Im new here so hello to all,
Im also a greenhorn looking to make my first purchase to shoot primarily for target (and eventually a competition here and there) and possibly some bore/deer hunting on occasion. I was suggested the Savage .308 package rifle 10GXP3 obviously because I have a limited line of credit with the Federal Bank of Wifes. After having done a bit of poking around I am also considering the 10FP which I would spend just as much on but w/o a scope. So, just looking at the two rifles alone how do they compare?
Is the 10GXP3 good enough to get me in the door until I can save for a proper sight/mount/rings or would I be significantly
better off with the 10FP?
Im looking forward to learning and participating with the folks here.
