I bought a wood forearm for the Savage SBS. The Ramline piece, while functional, is ugly. This part is from Numrich Gun Parts, and is described as a “shock absorbing forearm”.
What is the spread like on a 13″ barrel 12 gauge? The following targets show the patterns produced by the Savage SBS with S&B #1B, twelve pellet load.
If I recall correctly the dots are 1.5 inch diameter patches that come with the large Shoot-N-C targets. At five yards the pattern is covering about 5 inches and just over 10 inches at ten yards.
Here are fifteen yards coverage is 14 to 15 inches. And I lost two pallets over the top of the board.By twenty yards the pattern is huge. There are nine pellets on this board covering over 2 feet. So yeah, shot barrel and no choke make it a real scatter gun.
