I can't find my previous thread where I listed the specs on my custom Savage S/A
In that thread, I had posted a picture of the rifle unscoped (the scope was next to the rifle). The story behind that, is as follows;
The wonderful folks at Vortex Optics in Wisconsin, really took the time to give me the full outlook of the products they sell while at the Shot Show last January. I spent 2 hours at the Vortex booth (yeah they put up with me for that long), while they did some comparisons of several models. I had my mind set between a Leupold model, and this Vortex PST. Both Leupold & Vortex had LEO purchase programs available, but cost aside, the Vortex folks really know how to sell a solid product!
Well, amongst other bills and daily living, even a good price is still pretty expensive, but I was going to make this work. I had been doing some long range shooting with a good friend on his 6.5 Creedmore, and I gave in and ordered the scope. I really did not have the funds to do this at the time, but the price was way too good and would likely change at the first of the year. I decided that if I could not find the funds to pay the cc bill when it arrived, I would either return it or sell it.
I ended up having this scope for 3 weeks with out so much as removing it from the box. I placed some items up for sale and while I am going to miss that BCM upper, I am happy to say, the scope is on the rifle.
I took a shot of the Savage, next to its predecessor, a Remington 700 SPS with a 10x42 SWFA SS.
