    My local store is having a sale:

    Should I buy it?

    I already have a M1A loaded, and a Remington 700 CDL in .30-06 for hunting. I am looking to put together a long range rifle in .308. Would you get this or my other choice a Remington 700 VLS .308 heavy barrel.

    Any and all comments on the Savage 10FP are welcome.

    Thanks

    Savage 10FP

    I own a 10FLP model and am pleased as puch with it. Just get rid of the cheap plastic stock and replace it with a high quality composite stock. Spend the rest of the money on a GOOD quality scope and rings.

    The Remington has a nicer action. New X-mark trigger is decent.

    Savage has a large bolt handle. Accutrigger is good if you don't mind the safety bar.

    By the time you get rid of the junk stock on the Savage and buy a quality stock, you're pretty much at the Remington's price anyway.

    I don't think the Savage is a bad rifle. Many are capable of incredible accuracy. But the Remington is also capable of incredible accuracy and has a better action and feels less junky.

    I went with the Remington and am happy. But I don't think I would have been ripped off by going with the Savage. The one's I've shot at the range shoot very well. Both will serve just fine. I just think the Remington is a touch nicer. It's the Savage's bolt design that's clunky to operate that gets me. I know, kind of picky.
