    I have a Savage Long Range Benchrest in 6MM BR. It was cratering and giving off-center primer hits. Also, the accuracy had fallen off a good bit from its early years.

    Clean, crisp with no creep or overtravel is certainly my ideal, but if I can't get that, I at least want consistent and controllable. I have an ancient Stevens Favorite with a good bore that I shoot...

    I think Al should write a Erskine Caldwell style novel on the order of "Tobacco Road" or "God's Little Acre".
