Just letting the guy know it will shoot if you invest time in reloading or finding the right manufactured ammo that the rifle likes.
"May, or may not shoot well" and "Ugly", like you stated, are irrelevant. These rifles are CNC machined. Maybe not perfect, but they wil be plenty accurate for the average hunter. Exactly what it was built to do and at anaffordable price.
My brother has a Weatherby 30-378 Accumark that cost twice what my Browing A-bolt does. They both shoot .5moa.
Wait, I almost forgot. They are both 'pretty guns'. I retract my last statements. I need to go buy something ugly to compare. I'll get back to you on that.
Your turn Tndeerhunter. I can't wait for your next reply.
THUMBS UP TO YOU, TNDEERHUNTER. I WOULDN'T BE CAUGHT DEAD WITH A SAVAGE RIFLE IN MY HANDS....THEY JUST DON'T LOOK NEAT...LIKE A RUGER,REMINGTON, WINCHESTER, SAKO. THE BOLT IS UGGLY! I WOULDN'T WANT ONE IN MY SAFE BECAUSE THE OTHER RIFLES MIGHT CATCH SOMETHING BAD. THEY APPARENTLY HAVE THEIR FOLLOWING AND MAY BE GOOD RIFLES, BUT...
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
