I was looking for a factory rifle with a heavy barrel, short action, something I can build up on if I wanted to. Another great feature of a Savage is that I'll be able to change my own barrels with a few tools I need to buy. New barrel when needed or new chamering if wanted. I'm new to the long range precision shooting and if it's not for me I'll be able to sell what I have and not get beat up too bad.
I'll be mostly shooting paper 100, 200 yards and eventually 1,000 yards. These distances are offered by a local range. I don't own land or know someone with enough land to go out past 1,000 yards.
The other Savage rifles I was looking at was the model 10 FCP-K, .308 heavy 24" barrel, accu trigger and accu stock. I was also looking at the model 12 VLP in .243.
I talked myself out of .308 because I already have one, and my .300 WSM will outshoot it. I wanted a .243 but didn't find one that fit the bill for what I wanted.
