Re: Savage 110 fcp HS 338 Lapua Accuracy

just curios, have you guys ever had to adjust your loads as round count on the brass increases?

Wow, that's a nice setup and some outstanding shooting. I've been thinking about buying one of these rifles for a while now and have struggled to find both accuracy based range reports and a commonly accepted list of components that deliver on the accuracy. Thanks for sharing the information and I'm definately jealous right now!

Thank you, my dad couldnt make up his mind between the fcp or the long range hunter and i told him that the better stock and the extra weight on the fcp would probably help accuracy. It weighs 14.2 lbs loaded weighed on a bathroom scale
