The action is the same, last year you could have had a model 12 in WSM cals but they dropped them this year. The 12 varmint has a lighter (1.5lbs) accutrigger but I'm not sure about the 10 predator, the bolt handle is the same the barrel on the 12 is heavier and 26in as apposed to the 24 in of the 10.

2. This sounds like a solid accurate shooter. Does anyone have any negatives or positives about this setup?

None, buy it now!!!

3. Is the accustock worth the extra money?
If you buy a non accustock that isn't wood you will need to through it away and get a good one. I tried all the tricks on my Model 12 fvss in 270 WSM and then ended up getting a B&C medalist and trust me don't waste you time with the tupperware stock, bed that bad boy in a quality stock and don't look back.
I have yet to tear down one with the Accustock but I have heard that if you don't really tinker on things it works very well. For me it's not worth it cause I'm dropping it in a better fitting stock anyway but I reeeeaaaaalllly like the looks of that Max 1 predator, it is the Model 12 in a little lighter faster package. buy, buy, buy!!!!

Re: Savage model 10 predator hunter max1

hey guys,

I actually bought the savage model 10 predator hunter max 1 in .243. shoots awesome.. sub moa with 100grain game kings. However, I hate the stock.. ugliest thing I have ever seen. I have called stocky's and they do not carry a stock that will fit it. My question is ... can i have a wood stock built specifically for my gun or do you guys know of a stock that will fit it?

Thanks for the help

Re: Savage model 10 predator hunter max1

Hey bud, I feel your paint on the predator stock. I've had PHMax1 in a .260 for about a year. The gun will shoot better than I can. I just started working with it this fall and just put a coyote through obedience training with it, "lay down!.... Stay!... Dont eat deer!.... good girl..."

Home - Stockade Gun Stocks

Stockade will make a replacement stock for the action on the PHMax1. I email'd them and they got back to me quickly and said they could do it. I have not ordered one yet but probably will this winter. There are not many options out there for replacing this stock.

The accuracy on mine is good with the factory stock but have stubby arms and the stock was too long for me. I shortened the stock and replaced the factory recoil pad, the factory pad must be meant for larger calibers than the 260.

I'm interested on how you do with you .243, I like it!

Re: Savage model 10 predator hunter max1

I have the Predator in 22-250, Accustock and trigger. I had intentions of replacing the stock but when I saw how well it shot I just left it. The only thing I did was to open up the stock channel where it was making some contact with the barrel in one spot. Been using it over two yeas now and it shoots just about everything I feed it into one ragged hole! Hand loads and factory ammo. I went through the same thing with my LRH in 6.5x284 but the Accustock on it doesn't have the wedge design in the bedding block. No bedding problems with this rifle either which is also a great shooter. It's important to not torque the bedding screws over 40 in/pds.

Re: Savage model 10 predator hunter max1

Old post I know. I will explain the difference between both actions. A Model 10 is an open top action whereas the model 12 is either right or left port and not an open top. The model 12 action tends to be more of a target action due to it being more rigid because of the added support.
