    Say, what rail is that for your bipod? How did you mount it. What brand bipod? Thanks.

    Hey Dan — been looking at the ultralight for two years now. Always comes down to getting a box of factory bullets. Thinking about reloading — could you take the time to tell me your load development/specs for your 143 hammer bullets. I like how you where pushing over 3100. Thanks – from Wyoming

    Nice review! I have one of these chambered in .308 Win and I like it a lot, mine is also very accurate with my reloads

  5. Jack son on May 1, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Can you send a link for the scope

  6. ez on May 1, 2023 at 4:14 am

    Hey! I got the same rifle and i reload for it, im using 140gr barnes ttsx, 62gr of H4831 at 2960fps. How do you get 3150 without any pressure issues? I would like to try it out. Bullet and power charge? Thanks!

    How is the action and aftermarket support?

  8. SOBAT HUNTER on May 1, 2023 at 4:18 am

    Ini unit yang bagus buat menembak buruan yang besar dan jarak tembakanya sangat bagus👍😁

  9. Bill S on May 1, 2023 at 4:19 am

    I have that scope and hate it. Definitely not great optics.

  10. E7TEGT50 on May 1, 2023 at 4:21 am

    Cool rifle. Thinking about getting one. How is the stock? Any good or cheap and flimsy?

  11. Forrest Earnest on May 1, 2023 at 4:24 am

    Definitely a nice rifle. $900 of the cost is in the PROOF research rifle barrel. I currently have 3 Savage Rifles and like two of the 3. I have a late 90s M110 wood stock in .270 Win that my Dad bought me when I was 15 and I am 39 now. I have a newer M110 Long Range Hunter in 300 WSM that I got in 2019. I like it, but can’t turn the brake off. So my past two rifle seasons my ears 👂 were rung. I have a A17 in 17HMR, it shoots accurate but it won’t feed the 2nd round consistently at all.
    I have thought about selling the A17 and getting a bolt action instead of semi. I also am thinking of selling my .300 WSM which is 8.4 lbs and possibly getting the Savage UltraLight in the same cartridge. I wouldn’t mind a 7 mm like a 280 AI to fit in the middle.
    I watched this on my TagHub account way before this dropped on here. One of the perks.

    Yeah me and my great nephew and my two cousins we prefer 338 Lapua and our 243

  13. NickG on May 1, 2023 at 4:30 am

    Love the set up! What kind of bipod is that?

  14. Alan Killian on May 1, 2023 at 4:33 am

    I agree with your opinion on the .280 Rem. I still use my late fathers Rem. 725 in .280 Rem. It’s never failed to deliver reliable year to year accuracy and stopping power without excessive meat damage with proper bullet selection.

  15. SpotemShotemBoys on May 1, 2023 at 4:35 am

    Awesome vid man ! Would love if you could check out some of my no scope action. 😃 Keep up the hunts !

  16. lupoed on May 1, 2023 at 4:40 am

    verry bad hunting not capable of a oneshoot kill!! but hey most important to wear a fancy war logoshirt with the Us Flag. Just lame af!

  17. NE Cummins on May 1, 2023 at 4:46 am

    Everybody keeps trying to get me to go to 6.5 creedmoor I’m just not a fan. I’m more of a fan of 308.
    My two favorite rifles 243 and my 22 mag. Although I will say if I want to get distance and I mean distance long distance I’ll use my 338 the Lapua Magnum

  18. John Cox on May 1, 2023 at 4:49 am

    That’s plenty of scope i have bdc on all my scopes to

  19. John Karaphillis on May 1, 2023 at 4:49 am

    Love your choice of cartridges. Lifelong .280 Remington hunter/shooter that transitioned to P.O.’s version 5 years ago. Very efficient cartridge.

  20. Pete on May 1, 2023 at 4:51 am

    Could you tell me what scope base you put on this rifle? Or any one chime in.. Thanks

  21. NE Cummins on May 1, 2023 at 4:53 am

    I will disagree with you on that scope. Three of my rifles have a Arken SH-4 Gen 2
    $400 for scope with clear glass parallax and also has illuminated reticle I also use my sun shade an make a cat’s eye with electrical tape to keep out sun glare.
