It's a great shooting rifle and I'm amazed by the fact the trigger is factory. I can't see the point in putting in a after market trigger, it's really that good.

Thank you for the photos. It's a nice BCG, I see Savage milled some material from the BCG to keep it light I think. The key seems to be solid. I'm very curious to try the trigger pull. Give us some updates about rifle accuracy when you will have the chance to put some other rounds through it.

A couple weeks ago at work, Vista Outdoors hosted a shoot for us. They had various Savage rifles all topped with the Bushnell engage scopes. They had the MSR-10 LR with a 3-9x36 Engage on it (not impressed with the scope). This was my first group using FGMM 130 Berger AR’s. I’m impressed.

Now just to wait and see if the price lowers after the new year. If not, I'm grabbing a 6.5CM MSR10 LR from Budsguns as the price is still really awesome.

I have heard the accuracy of these rifles are mediocre at best. I do like the concept and placement of the controls. If it wasn't for the reports of poor accuracy I would get one.

Sounds like another kit gun.

You're supplied most components, but you have to finish up their work on it yourself.

Now that i have about 160 rounds thru mine and it seems to have broken in the barrel, the accuracy is pretty good on mine.
Its at least as good as my RPR but not as good as my R700 with a Proof research barrel.

Where are you seeing this? I've read articles on the 6.5 shooting .73" at 200yds and a post or so above is definitely Sub MOA

Snipers hide has groups around .5 to .6" at 100.

That's good in my book for a gas gun

Are you referring to the Hunter model maybe?

Curious about accuracy issues as well since you can get a long range version in 6.5C right now for as little as $1,675 shipped.

I just bought one. So we will see. Groups in this thread are sub Moa as well as the author of the article I posted before.

Now all I have to do is find the best rings for my DMRII optic with 50mm objective lens.

Post the link of the deal you found. I got mine for 1800 shipped.

GAG has it for that price. https://grabagun.com/savage-msr-10-long-range-6-5cr-22.html

Good deal for sure.

Does anyone have experience with these slam firing, I’ve seen one do it and it was supposedly a weak firing pin spring allowing the firing pin to smack the primer.

There've been a few posters hit this thread with sparse details and low post counts.

They should probably be sent to Sig for a fix.

Do you mean savage?
Link Posted: 3/28/2018 4:46:05 PM EST
Anyone with the hunter version who has at least 100 rounds shot, is it worth it or would you go another brand? Been considering getting one but with the mixed reports of accuracy, makes me a little nervous to go savage route. Had a 6.5cm bolt rifle but sold it to fund a different rifle. Since this is savage 1st time in the AR world, wasn’t sure they could compete with the guys who have been doing it for awhile. Price seems pretty good for the hunter.

Here is my take on the 6.5 Creed Long Range. I really like the side charging handle, forged upper & lower, tension set screw, adjustable gas block. Trigger is descent for what it is but I did change it to an ELF straight trigger but haven't shot it yet and not impressed with the muzzle break. Fit and finish is good. I'm getting 5 shot .75" groups at 100 yds loading 40.5 grns of H4350 pushing a Hornady 140 grn ELD Match bullet. Sorry no speed on the load operator error on my part. I have had no issues what so ever with the gun. I'm not a big Savage fan , I have owned some in the past, but with all the features of the gun and the price it's hard to beat shooting .75" groups out of a stock gas gun.

Wonder how many of these are due to know knowing how to shoot a gas gun properly.

Mine did it twice last week during a class. I'm thinking it was the primers not the gun because it only did it twice. Both with primers from the same box.
150 rounds shot after that were problem free and held under a minute all the way out to 1000.

Got to shoot the 6.5 hunter a little more over the weekend. Large improvement in accuracy by changing the trigger and removing muzzle break. The stock trigger on my hunter was poorest ever gotten on AR, and the muzzle break had too much gas going one direction (just opinion). Really like the way gas system is set up, smoothed carrier edges/finish, accuracy and weight. And yes, lighter rifles are tougher to shoot accurately. Have it set up to shoot an omega direct threaded, and it does not carbon up as quickly as others and the carrier finish helps a lot. While the factory adj stock isn't the best, it works satisfactorily.

Am getting 2650 fps from factory Hdy 140 ELD match rounds, and 2730 from factory Hdy 120 ELD match. It is appearing to fulfill the purpose I got it for, as a lighter 6.5 cm with more advanced features at less expensive price.

Do not like yet another not standard parts interchangeability, but will see how it holds up. Wish it had the side charger.

Was glad to see savage throw in to the ar market but dont like the msr. Mostly because of the upper and handguard setup... Am i wrong, you crack or strip one of those mounting holes on tbe upper and you are basically screwed... And forget aftermarket.
