If you want a factory shooter that would be easier to tote around even though its still about 11#s the Savage model 12 vlp dbm in 308 is an excellent choice for about 875.
Ive looked into building a savage and I dont understand why you would buy a rifle just to throw it all out except for the action...why not just by a savage action?
Also by the time I do that, I could have just bought something like the 10 fcp hs precision, doesnt really make any sense to me...maybe Im wrong?
Well Im either getting the 12FTR or the 10FCP unless I decide on a larger caliber then Im going to the remy 700p or the 110 FCP
