Re: Savage 308 troubles

Ten inch groups isn't going to be something simple like the stock touching the barrel or the factory ammo. Send it back to Savage and they'll make it right. I've got a Savage .308 that I'm quite impressed with and at 200 yards it should shoot 5 shots into a CD-rom sized target even with the cheapest ammo.
