    Savage 12fv 22-250

    Bought this rifle during Black Friday. Mounted Nikon M-Tactical 3-12x40 with vortex pro rings, and a leupold rail. This thing is the best rifle Iíve ever shot! Granted Iím an archery hunter at heart and not a rifle shooter, but that is starting to change. Shot today in -5 just a bipod and got 7/8Ē all day! That was at 100yds. Now if I can get my Savage 110 270 that way Iíll be happy. Haha

    Factory Hornady express v-max 50gr was even tighter at 100yds when I first sighted in. No need to get a new stock or anything. Now with this cold weather I’ll have to get out for some coyote hunting.

    I have a few 12FVs, all purchased when they were cheap with the rebate months ago. One was a 22-250. I had the barrel threaded for a suppressor and I put it in a HS Precision stock. I was able to finally shoot it this last November. Unfortunately, I was helping a friend sight in his new Browning X-Bolt. We had some problems, and by the time that was done, it was almost too dark to shoot.

    However, I shot 5 whole shots. That was all I needed to zero my rifle and I was out of daylight at that point. I was using 53 grain V-Max bullets. I really want to shoot it some more and hope to soon. I also have some 50 grain V-Max I can try as well.

    Itís funny I had a plan to get a stock, bed it, get cool handles.... goes on and on the more I read. Then I shot it. Iíll spend more on other things, Iím certain this gun shoots a lot better than Iím capable of at the moment.

    For a carry around rifle, the original 12FV stock is actually pretty good since it is lightweight and decently constructed for what it is. I added the HS Precision stock to mine as I was able to get it at a reasonable price.

    I've had a 22-250 12 FV for a few years now. I shot it a lot in the first year and a half. At about 1800 rounds it started nearing a 1 inch rifle. Before then it was routinely shooting like yours. I put a 22-250AI barrel on it from X-Caliber with an 8 twist 3 groove in a Bobby Hart stock. It holds half moa now, with more 5 shot groups in the 0.3" range then going over 0.5". These rifles are shooters.
