I don't know much about the mod 10 in .260 at least, but I can tell you your going to have a really hard time finding anything on the mod12 lrp in .260 due to savage only having released them at the beginning of this month. I've had my eyes on it since I first saw it on their website and had one on order since december, they just made the first shipment and I got mine yesterday. It does have the target trigger group, I thought it was a target action as well but my understanding all the target models were single shot only and I have a mag. Any ways it seems to be a very well built rifle, unfortunately I didn't plan ahead very well and forgot to order a base too. Hoping to get to the range next week for some break in
. I am by no means an expert on lr shooting but I did a ton of research on the .260 and to get the fps I want at the ranges I want 26" is minimum, hoping for an 800 yard dear gun. If your just shooting paper or varmits 24" would be ok, but if your hoping to extend your range for slightly larger game I'd recommend the model 12 if you can find one.
