I have a string started called BENCH REST ACCURACY OUT OF A SAVAGE MK II right below yours on the savage forum, check it out it covers from the day it wondered its way home all the way to the finished rifle trigger, bedding, scope, tuning, ect. and some groups at 50 and 100 yds. It shot master in our local 100yd RAPTOR match 2 weeks ago and it's my bench rest sporter 215+ gun (so far) in BR and I have less than $375 in it. I shoot my MKII w/tasco world class 6-24X44 and a SUHL 150 w/weaver V24 6-24X44 standard in unlimited in the bench rest match every month @ NASA in north Alabama. Go to the forum and check it out I have pics of groups and the rifle. "T"

Hey everybody... this is my first post here. I've been posting over at www.savageshooters.com for a while. But now that I'm getting serious about shooting USBR, I was doing some google searching and found ya'll. smile.gif Great forum you have here.

Since I'm a die-hard savage shooter (well, in the whopping 2 years since I've been shooting), I thought I would contribute to this thread.

Here's my Mark II-BV in .22LR with Burris Zee rings, weaver bases, Mueller 8.5-25x44AO scope. She LOVES Wolf MT or SK Standard Plus (same exact stuff). No mods, other than some shims on the rear scope base to reach out to 200m.

Looking forward to some great discussions. smile.gif

You can see allot of data and info above your first post here and in Bench rest accuracy out of a Savage Mark II BV, I hope you find it helpful. What front and rear rest are you going to use in USBR? If you want to test your skills in USBR, IBS the national matches are on the 29

Thanks for the welcome. I'll be using a Caldwell Rock Deluxe front rest and a Caldwell Universal Deluxe rear bag with walnut media. I love my MTM Predator rest, but it's not USBR legal. I've heard lots of good things about the Caldwell, so I'll give that a try. I'll be sure to let everybody know how it goes. smile.gif

Thanks again!

Thanks for the welcome.

The groups I posted were shot at 50m, if I neglected to mention that.

The range is Quinton Sportsmen's Club out in Quinton, NJ.. Salem County, where I am a member. It's a great place, lots of great people.. and since I work mostly weekends, it's very quiet on the weekday afternoons when I go, and I most often have the rifle range to myself.

Here's the website..

http://www.quintonsportsmensclub.com/

Shotgun sports are VERY popular there.. as is blackpowder. As far as rimfire goes, the Sils matches seem to be pretty popular, but I'm yet to make it out to one because of work.

Picked it up an hour and a half ago. Will post pics when niece and I go to the range tomorrow.
The 5 round mags did not get here yet. Mounted Harris 25C (13-27) bipod, mounted the Redfield
sight, looks like it may be low enough to use factory front but will change the front to a Lyman 17.

Mounted the Receiver site and it sits real low, will take out the rear site elevator and see how close
it is to point of aim then I can order a front sight. Couldn't take close pics of the sight but have a
couple of the rifle.

Here's mine... I sighted it in at a local indoor 25yrd range and left it a bit high. Also the benches there suck. Flimsy plastic and when someone bumps into them your shots get bounced all over...

Here's my BV model with a Sightmark 4-16x44 scope and my homemade cheek riser. Groups were decent at under an inch, but I consistantly had flyers. Not sure if it's because the rifle is still new, or I just didn't break in the barrel.

Hay I'm new to all this. but with all my research I have chosen to purchase a Savage Mark II BV. I have added a Shooters Ridge Rock Mount Bi-Pod, a Centerpoint 3-9x32 with illuminated mill-dot, sitting on Leupold Rifleman Rings. I am vary happy with this setup, it seems vary accurate i can drive a 8 penny nail at 50 yards, but when it comes to grouping my first 3 shots will be within 1/4" but my last to are way out. any tips??[attachmentid=1117][attachmentid=1118]

This is my Mark II FVT. I replaced the plastic stock for a Boyd's Thumbhole second stock that I have modified. I bedded the stock with a resin called Plastic Steel from Devcon. I then cut down the hand grip to conform to NRA smallbore standards. I also embedded an Anschutz rail under the forend.

