I don't know about the MVP, but the Savage .224 V that I started with was a great base to start with. I'm not sure, but the MVP might have the same size and thread pitch as the Savage. If that's the case, if you could get your hands on one of H's barrels, you would be in great shape. You might do some research on that and it would save you some money and be guaranteed a good shooter. My Savage with ARP barrel is shooting 1/2 MOA with Hornady 120 SST.After seeing this post , I couldn't get this project out of my thoughts.. Why didnt I think of this earlier.. So today I stopped at the local gun shop to see if he could order in a MVP ,in 224 . My project 6.8 is under way .
