Thumbs up Savage 10 FCP-K .308 Range report

Rifle: Savage FCP-K
Cal. .308 win
Ammo: Fed. GM-Match 168gr.BTHP

5 shots= one mistake
1st 4 shots touching=7/8'

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.

Thanks for the range report jens5. Glad to see your happy with the performance of both you and your rifle,that's some fine shooting from 200 yards. I recently purchased a model 10 fcp-k in .308 for my self, but have not had a chance to fire it yet. You have set the accuracy bar very high. It's good to know that the rifle is capable of achieveing that type of perfomance.

Match results

I had broken in the barrel with 80 rounds of LC match 168gr. Tried some surplus DAG for grins. Although my M1A prefers them, they are terrible in the Savage. Good only for a fouling shot. Seems the Fed. GM Match is what it like's to eat. Next outing will try some M-118 173 gr. and some Fed. GMM 175's to see what they do. Can't wait to hand load for this rifle. BTW, with trigger-pull gauge the out of box trigger is 2.6 lb's

What is the doohickey on the end of the barrel? A brake or one of the adjustable dampers? I'm considering the 10FP-SR, I'm just wondering what the big differences are besides the detachable mag.

Hey charlie, that doohickey on the end of the barrel is not an adjustable damper, it's just a muzzle brake. I'm thinking that's what the K represents in 10 fcp-k.

Your Savage will also love the 175gr pills. It has a 1-10 twist barrel. I have that same model in Lefty and it is a dream to shoot. Radway Green shoots fairly well in mine. And Dag is just for fouling.

How rigid is the stock ? Several years ago I owned a pre accutrigger Savage 10FP that shot well after I replaced the stock with a more rigid one. The Savage stock was noticeably flexible at the front and the stock touched the barrel on one side. My old Savage outshot my Remington 700VLS and I have been contemplating buying another Savage.

The Accustock seems pretty stiff. Ran a dollar bill down the barrel to the receiver. Free-float all the way. Judging from the accuracy I've seen so far. I'm not changin a thing.

Can't wait to try some 175's. Thanks for the tip.

It's a muzzle break and a very effective one at that. Weight,recoil pad and muzzle break all contribute to very mild recoil. The break uses a crush washer and removal would be similar to an M-16 break.
The differences between the 10FP-SR and the FCP-K are. The 10FP-SR has a 22" non-fluted barrel instead of a 24" fluted on the FCP-K. The SP has a threaded barrel but no break. Both have Accustock and trigger. The SP is about 1/2 lb lighter than the FCP-K.

Also, the threads on the barrel for the brake are the same as most sound suppressors (5/8x28 I believe). The Accu-Stock's aluminum bedding goes all the way up to the front sling swivel. I think it is a very rigid stock. My only complaint so far is the butt pad is a little too soft and tears easily. Also, the Accu-Trigger is adjustable. I had to adjust mine to be a little heavier. I wasn't comfortable with the factory setting as it was at it's minimum.

As one must remove the stock to access and adjust the Acc-trigger. The 3 action screws must be torqued in increments of 10 inch lb's to it's desired spec of 40?. I've been told that unless this is done correctly, it will be impossible to achieve the original accuracy of the out of the box rifle. I had my trigger pull measured at 2.6 lb's which is fine for me. Therefore, I see no reason to remove the stock. I haven't had an issue with the recoil pad yet, but your right. It's really soft. The muzzle break is very effective IMO.

As far as torquing the stock back down, there is a procedure one must follow. I found it in the owner's manual. Follow it step by step and you will be fine. I noticed no change of accuracy if the procedure is followed. I just made sure to use a quality torque wrench. My preference is Snap-On.
