    Savage 116 6.5 X 284 Norma Mag 24" barrel

    Savage 6.5 X 284 Norma Mag, bought off a fellow forum member a couple of years ago, he had taken on 1 hunt. I took it to range once or twice and worked up some loads fairy easily with AR2209 and 140 & 147 ELDM's around 49grs. So probably less than 100 rounds down tube? Ballistics are pretty similar to the new 6.5 PRC, recoil similar to a 6.5 Creedmore (i.e not much) but with some more punch!
    Worked up sub MOA 5 shot groups with both projectiles easily, still have the targets with loads on.

    Weights 6.9lb, trigger is set around 2.5lb. Barrel tapers away to a mountain rifle type taper around 0.60" at muzzle, 20 MOA rail fitted. Barrel is not threaded or anything as wanted to keep it clean for trip down South Island tops type shooting, never made it and has sat in safe.
    Can throw in 30 rounds of loaded ammo if transferred in person, Lapua Brass which is either new or once fired. Retailed for around $1800 in NZ mainly on special order.
    $1050 ono

    Sorry having trouble uploading photo's, message me and can email unless I figure out beforehand
