light wind 74deg

5 shots= one mistake
1st 4 shots touching=7/8'
1 flyer, my ego
I should have left well enough alone with 4 -shots touching at 7/8', but NOOOO! I have to try one more shot. Oh Well. This rifle flat shoots! I'm a believer.
My buddy just purchased one of those and I did the mounting of mounts scope and ACD for him. I worked up some 178gr A-max and watched him shoot bowling pins at 300yds all day long.

You have a great rifle and the muzzle break removes at least half the recoil of the 308.

Great choice.

Watched a buddy shoot a 1/2 inch group with my new Savage model 10 308 precision carbine with 168 gr Gold Medal match at 200 yards.

Best I can manage at 200 (prone, off a bipod) with that rifle is about 7/8", like Jen5, that's with a 10x fixed scope. Also worth mentioning that even a small gust of wind can move a bullet half an inch at 200 yards and you'll never realize it.

It's always a roll of the dice buying a new gun, but the new Savages seem far less of a gamble than the new Remingtons.

LUV my Savage 10FP. We have flat-out embarrassed rifles costing 4-5 times as much as I have in mine. Aside from the B&C stock , it's got a Timney trigger (pre-Accu Trigger).



Updated with EGW one piece scope mount and Burris Xtreme rings.

Another selling point is the ability to change your own barrel.

I re-barreled my dads old 30-06 in one day with some "jurry rigging" and a barrel kit from brownells. Shoots holes touching at 100yds so I think it worked fine. Total cost less than $300.00.

Savage is awesome.

Very nice guys! I'm getting ready to bed my Savage in the near future and see what happens after that.

...not according to Savage's website... the FP-SR doesn't. I'm not real big on the fluted 24" barrel, but I'll probably wind up with the K because of the muzzle brake and the Accustock.

Glass bedding the savage does improve accuracy.

I stand corrected.
