This past 6 months I have built 2 fine rifles...one on a Savage target action, one on a top of the line custom action. Both barrels are Kreigers, and both chambers are cut with the same reamer. both have custom stocks I made. both are in 30 BR. After many trips to the range I can tell you that the Savage shots as good or better than the custom action. No one was more surprised then I was. The ammo was exactly the same, as was the preps and all powder was weighed with the same loads and bullets...This does not say that custom actions are not great, just that Savage actions are right there with them..who would have thought??It's nice to know that you can spent half the money and get the same result, except that the custom action is so tight that ANYTHING getting into it will lock the bolt. I will update as this progresses.
