Re: savage 10 fp problems

Check the firing pin protrusion. It should be at least .050.

If it is it could be dirty or have to much grease or oil inside and is just sluggish.

I have also seen a few firing pin springs that snaked down the firing pin and were dragging
on the inside of the bolt body slowing the firing pin down.

Just a few things to check.

    If the problem was the Accutrigger itself, you wouldn't be getting dimpled primers. The symptoms for Accutrigger issues is usually either the gun going click but not 'bang' and no primer dimples because the trigger is set too light and the shooter isn't pulling straight back, causing the trigger to trip the sear before the safety flag is out of the way, or else the trigger is set too light and the shooter smacks the bolt handle down against the stop/notch, jarring the sear and the shooter finds the safety flag locked up ridgid when they go to pull the trigger.

    Neither case usually involves dimpled primers that I know of.

    What about the cross bolt that retains the bolt head to the bolt body... is it rotated correctly so the firing pin isn't dragging on it as it goes thru?

    It still might be the stock... something could have shifted after a number of rounds, etc. Check for rub marks, etc.

    I'm kinda running out of ideas for troubleshooting sight-unseen over the 'Net...
