Ive had this rifle for 3 years and put 10,000 rounds down the pipe, it has been superbly accurate and reliable. I have won many club level PRS matches with it against people with much more expensive rigs. Ive shot a .006" group with it and it consistently holds .25" groups and 100 yds. It will routinely shoot 1" groups at 500 yards. I have a hard time finding loads that do not shoot great. Bedded the action but other than that it is factory. If you are considering buying this rifle do it and never look back! If you do your part it will shoot every bit as good as any high dollar custom out there and that is a fact. Impact guns has excellent customer service and so does Savage! DO IT, YOU OWE IT TO YOUR SELF!. "only accurate rifles are interesting" as far as loads i would start with 175gr smk with 41gr of rl-15, or 42gr varget or 42gr of H4895. If you want to get fancy try a 185berger hybrade .020 off the lands with 41gr of varget. I have many nice rifles but this is by far my favorite!!, Now savage offers a 10rd magazine that works with the factory bottom metal and your good to go. With quality glass and ammunition the savage 10fp Mcmillan will outshoot any other factory rifle i have ever seen.
