  4. .223 Savage Model 12 Long Range Precision Varminter only 15 months old, only shot at the range less than 500 shots fired.The top-of-the-line Model 12 long Range Precision Varminter (Right Bolt, Left Port) provides legendary Savage accuracy,and sets the standard in long-range shooting. A heavy, fluted, one-inch diameter barrel with a smaller ejection portprovides more rigidity to the receiver and greater precision. All this, plus an aluminium v-block system in H-S Precision’sVarmint stock. It’s easy to see why the Model 12 was named a Field & Stream "Best of the Best" and earned the NRA's Shooting Illustrated Golden Bullseye Award"The condition of the gun is as new and will come in original box with all paperwork£1150 ono to face preferred but will consider RFD transfer

    Best 223 bullet for fox

    Hi, I've decided to get a 223 (definitely a 223 - to keep the thread straight ) I like the idea of shooting at long ranges, but I mustn't get away from my prime requirement, which is foxes up to 250 yards, mostly lamping. Rather than jumping at deciding on the rifle I want, I thought it might be prudent to decide on the best bullet for the job, and then look at twist rate etc so I have a good starting point for choosing the right gun. I've sort of concluded 53gr Vmax is a good candidate, but would like to seek opinions. I'll home load if I have to, but will have to start off on factory. Thanks, Simon.
  11. I am hearing mixed opinions about this. Can a standard 223 be converted to an Ackley Improved simply by reaming the chamber with an Ackley reamer? I'm told that if there's no parallel section of the barrel (for the lathe to grab it) then it can't be done, and even if there is, it might still not be possible due to other factors. The aim is to convert without costing a fortune, so it would be the cost of reaming & associated work, if possible, vs. selling the 223 and buying an Ackley. (I will need to buy dies whichever route I take). It's only a Remington 700 Varmint SPS but it's silly accurate and I really like it so I would prefer not to start again. What does the panel think?
