    Default New Savage 10ML-II in the house

    I finally have my brand-new savage 10ML-II in the house!!

    Now I have lot's of time to get a good quality scope / mounts rings / powder / sabots & bullets.

    I have alot of learning to do before I even attempt to start sighting it in.

    Any tips to set me on correct smokeless path will be welcome....

    My first impressions are that I think I am going to like it & it will be with me untill the end of my hunting days... LOL

    Step 1 is to scrub that bore real good to remove the preservative coating. When you feel you have scrubbed it enough scrub it again one more time.

    What I recommend you should get is a nickel based anti-seize grease for coating the threads on the breech plug and vent liner threads. It can be a little messy but you should never have a problem with seizing even if you donít clean it for months after use.

    You should always have a few extra vent liners on hand.

    To measure the vent liner opening I use a torch tip cleaner and a Vernier to measure the largest tip that slides into the orifice opening.
    Or some prefer small plug gauges but that is more expensive.

    When mounting the front base-mount for the scope make sure it does not sit on top of any of the recoil lug. If it does make sure there is plenty of clearance between the two.

    This should get you ready for shooting and finer points can be covered once you are ready.

    Hi Ed...is there a reason to recommend nickle based over copper based anti-seize ?

    I original used the recommended grease by Savage and had a vent liner seize on me.
    After talking to a pipe-fitter who works on hot steam lines I asked him what he would recommend for an anti-seize compound. He recommended nickel based anti seize grease and never having any problems with it thatís all I used to this day.

    As for copper based anti-seize compound I have never used it so I canít vouch for it but imagine it might work well also. One of those things you have to try to find out.

    Nothing to thank as I would like to see you get started on the right footing.
    If any info I provide is useful to you then that has its own reward to me.
    Let us know as you progress to the shooting stage and Iím sure there are also others here who will chime in with more helpful hints.

    I originally got a lot of help on another board when I first started SML about 10-years ago and now feel itís my turn to help others where I can.

    A quick google read of nickle vs copper didn't show a definitive reason other that nickle has a higher temp scale...2400+ (vs 2000) or if the applications is where you can't have copper contamination, which wouldn't apply for use with an ML.

    I used to use the cooper on my plug threads but was having a problem with it binding and making it difficult to remove...opposite of anti-seize

    I switched to a lithium paste this past fall, much happier..
