    Al, I don't think the woodstock gun is a Speedy, but it has a nice stock.

    You're probably right..... I don't really register factory offerings any more.... but I'll rescind my opinion if that's the -06.... and note that that's a pretty gunky hunk of walnut with some decent checkering on it so "maybe-maybe-maybe it's kinda' accurized inside???"

    But I doubt it.

    Sooo..... Ceow717, I'm gonna' re-state my position. I'm still not getting on board with these guys but I'll rescind my vote for Speedy Gonzales' gun.

    But I also completely disbelieve a factory Savage can get the job done after spending (wasting?) time on a half-dozen really expensive Savages over last 5-6yrs.

    Agg'ing 1moa at a thousand is no joke, even though 6.5CM's do it all over the innernet all day when guys do their part

    Anything could happen. He sure didn't do the stock and as I said, the stock is nice. Still, if you are wanting accuracy, it ain't the right caliber. Speedy can build an accurate rifle, but that is a hunting rifle only.

    The stock is a Dakota Arms. The action is pre-64 Model 70. I donít think thatís my thousand yard rifle either, I just think itís really friggin cool.

    It's not easy to do that with the very best of rifles. 1000 yards almost always offers a little wind and in my opinion that's what will cost you the 2 bucks. Just say you don't think you can do it and pay the bet.

    With all due respect, telling someone not to try is pretty much the worst advice ever.
