Just picked up my new Savage Model 110FCP, HS Precision in 338 Lapua Mag.
Now I have to outfit it with a new scope and select proper ammo for it. Since I do not reload, I will be using factory ammo.
I have looked at many of the forum posts and I am impressed with the quality of knowledge that resides here at Long Range Hunting. Thank you in advance for helping me learn the techniques to be an accurate long range shooter.
I have mostly shot at shorter ranges up to about 500 yards with .30-06 rifles. This is my first long range capable rifle which I will use for target shooting and for long range self defense while 200 miles offshore where I spend considerable time out of range of help from US Coast Guard or anyone else.
Like life insurance premiums, I am hoping never to have to collect on the investment.
Any thoughts on this Savage rifle or appropriate scopes or ammo would be greatly appreciated.
