My Savage is the same in the wind.
It was bought prior to the accutrigger so it sat in the safe a lot. Can’t stand a bad trigger.
Finally installed a Rifle Basix trigger that fixed that issue. Much more fun to shoot now.
It’s instant death on an armadillo.

A disclosure here. This post is a bit of a tease.

First, I shot that group. There was zero wind.

This rifle is the wife's gun. When we were courting, I took her on a date shooting Montana gophers, Loaned her the gun to shoot. She complained that the stock was to long -she had a hard time reaching the trigger and seeing in the scope.

I told her that all could be fixed by fitting the stock to her. She said so do it. I tried to explain to her that this was the gun I loaned company when they came to visit and shoot gophers. She said "fix my gun". Her gun??

So now the LoP is 11.75 inches.

This gun is a Savage 93R17. It has the accu-trigger and bull barrel. The scope a Simmons 3-12x40 SP scope. A good combination for carrying in the truck for gopher shooting in Montana.

In order for me to shoot this gun, with the butt sucked into my shoulder, I have to pull my head way back to get eye relief. Not conducive to good shooting.

This gun makes for a good inexpensive and accurate, over the counter varmint gun.
