    I did find it necessary to have something for re-coil, with the 20 inch barrel shooting 308.

    I used a bag of sunflower seeds - basically like sandbags, but much lighter. Made them for shooting on wild land (away from fancy stuff like front shooting rests). An athletic sock filled with sunflower seeds, tied off with wire.

    But with the 24 inch barrel, the 308 is a completely different beast. (higher velocity, much less recoil)

    I like the Savage rifles too.

    the club shooting friend I have spoken about runs Savage receivers with a Krieger barrel. I like. Nice stainless barrel. Not something you could go hunting with though, About 1" diameter.

    Do you mean a Savage lower receiver - AR15 or AR10 format ? Didn't know they made them.

    Or a normal Savage rifle, like the 'trophy hunter' line, with a custom spec barrel ?

    No not an AR. Regular rifle action.

    Re: 6.5 Creedmore

    I picked up a gun mag the other day and it had a precision chassis review in it. Was not one I have heard of before. A US manufacturer I cannot remember the name of.

    I checked out their web site and I thought I book marked it but can't find it.

    Here's a .223 on an XLR chassis.

    I didn't post this for some reason.

    What are thoughts on barrel fluting? Expecially that style. Don't usually see that style. I realise more surface area than straight flute. More metal removed as well. Lighter. Does that add weakness or reduce life? More cooling, increased life?

    .308 is good because you usually want to stick to military rounds during SHTF for availability. I think .243 is a necked-down .308, so brass would be highly available. I don't know much about the Creedmore, but looking at building a 6.5x47 Lapua soon. 6.5 mm seems to be the sweet-spot for long range calibres,
