Savage couple. 110 BA and it's cousin the 12 F/TR. The 12 belongs to a friend in Seattle who came over to shoot at the 1000 yard range. Good shooters the both of them. The 12 is a lot cheaper to shoot though. I'm still amazed at how gentle that .338 Lapua shoots.

So where do you shoot 1000 yds near Seattle? Puyallup?

I don't think there is any place near Seattle that has 1000 yards unless it is someone's private range. Trying to remember, but there be something north, or out on the peninsula. Otherwise there is probably something east of the Cascades.

Eatonville has a 600 yard range, and I think Machias has a 500 yard range.

I don't know for certain of any public range west of the Cascades that has a 1000 yard range.

Spokane. Mica more specifically. Paper out to 200 yards and metal targets beyond. Good spot.

Has anyone bought extra barrels for a Handi-Rifle? I'm thinking about getting some shotgun barrels for my 30-30.

Sweet looking rifle. How's it shoot? What's the trigger like? Does it take standard AR magazines?

My hunting buddy has like five barrels and one action. great system. He has rifle barrels and (1) shotgun barrels. I think he has a 30-30, 223, and a couple others.

That's very nice. If it's anything like the two Savages posted above then it should be a tack driver. Tune your Accu trigger down a bit and you'll get a nice trigger pull as well. Mine on the 110 BA is set to 1 3/4. The 12 is set to a little over 1 lb.

Thanks,

I haven't try the MVP, just got it yesterday.
All I can see is that is beautifully made.
Ohh, yes, it does take regular AR-15 magazines.

About the H&R barrel program.
I sent (for the 3rd time) a reviser to get a barrel, 308 bull.
Turn around time is usually about 3 weeks/month.
And from the price in there website you actually pay $50 more, there is a $25 fitting fee(?) and $25 delivery fee. They are very good about updating you via email and when I got the mail that my gun was on my way, I got it the very next day.

I wish Sig was like that on the updating side. I have had my Scorpion there for almost three weeks now and it was supposed to be done last week. Well, it'll be three weeks from the day I sent it tomorrow. Wonder when I am getting it back?

Yep, tuning the accutrigger (Savage term) is very worthwhile. I could get both my Savage 10 and 12 to about 1.5 lbs by trimming the little spring in the trigger back housing. (The target 12 goes down to 1 for sure). But finally I took both of the silver drilled pretrigger piece out and have both of the triggers down to about .5 lbs, which requires me to put the safety on before closing the bolt. So people who want to shoot little bitty groups will do really stupid things at times.

I found out the Paul Bunyan club at Puyallup has 1000 yard range, but normally not available for members. The club at Eatonville has a 1000 yd range which apparently available and if you know somebody at Ft. Lewis, the 1000 yd range there can be used. Need to get out at try one sometime. I used to be able to put five shots in six inches at 600 yds, but that was awhile ago.
