Re: Savage 110 FCP HS 338LM

Well I went a shot it for the first time this past weekend. I shot paper at 100yds. I was able to hold around 1moa. I had one ragged hole goin and 1 or 2 "flyers", still real close to 1" 4 shot group (I didnt measure it with my calipers). I was cleaning the barrel after the every shot, so every shot was a fowler. This is with no load development. I was shooting 89gr H1000 w/ COAL 3.645 (IIRC). The velocity was 2725-2754. I will load up to 91gr, maybe a little more eventually, then play with seating depth. This is short enough to fit in the mag and be around 30 thou off the lands. Recoil was a non issue. It was less than my dad's 7RM shooting 162s at 3040fps (no break). I didn't shoot my 300rum today to compare it against, but I think the 338LM is slighty less felt recoil. I'll post again when I get everything dialed in. I need to re-level the scope and do some load development. Over all I was very happy. The recoil really surprised me. The gun does weigh just under 15lbs with scope and bipod, but it is still flingin a 300gr bullet @ 2740 fps. I'm hoping to get close to 2850, We'll see. Since the pic I've swapped for aluminum rings and am using a EGW HD 20MOA rail. I also added a lace up cheek pad. It helps getting a good cheek weld, but makes it a pain to clean and a little tough to remove the bolt. I can't use my bore guide when it is on.

Re: Savage 110 FCP HS 338LM

I've been really interested in getting one of these. I've been putting it off too long and decided today that I want one...well now I can't find any. Any idea who has them in stock? Also thanks for your time and info on the gun, did you do any further testing downrange?

Re: Savage 110 FCP HS 338LM

No more testing at long range. It is early archery elk season here. I've been helping on some hunts. I also don't wanna go target shooting at any of my LR target spots. A September archery elk tag is a big deal here. I hope to shoot about 10 more rounds at 89gr, then work my way up around 91gr. I may be leaving for British Columbia mid October for 2 weeks to be a pack mule on a goat hunt. I'm going to try and get some stuff done by then. There just isn't enough weekends in the fall. I'll make sure that when I do work something up I'll let you guys know. I have read that you can special order a 110 FCP from Savage, with what ever barrel length you want for no extra charge, just have to pay MSRP. I was lucky and got one of the first ones from Budsguns. I have also learned that Savage ordered a bunch of rails from EGW that are going to be 20MOA. It sounds like they will still be the tactical rail. I would really suggest the HD rail, just to get the scope sitting lower. I still ended up needing a cheek pad with the 35mm tube and 56mm obj using low rings. Without the pad, my jaw bone was on top of the stock for a good sight picture. The only thing I don't like is the shape of the trigger. I prefer a wider trigger. I have been looking for trigger shoes, but haven't found any for a savage yet.
