Savage's Model 12 Lives Up To The Hype In November Issue Of GUNS Magazine
"The obvious question about any target rifle is accuracy. The largest group with any load measured 1.37 inches, but the most accurate combination turned out to be a sight-in load in a group at .36 inches," details Barsness. "Savage's suggested retail price for the Long Range Precision is less than half of what a typical accuracy gunsmith might charge, so it's yet another typically accurate Savage bargain."
Love a .22 wheelgun? Enthusiasts will be delighted to read this month's "Rimfires" column, where contributing editor Holt Bodinson thoroughly enjoyed Ruger's new eight-shot LCR-22. Perfectly suited for plinking and varmint hunting, this versatile LCR is all-around fun and Bodinson could not get enough of it.
"The LCR is a great performing fun gun when shot from the hip. With a little practice, you can keep a tin can just a'bobbling along the good earth until that eighth round goes pop," Bodinson claims. "Short, light and always with you, it's a gun with a definite endearing personality."
The November issue of GUNS also features the lever-action Cimarron Model 1886 .45-70, details how the durable wood stocks from Accurate Innovations can handle harsh conditions, serves up a military Christmas shopping guide for the serving soldier and covers the return of the 10-shot compact .45 ACP Baby Eagle from Magnum Research.
