Savage 110FCP project idea

I have been playing with my FCP .338 lapua, and I am thinking about rebarreling next year. what do you think about going over and truing the action and barreling it in 308 warbird??? would work with bolt and magazine I think, so it would be a really easy fit and would make an awesome long range piece. I have always loved the lazzeroni cartridges. whats everyone think??

Re: Savage 110FCP project idea

This is just my opinion but you would be taking a pretty big step down in performance if you did that. With me saying that, it depends on how far you will be shooting it and what you will be shooting it at. The 338 LM will always have more energy and will also drop a lot less at extended ranges. The lazzeroni cartridges are defiinately some impressive cartridges though.

Well the way I figured it with the warbird and 190 hunting VLD's I would be flatter faster and hit just as hard out to 1000 yards. I know the power of the lapua but I just was thinking this could be a cool cartridge to play with. Any one have a lot of time with the warbird.

My opinion is, since you have lapua brass, if its not trashed, I would go 30x338lm imp, aka 300 hulk or 300ax. 230grn berger otms at 3100 is pretty flat!

+1

A .300 Allen Express/.300 Lapua Imp will give you everything a Warbird will and more. They both have similar capacities but I have a hunch that you could run the Lapua quite a bit hotter before seeing any pressure signs. Plus your rifles already chambered for a Lapua.

Re: Savage 110FCP project idea

there are so many choices I am gonna do a lot of thinking on this. I love my wild cats but another lapua or lapua improved could be really cool. lots of thinking before the next move.

Dragman ,,,,,,,

I would rebarrel it and rechamber for either the Lazzeroni 8.59 (.338) Titan OR the new Lazzeroni 9.53 (.375) Saturn ,,,,, either of which will just blow right by any of the cartridges listed on this thread so far, including the Lapua magnums and wildcat versions of the same ,, see Long Magnum Cartridges ,,,,,,

if you are trying to reduce recoil, then yes, the Lazz 7.82 (.308) Warbird will do that and still have impressive long range ballistics with the 190gr VLD type bullets ,,,
