    Hi all,

    My first post on the forum.:)

    I'm from the Northern Territory in Australia, I've been reading info from the site for a little while now - a few months.

    I've always wanted to own a 'long distance' rifle and so here it is:

    Savage Tactical 10FP .308
    Lynx 3.5 to 10 X 44 (NATO Reticle)
    Vaais Brake
    Warne 20MOA rail and rings
    HS Precision Stock option

    I just love it, now working up some hand loads very nicely thanks:D.

    The articles and details here helped me make a decision on what to build, so thanks all. I've got a great rifle for many years to come!

    So far, I can engage out to 500mtrs with ease (actually it can almost be called: monotonous regularity). So, after shooting in a competition with my brothers custom 6.5X47 Lapau at 600 yards, I'm HOOKED!

    I'm going to try 900 in the near future.

    Welcome to Long Range Hunting.;)

    Great looking gun you've got there. Sounds like it's a shooter. When you stretch it out a little longer let us know how you do.

    Thanks for the Welcome

    Hi there ss7mm,

    Thanks for the welcome. Looks like you are in a nice part of the world (checked out that neat feature: map pins) I imagine there is some great shooting there for sure.

    Yes, I'm stoked with the Savage, as I built it up from a very modest budget and I believe it rivals some of the so called 'Tactical' expensive rifles we have here at our local rifle club - especially price factored in:p.

    I was most impressed when a new shooter was along side of me at the range with a multi-thousand Accuracy International rig and couldn't stop ogling the Savage, and after having a shot with it the grin on his face was priceless (oh yeah the muzzle brake is amazing at reducing felt recoil)
    I guess it just looks the goods - I'm so happy.