Let me be the first to compliment you on this work. That is an awesome looking TR. I am going to ping up my nephew to have a look at this. He has one that has had a few issues, but we think it may be better now after a bit of detective work.

How does it shoot? Any 50yd targets you can post up? OH....... and for your TR, what ammo do you use. His is very ammo picky, and likes the cream of the crop for now.

I had a lot of fun cutting, chopping and assembling this gun.
Mine shoots everything well, but I'm not trying to squeeze the last .10 inch out of it.

Nothing special, just a box stock Mark II TR. The scope is a BSA Sweet .22, 6-18x44 AO. This scope is sharper than my Burris Full Field II 3-9x40.

If your TR shoots as well as mine does you will be very happy with it. The fun of spending hours at the bench with various brands of ammo is how I love to spend my time.

I know - I'm able to go to my club on week days. I get there around 10AM and stay until dark. Although we have over 1,500 members I almost always have the ranges to myself when I go. I bring a thermos of coffee and stop at Subway on the way. I usually spend a couple of hours with the high powered stuff then the rest of the day playin' around with the 22's. I bring so much stuff I could be declared a 3rd world nation... I just hate cleaning it all after I'm finished... I reload 8 different calibers too! I just started messin' with 300 yard shooting. Get this - I was able to get 10 out of 10 shots in an eight inch circle, at 300 yards, with loads I worked up for a Marlin 336 30-30. I was so pleased with myself! (lol)!

PassTheAmmo,
I know what you mean about shooting the Marlin .30-30 at extended ranges. I have the same rifle and I was surprised at the accuracy of these firearms. I have fired many cast bullets through the Micro-Groove barrel with very little lead build up as long as I keep the velocity down. And my grand kids love shooting these loads.

PassTheAmmo,
I know what you mean about shooting the Marlin .30-30 at extended ranges. I have the same rifle and I was surprised at the accuracy of these firearms. I have fired many cast bullets through the Micro-Groove barrel with very little lead build up as long as I keep the velocity down. And my grand kids love shooting these loads.


I started using Hornady SST bullets with Hodgdon H322(of course I know to load one rond at a time) and what a difference it made at the longer ranges... I also have a MASSIVE scope mounted on it - looks ridiculous but it works!

Hey guys!

Post pics of your Savage Mark II's and some of your best groups. Don't forget to list all the details about your rifle: caliber, favorite ammo, scope, base/rings, modifications, ect.
<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

Hey everybody... this is my first post here. I've been posting over at www.savageshooters.com for a while. But now that I'm getting serious about shooting USBR, I was doing some google searching and found ya'll. <img src="http://rimfireshooti...IR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Great forum you have here.

Since I'm a die-hard savage shooter (well, in the whopping 2 years since I've been shooting), I thought I would contribute to this thread.

Here's my Mark II-BV in .22LR with Burris Zee rings, weaver bases, Mueller 8.5-25x44AO scope. She LOVES Wolf MT or SK Standard Plus (same exact stuff). No mods, other than some shims on the rear scope base to reach out to 200m.

Looking forward to some great discussions. <img src="style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

Nice rifle but I don't know how you are measuring your targets, the groups look much bigger than what you have them marked at.

Hey! New to all this and just thought I'd post some pics of my first setup, a couple of my best groups so far and a few types of ammo that have worked well and not so well.

I got myself a Savage MkII synthetic stock with a Bushnell Rimfire scope 3-9x.

Posted Image

The two groups on the paper are at 50 yds and with CCI .22LR standard velocity (1070fps?) - I found this to be the best ammo for the gun, out of several others. The others that didn't work were Federal Champion, Remington .22 Subsonic HP, American Eagle, Winchester SuperX copper plated HP & LRN. CCI's Blazer worked pretty well. The one with the flyer off to the top left was actually a (successful) shot at an unfortunate fly that landed on the paper which I was super proud of seeing as I've only been to the range a couple times

Posted Image

I'm super excited that I found CCI's 22 shotshells. For no reason whatsoever I really want to just try these at the range Posted Image

Welcome to Rimfire Shooting JesseB123!

