    WTS - Savage Lightweight in 6.5

    Hello Folks

    I have for sale a very nice Savage Lightweight model in 6.5 Creedmore, comes with Talley lighweight rings (but NOT the scope in the photos), and has the Savage target-weight springs installed in the trigger. It has a large bolt knob fitted. 5 Shot mag. Threaded 1/2x28 with protector. Its very light, 5.5 lbs, shoots really nicely with Sierra 140's pushed at 2800 with N550. It has only fired a few rounds, certainly less than 200. Asking $800, $850 with dies. Factory ammo (with Hornady 140 Amaxs) is now available in the shops. You can take 3 weeks to pay if you like.







    You can PM me, email me foveauxsailor@gmail.com or call on 021 516 342.

    Cheers
    Foster

    PS - Reason for selling - I already have a nice Mauser 6.5x47, and have gone over to the dark side and ordered a "black rifle", so some others have to go !!

    It's lovely to carry, and Tentman got it shooting quite nicely.

    No - I don't have the original bolt-knob but I could get one if absolutely required, about a week from the US.

    Yes chrono'ed at 2801, 2786, 2812, 2801,2805, that's at the muzzle, quite remarkable from a 20" barrel eh. Brass life is at least 5 reloads at that (so far).

    Some Savage's can be pretty rough with heavy bolt lift due to poor timing, but this one is really good, I've had a few of these and this would have to be the best of them.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Smiddy you're an hour late to the party I'm afraid, its sold pending funds (via PM's). I'll mark you down for second dibs if you like.
