10 shots this morning with LAPUA Polar Xtreme on a 6” steel plate from this Stevens Favorite at 200 yards. A 2.4mm aperture front insert was installed, and overcast lighting limited target contrast somewhat. But, there was no wind, except for a light gust which blew shot #3 away to parts unknown. Elevation was set at 8-3/8 revolutions from the bottom.

The more it’s shot, the better it gets.  Unsure which is actually showing the most improvement, the rifle bore or the loose nut behind the trigger.





LAPUA Biathlon Xtreme with elevation at 8-3/8 turns and windage 1 click left, 75 degrees, 47% humidity, wind from the East at 0 - 2 mph.

Thanks for sharing.  It must be great to walk out on your patio and be able to shoot!

A common ailment of the 219 Savage rifles is a very hard trigger pull.  I had my gunsmith/machinist friend fix it.  It is very smooth now.

Garnett,

 If you were responding to my comment about the loose nut behind the trigger, that loose nut is me.

No, I responding to your comment about the "heavy trigger".

Five shots at fifty yards.  The Range Officer and I couldn’t determine whether the results were 3 and 2 or 4 and 1.  Which do you think it is ?

Since I cannot enlarge the picture, I would say 3 and 2.  Thanks for sharing!

I think it's 3&2. But if you said 4&1, I'd believe you.

That’s not the only time it has happened:
