  • NSS precision ground recoil lug
  • NSS squared and trued barrel nut
  • Manson Reamers 223 Rem go and no-go gauge

Jason had the following to say about his build.

“Wanted to show you guys my Savage 223 Benchrest build. The action is a model 12 223 from their FTR model, the stock is from their Benchrest model. I applied automotive base coat and clear for a brilliant finish. A top is 8×32 Sightron Siii. The star of the show is the barrel you recommended. It shot super from the first group. Attached is a group from its preferred load of an 82 gn Berger bt and 21.8gn of imr8208xbr. Every load I’ve tried shoots under 1/2″. Thanks for the help and super fast service. You guys Rock!”

Thanks for the message Jason and happy shooting!
