This project started when I bought a second hand Savage Model 10 in 308 at my local gun trading post. I had dies for the 308 but it wasn't really what I was looking for in a varmint rifle (I just got a good deal on the rifle). I ended up with chambering a Douglas XX in a medium-heavy contour, 10" twist 23 1/2" long in 6mm-284. I installed a SSS recoil lug but kept the accu-trigger and just put a lighter spring in it. I had Kevin Rayhill retro-fit the new single stack magazine on while he was truing and timing the action.I used the rifle with the factory stock for deer season this year and bagged a buck using the Sierra 85 gr. HPBT GameKing bullet. After deer seaqson I put on a Nikon Buckmaster 4-14x SF scope and for Christmas Santa brought me a Stockade Gun stock and thats what she's wearing in this picture. 1/2" or better three shot groups are not uncommon for this rifle with the right loads. It weighs 11 pounds with the Harris bi-pod and sling but really doen't feel that heavy unless I carry all day.She will not win any beauty contests but I guess pretty is as pretty does or something like that.