It sounds like you're having a lot of fun with that Savage. It seems like it's a good shooter too. That fly picked the wrong place to land that's for sure.

Guess you made that lil ole fly's day, huh..Seeing your push pins holding the target reminds me of my brother Joe and I when we sight in a new rifle...After it is where we want it we then shoot the push pins...as you know the push pin is only about .25 diameter..We call those shots at the pins.."confidence shots"..Believe me. When you nail the pin....you ARE confident...of your rifle, the ammo, and yourself.Best fo luck to you..Keep up the good work.

I actually felt really bad about hitting the fly after the fact, which made me realize MANY things. A couple being that I couldn't hunt (never have, and now never will - except when the apocalypse comes and I survive. Obviously), and therefore probably shouldn't be eating meat at the moment - if I couldn't kill it. Anyways, those were a couple of the main ones. But as for the tacks I hit one by accident and it disappeared (also felt bad cause I stole them from my GF...I feel bad for a lot! :P) which was SUPER satisfying and I hope to be able to do that consistently and on command very soon. As of now, I can't hit a 3" steel target offhand at 25yds, so I have LONG way to go in my personal development in becoming a good shooter.

I have a BRJ Model, I don't see a lot of them, but it's by far the best shooting 22 I have. I have shot one perfect group, hole measured .222" side to side, 5 @ 50 yds, never another, but I shoot regular .2's @ 50 yds when the wind in decent.
The rifle was accurized by Scott Null at www.savagegunsmithing.com, now has a trigger that is so light and breaks like glass, it's beautiful. I added a Millet 4 X 16 X 56 scope with the fine retical (Check Natchez shooters, they have them on sale really cheap from time to time, a $370. scope for about $150.00).
I also added the forend adapter from Sinclair that makes the forend 3" wide so it rides much better in the bag in my Rock front rest.

I just got a MK1 as I love shooting peep sights, the Penn State shooting club bought a bunch, sold them NIB, Unfired (most anyway) for $225.00 because they thought they were too light, so I really lucked out on that one. It starting to really shoot.

Most used ammo is Woff MT best shooting lower priced match ammo I have found, the CCI SV and blazer are my other go to ammo's

Here is a few pics of the BRJ, first picture is my MK1, some pics of the BRJ with peep sights I put on it also and my perfect target, the other targets were shot with either Wolf of CCI SV all 5 shots at 50 yds except for the two targets marked SK ammo, 25 yds, they were shot with the peep sights with the MK1.


The very last picture is a peep sight mount that I just made for someone, I'm a retired gunsmith and have a shop with some smaller equipment now for doing my own projects.

First post in this forum so I thought I should share and introduce my rifle. I got her in 04/2009 and loved her ever since, I don't get to shoot much, but for some reason this year I find myself wanting to shoot every weekend. This is my first bolt action and I sure am learning a lot from this rifle. I didn't realize that shooting rimfire would be a drug, boy am I addicted.

Here she is: Savage Mark II .22LR BTVS RJ. My setup is still very basic. Scope is a centerpoint 4-16X-40mm sitting on super high rings...That will actually change soon.

So far Eley Target and Wolf Match Extra is what I have been shooting with. Now Im no competitor and hopefully one day compete somewhere. I'm still learning.

Posted Image

Here are some shots that she's capable of....I guess all planets and stars aligned that day for the group in the middle. 5 shots at 50 yards with Eley Targets on a bipod and I'm trying to get the same grouping. Maybe that's the reason why I'm at the range more this year. Just like golf, you hate your game but you love that one shot, it makes you keep coming back.

