Finally got my new savage predator hunter max 1 in this week and went to the range on Saturday. Started out on the 100 yard range to get my bore sighted gun on paper. after 5 shots i was way close. Then the next 5 shots I was making 1/2" groups and some 3/4" groups. I never cleaned the gun and I am so impressed. I traded in my Kimber Pro Varmint .223 the dealer gave me 850 for it and i am so happy with my decision. Also I am including my 5 shot group and pictures of the gun since no one really has good pictures up of this model. Remember I was just shooting off of a bipod and sand bag.

Savage = AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SCOPE IS A NIKON MONARCH 4-16x42mm MILDOT

Those are NICE groups for factory ammo at 200 yards! Not saying Black Hills is bad, but thats better than I would expect out of a factory load.

How was it out at Lee Kay? Been meaning to get out there to test some loads, but been too busy lately.

Yes the Kimber was junk has been since I have owned it. Always was miss firing and failing to eject. Sent to Kimber 2 times and nothing. After all the headache I am glad I traded it in and did not sell it directly to someone else. Oh and I put that the dealer gave me 850$ sorry i meant 750$.

I don't care the gun had major problems and after sending it to kimber twice and also my local gun smith I had, Had it with it. There is nothing more disturbing than when you pay 1300$ for something that you absolutely love and want so bad and the [beeep] thing has been a paper weigh and could never be trusted in the field with a dog ready in my sights. I am sure that not all kimbers are but i wont every buy a kimber unless its a 1911.

Thanks

LOVETOHUNT93.

The Gun is very well balanced I really love it. At 8.5 lbs it seems heavy when your reading about it but really all I can say is I am in LOVE!!!!

This is the second savage that has blown my mind away and I think I am going to be a (NEWER) Savage owner for life.

I have a Kimber Pro Varmint in .22-250 that I'm not very happy with as well. It also has extraction issues, is throated ridiculously long. And to make things worse, I can't get any better than .223 velocities out of it without getting serious pressure signs. It's a great looking/feeling gun, but the rest of it is marginal at best.
If I had the same trade option, I'd take it as well.

Congrats on the new Savage!!

That is a fantastic group RKS1949!! I have one too; the only thing, and this is the only thing.. i don't like is that recoil pad. What do you think of that? Seems spongy to me. Other than that, love that rifle.
