Savage 25 .223 Walking Varminter

Postby Rugerboy50 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 12:42 pm

Looking for opinion on this rifle.

Will be a bench shooting only application

Have an older FLCP-K and wanting to add a nice compliment rifle to this one.

Have plenty of all in need custom 10/22's and want to add a nice .223 bolt to the group.

Have a Weaver scope that will be mounted on it.

If I want to upgrade later is this a good option? If not what are some options?

I don't have any direct experience with this rifle, but my son has a Savage chambered in 270, with the accu-trigger. I do like the trigger, but I'm still partial to my Ruger American, with the same type trigger. Mine is in 308, and is a tack driver. Ruger also makes the American Ranch in 223, as well as 7.62X39, and 300 blackout. It's a short barrel version, that I have considered for a truck gun. If you will just be using it for target practice, I don't see why the Savage would be a bad choice. They are budget friendly, and from all reports, I've seen, the quality, is better than some more expensive. JMHO

Have zeroed in on the Savage 110 Varmint with the new Accufit stock.

26" barrel & accu trigger

If its a bench gun and you can spend a little more for any of the Savage model 12's, they won't let you down for a $6-700 rifle. Again that's used pricing. I have a .204 and my brother a .22-250 and they are sub MOA without trying.