I just picked up a new Mark II BV last week. I mounted a BSA sweet 22 6-18x40 with cheap Weaver rings. I had a brief trip to the range last sunday for a quick 50 yd zeroing, but had to cut it short because I had to be somewhere. That was really too bad because there was NO wind. I have been waiting impatiently for a calm evening since. I finally gave up and went out tonite, even though the wind was a pretty steady 10-15 mph with occasional much stronger gusts. Even with the wind, I am IMPRESSED by this rifle. I was shooting 50 yd groups with varios ammo, and got several under 3/4 inch, with multiple types of ammo. With a scope I'm having trouble focusing, a bench rest I am not at all comfortable with, and a stock accutrigger, this rifle will shoot much better than any rifle I have ever owned.Im looking forward to tuning this rifle and finding the perfect load. So far, Aquila high velocity Super Extra 40 gr are the best, with the standard velocity Super Extra tied with Winchester Power Points for a close second. I also turned some very tight groups with a few fliers with cheap American Eagle 38 gr hp's. I can't wait to see how this all changes when I move the range out to 100 yd and beyond.

I have been shooting and hunting for many years, but have been losing interest in recent years, mostly because of the high cost of ammo, but with this super accurate BV, I have been bitten by the rimfire bug! I am glad I impulse bought this rifle (the first new gun in a few years) and found this forum!

I bought a Mark II F a couple months ago as my first rifle. I'm 17, live in the city and Ive shot quite a bit before but never had my own gun because no one in my family is into shooting. I spent a couple months researching and chose this b/c of its good reviews. I mounted a barska 3-9x32 rimfire scope and it works perfectly for me. I didn't see the need to buy a copulate hundred dolled luepold or Nikon scope when I can shoot .25-.50 inch groups. Constantly at 100 yards. All together it cost about $230 bucks and works just fine for me. So far I've had the best results with cci 40 gr. blazers. Lookin to get a bipod as well, any suggestions besides Harris? Also if anyone has suggestions on ammo I'd love to hear em. Thanks

Welcome aboard JFK3333!!!

Sounds like you got yourself a real "shooter" there. Those kind of groups at 100yds are quite a challenge for a .22.

I picked up my Mark II BTVS about a year ago. Tried a lot of different brands of ammo and now shoot nothing but CCI Standard Velocity, Wolf Match Target and SK Standard Plus. All three seem to shoot well for me. The CCI-SV can be purchased locally at Dick's Sporting Goods, when they have it in stock. It sells pretty quickly so you have to just keep an eye out for it or keep calling them to see if they have it. I haven't found any local retailers that sell the Wolf MT and SK Std+. I usually resort to buying it online (when it goes on sale) at MidwayUSA. Online purchasing might be a problem for you. I believe you have to be 21 years old.

My pleasure. A lot of folks on this site shoot CCI SV. Watch for the posts on match results. They list the firearms as well as the ammo used. A lot of CCI SV.

Those 6-7 groups are most definately a GOOD DAY. Hope all your days are like that. It's funy how one day you'll shoot so good and a few days later shoot so bad. I've had days where I planned on spending the whole afternoon at the range only to have my first target look like it was hit with a shotshell. I just pack everything up and go home. No sense wasting ammo on those kind of days.

Here's my FV with UTG 4-16x40 scope:

And here are some groupings:

50 yards with Eley (yellow target rifle box)

Posted Image


Sampler pack of ammo from 50 yards:

Top = Federal AutoMatch


2nd = Federal Champ, Rem Target x2, 223


3rd = Rem Target


4th Winchester Subsonics



Posted Image



Gettin' better at 50 yards with CCI SV:

Posted Image



100 yards with a "shoot the lights out" target with CCI SV:
Typically I need to add 30 clicks of elevation (or ~3 mil dots) when moving from 50 to 100 yards.

Posted Image



100 yards sampler pack:

Top left = Winchester subsonics
Bottom left = CCI Green Tag
Right side = Some Rem Yellow Jackets & something else...

Posted Image



And at 200 yards:
These were Blazers. The red circles to the left of the ruler were my last (and best) grouping.

My zero is 50 yards. I had to do a 9 mil dot holdover + 16 clicks to get on target.

