Shot my Savage Model 12 450BM at the range today

Used my Leupold Zero Point bore sighter and was confident I'd hit paper with 1st shot at 100 yards and I did. It was an inch high so I moved it down 4 clicks (but I shouldn't have) and then shot a 3 shot group at one of those exploding bullseye and was impressed. Had a 1/2" group and nearly put two shots into the same hole.

Norman Fox of Fox Firearms in Burton, MI uses a Savage .308 action and instals a 450 barrel on it. The barrel is free floated in a Boyd's stock I believe with a Cerakote finish on the barrel.

Then I went to where I hunt so I could shoot at 200 yards and jerked the first shot (lower right) and then had a clean 2nd shot. It printed about 2 1/4" low and 2 1/4" right which mirrors the 1" low and 1" right at 100 yards so I set it back 4 clicks up and 4 clicks left. I think this rifle will hunt!

Here's a couple pics but I had trouble with them not showing the entire picture the last time. Norman Fox had suggested the DNZ Unimount and since I have one on my Tikka, I ordered one for the Savage as well. I had bought the 3-9x40 VX-2 CDS for another project but it found a home on the 450. I just ordered my free CDS dial to match this rifle's velocity which averred 2270 fps with the 21" barrel.
