Gun Report

Savage Model 12VSS .308 Win.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Savage utilized a stock designed by Maj. John Plaster, author of a well-known manual on sniping. We liked the control this stock gave to the trigger finger, and its overall comfort. This stainless rifle shot well with one of two types of match ammo tried. The fluted barrel helped dissipate heat. The shooter could change butt length and eye height with included accessories.

The big bolt knob made reloads fast, and the action was slick and quick.
The safety lever is in the rear tang of the action. That lever just in front of the big bolt knob allows removal of the bolt.
