Who has a Savage 10FP or 110FP Tactical rifle?

My 110FP Tactical in .223 cosistantly shoots .450-.450 while my 10FP in .308 shoots about .600-.700 (hand loads).

Not bad for the money considering NO additional work done to either rifle. Triggers do suck though.

what barrel length do you have in the .308? what are the specs' of your reloads (308)? what do you think of the 20" barrel in .308?

My best .308 loads are:

Sierra 168 Gr. HPBT Match
43.0 Grs of IMR 4875
R-P Brass, fully Prep
Win Large Rifle Primers
AOL using a Stoney Point AOL guage and Bullet Comparator is 3.275"

Avg Chrony vel is 2645

WARNING: Always start below any published data and work up carefully!!!

I think for max performance the longer bbls are better...just my opinion.

How did you break the .308 barrel in? Gene

Savage 110, wood stock, oil finish (mid-60's?) 1.5 inch groups all day, light bullets, heavy bullets, handloads, factory, it seems to know the point of aim and adjusts on the fly. Weird accuracy. It is the only rifle I have ever shot that simply does NOT care what round is in the chamber, it hits where you point it.

Savage 112 HB, .22-250, ultra accurate. All factory parts, trigger was adjusted to 2 pounds. Wicked gun. 3 shots inside of a DIME on MY good days. On my bad days, it is still under 1 inch. If you don't hit the bullseye, it was NOT the gun. Very, very picky on ammo. Switch grains, or manufacturer, and your are going to change point of impact 4+ inches in any direction. I wonder if a handloader couldn't make these little .22 bullets cloverleaf...

I have a 10FP in .308 on a Ultimate Varmint stock with a 20" barrel, and a Tasco SS10X42 scope. I get 3/8 MOA with HSM 168gr Match loads. If you want the most in performance go with the 24" barrel, but the 20 incher handles (at least to me) better.

BEST bolt action for the money. Period. I have a friend who holds some records in 1000yd benchrest say much the same thing two nights ago.
