them into building a factory here in the US (to avoid any/all pending import restrictions)...

Both Savage and Tikka make good rifles. Donít count out Howa and Beragara. The best bang for your buck out of the box is the Ruger Precision Rifle, IMHO

Thanks. I put some of the Ruger Precisions on the watch list. I see several for .308 Win and I even see a .338 Lapua Magnum as well (but much higher price $2.5K).



I've been doing some cleaning of my "security closet" (I have a digital combo lock on the door latch) in order to make room for all the new ammo I hope to acquire when pricing drops. I still have a bunch of old C & R items from my Uncle's collection. Surprisingly, I believe some of them are still in working order, all be they not in the "prettiest" condition. I can get those cleaned up and smithed whenever I choose.



It's ironic I asked about Savage Arms, because one of those C & R pieces that still seems in working order is a Savage 12G SxS double barrel. I also have a Remington Model II Semi Auto 12G as well. Will be interesting to see if these still work.

Sorry... was kinda busy... but to answer the question.


1) Hand guns - Take a look at this thread I started 5 years ago. I have them all still except the SW Model 15 snubbie.



2) Long Guns -


  1. Ithaca 12G SxS Double Barrel;
  2. Remington 12G Model II Semi-Auto (I think it's 5+1);
  3. Savage Arms .22 x .410 UL rifle (one barrel each);
  4. Mossberg .22LR Bolt action Rifle with a magazine weld;
  5. "Un-named" .22 LR single shot bolt action rifle (with pull safety tab).
I intend to have them all cleaned and refurbished, eventually. Some of them are, actually, capable of firing at present, but I want them restored before I try.

I do, indeed! He was the C & R FFL I used to come get the weapons from my Aunt's house. I will also have him restore some of them as well.

Perfect. Gotta keep that history around a bit longer.
