Well, after much research and a lot of feedback from you guys I had decided to get a Savage 10fp. KimberRB and I was out running around today and I found one NIB for $519. That's the best price I had seen soooooo I bought it. Now I need to pick up a bipod and figure out what type of mounts, rings, and glass to top it with. I'm open to any feedback on good glass.

Well, here she is:

Nice gun porn pic's. I like how you laid out the rounds teasing us. I want to see some paper at 300 yards when you find some glass for it. :biggrin:

I have a Ken Farrel 20moa rail with Burress XTR rings and a Super Sniper 10x42 scope. Shoots 1/2 moa with Black Hills match ammo, which features Sierra Matchking 168gr. BTHP bullets.

Well, I just couldn't stand looking at such a nice rifle without shooting it sooo..... i went out today and picked up a bipod and scope for it. They didn't have the 20 MOA one piece base so I went with a two piece Leopold base and high scope rings. I'll probably swap it out with the one piece 20 MOA base later. I've been doing a lot of reading on scopes and, even though I'd love to drop $1500 on a nightforce scope, I went with the Bushnell elite 4200 with the mil dots. Lastly had to get a harris bipod. After I dialed in the scope I shot 4 groups at 100 yrds 2 of which were under 1 MOA. One measured .76 and the other .58. So far very happy with the accuracy out of the box with factory ammo. I did have one issue with it. Most of the time you really have to pull on the bolt to get it to extract the spent brass. I called Savage and they told me to take it in and have a gun smith look at it and they'd flip the bill. I did notice the primer strikes seem to be really deep not sure if that could cause this issue.

Heres a few pics

You can't go wrong with the 4200. Nice looking rig. Someday I'd like to get a Nightforce as well. I like their 5.5-22.

Thanks guys. I got to shot it again Saturday and I LOVE it. I can not wait to get some dies and dial in a load for this rifle.

42.5 grains of Varget, Sierra Matchking 168gr. BTHP and Black Hills Ammunition match brass = 1/2 moa in my Savage 10 FLP.:biggrin:

Of course you should consult a reloading manual to double check any load before trying it.

Thanks DarrellM5. Thats almost exactly what I was thinking but I was looking at Lapua brass instead of Black Hill. I also have some hornady, remington, LC brass I've picked up at the range to play with. May try some of hornady's 168gr Amax and 168gr match bullets as well.

What primers are you using?
