Guys, I'm itching for a .308 and I've decided on a Savage 10FP. Does anyone know who has the best price? Shotgun News has one dealer in Nebraska (I think it is) that lists it for $360 + $10 shipping, plus my dealer's transfer fee. Locally, I've got a price of $415-425, which is comparable, but I'm just looking for the best price I can get. Does anyone know if I can just buy the barreled action? I will likely get a different stock for it anyways. Finally, does anyone have experience with Young Guns in Apex, NC? They have a nice web site and they are fairly nearby, but I haven't actually checked out the store yet. Thanks!

Sure, lots of Wal Marts, but I've never seen a 10FP for sale in one. Anyone else with the lowdown?

Trickshot: Try calling Savage directly. That's what I did and got my 10FP at a very good price. They should tell you where their distributors are. Ask them to tell you who are the largest movers of this weapon then go from there. By the way, I've had mine for over 4 years now and Remington hasn't been able to touch it!

Can somebody tell me the difference between the 110FP and the 10FP? BTW, I was looking through the catalog at the local Wally World last week. They had the 10FP, but no 110FP.

Thanks, I'll definitely give Savage a call. I never thought of that. BTW--the 110FP has a longer action than the 10FP which is a "short action" but I've read that it is more like a medium compared to other short actions. I don't really know what the difference is though. Faster cycle time?

10FP is short action such as .223,.308, etc. 110FP is long action for 30-06 and such. Go to [url]www.savagearms.com[/url] and look under centerfire products. I got to fire my 110FP today in 30-06 for the first time. I have the Choate Ultimate Sniper stock on and it was very accurate at 600 yds.

Ask Wal-Mart to order it for you.Thats what I did several years ago when I got mine. They still beat the price of my local gun stores, give them a call and see what they can do price wise for you.

Redfield has a 2 piece [b]matte[/b] standard mount that will fit a 10FP. It is listed for the 110 series LA/SA (the Hunter Series, not the FP), but it will fit the 10FP receiver, I verified this with Savage. I also ordered Burris Signature rings in matte finish. They are the only rings I will buy. Look Ma, no marks on my scopes!

Hey, Trick. I bought 2 Bushies from youngsguns.com in Cookeville, TN last month, with NO problems. Don't know if there's any connection with the place in NC. John

Big_Bear, where's Jerry's? That's a decent price you quoted, even with my dealer's xfer fee tacked on. I love this site!