I gotta say Wow!!! Awesome groups for a .22 at 200yds. Also looks like she likes the CCI-SV. I've got a BTVS and never had much luck with any of the Remington or Winchester ammo. The CCI-SV always shoots well so I stock up on it whenever I can find it. I've also had pretty goods results with the Wolf MT and SK Std+. You might want to give them a shot (no pun intended). :D

Glad to help M. Yup, for the price, you can't beat the CCI SV for the price. I don't know of any local retailers that stock the Wolf or SK. I buy all of mine online at MidwayUSA. They usually put it on sale a couple times a year. That's when I jump on it. Just go out and google Wolf ammo or SK ammo and it'll pull up a good number of the online places. Bit problem right now is everyone is out of stock. There's a major ammo shortage going on right now. No one knows when it's going to end.

Just purchased this Savage Mark II BTV at Cabela's in Lehi, Utah for $380. Included mounted Bushnell 3-9X scope. I immediately ordered a UTG bipod off Amazon and it arrived yesterday. Excited to take it out in two weeks for first test. I've purchased some Eley club xtra, CCI velocitors, Federal AutoMatch, and Winchester Dynapoint for initial test. Happy to join ya'll with such lovely rimfires. Finally have one of my own. Down the road I plan to upgrade to an optic with open turrets, but this will do just fine for now.

Hey! I got pictures from a shooting trip from yesterday morning. I was very pleased with the results.

55 degrees
Utah
10-15 mph gusty breeze
Federal Gameshok 40 gr round nose
Savage Mark II BTV (see above post for picture of rifle)
5000 ft elevation

First image is of 50 yard competition chart. The outside circle is the size of a quarter. This is my second time shooting the rifle, first time with this ammo. One flyer (top row, second from left). That one was my bad, and I knew it when it happened.

Second image is of 100 yards, no compensation for drop, aiming for orange circle above. three shot group. 1" apart. shooting trip results low res.jpg

Hi Creed, welcome to the forum.

Pretty good deal you got there, both rifle and scope for $380. And she looks like a real shooter, too.

I think I had my BTVS about four months when I decided to upgrade the Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 to a Mueller Target 8-32x44. Really nice scope for the price. http://muelleroptics.com/mu83244td. Quite a few folks who frequent this sight have one.

A couple things I've learned about my Mark II over the past year and a half. It's very susceptible to cold bore. On chilly mornings, the first round or two always land way off target, usually high and left, for me. After those first couple warm-up rounds she shoots great. The colder it gets, the quicker it cools down and needs a couple more sighters to warm back up. Second thing is (and this pretty much applies to all .22's) it shoots better dirty. Don't be alarmed if it shoots like crap after a good cleaning. It takes mine a good 30-50 rounds to get good groups after a good cleaning.

Dave

Very nice RPK! There's some fine Savages showing up in this thread. Some good shootin' too!
Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by trying to make it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I have put together (what I think) is a great small game rifle. It’s a just standard Savage Mark II F with that great Accu Trigger and a Leupold FX-II Ultralight 2.5x20mm (wide duplex). Yes the scope is twice the cost of the rifle but at 6.50 oz it adds practically nothing to an already lightweight rifle. You can carry this rig through the woods all day. I had the parallax adjusted to 50 yards because I doubt I could even see a rabbit at 100 yards.

Here's my Custom Axis 22lr.....and before anyone falls off into the pit of unbelief...Savage has a custom dept. call em' and ask for the "Custom Department" they will pretty much make anything you want.....money talks....i didn't order it just got lucky.....for now just a barska 6-24x42 mounted in a armalite scope mount off my .223....only needed elev. adjustments to make POI in 22lr...go figure..............now I got to buy a new mount and scope now for the .223 lol ...maybe a 10-40x50

 

did a trigger job,...smooth and crisp...she's a squirrel eye shooter at 100yd .....tested her out to 200....she's a shooter

 

the woodland critters don't like it much....but I think she is sweeeeet.....
