A very nice looking shotgun/rifle. Thanks Jason!

UPDATE from Jason:

SO FAR I’VE PRINTED GROUPS AS CLOSE AS 3/8 INCH WITH THE HORNADY SST AT 50 YRDS.

BUT WITH ONE THING..SAVAGE NEEDS TO CORRECT THE FEEDING OF THE ROUNDS. THEY JAM WHEN CYCLEING. OTHER THAN THAT SMALL ISSUE, I HAVE NOTHING BUT THE BEST REGUARDS FOR THE MAKERS OF SAVAGE 210F.

    Since posting the pictures..I have filled the buttstock with 3.75 lbs of bb’s.
    With my 3x9x40 bushnell banner scope mounted..the balance point of my 210f is just behind the trigger guard.. Resulting in a pull simmilar to a 30-30 carbine. Recoil is much less with the hornadys. Future plans are a custom mounted fish-gill muzzle brake and development of an up-scaled .50 bmg round used for long range (275-375 yrds) target/competition shooting. Thanks for viewing!

      Jason, very good idea with the buttstock. Send me a photo when you have your muzzle break!

    Steve, I had to take my 210F to a gunsmith to remove the ring mount. Seems the recoil is to punnishing for the all aluminum rings and base. He said he had no choice but to drill the base screw out because it clamped down on it moving 1-16th of an inch!
    He is going to up-grade all components to steel and go with a 2 piece design for magnum rifles in the catagory of 416 rigby and up!! He is also re-drilling and tapping the scope mount holes to accept larger screws for better securing power along with loc-titeing it all down with the red except for the base attachment.
    Here is an up-date on the magnum load sabot. I have found a 2 ounce turkey load in 3 inch chambering (est 1200 fps) made by Remington. I have removed all the shot and wad and have re-inserted a Hornady .50 cal muzzle loader bullet with a b.c. of .285! With the Sabot carrier and bullet together, weight is 401.18 gr. At less than half the weight of original payload, I should have a muzzle velocity of 2617 fps. I have 9 rounds loaded up and am waiting for my slug gun to get back. Will keep you posted. ps… here is the formula. original pay load load divided by new payload times speed of original load. (or 875 gr divided by 401.18 gr x 1200 fps = 2617.2789 fps)
