Well, the lake bottom finally went down enough to try some long distance shots. I figured I'd site in at 100 yards and then try some 200+ yard shots. I'm shooting Hornady 32g rounds. I strap the rifle into the sled and squeeze off a few rounds only to see a 3" at best grouping. I try shooting off the bags. Same result. I mount a different scope hoping it's not the rifle. Still nothing. I let some one else shoot who can drive tacks with his .17 at 100 yards. Same result. These rounds were just flying all over the place. I bought the gun six months ago, but didn't have anywhere to really try it out. I wonder if Savage will fix the problem, or if they'll tell me I some how abused the rifle. At any rate, this has soured my taste for Savage fire arms. I'll probably never buy another one.
