    I just recently began my interest in long range shooting. Here our some pics of my setup, Savage FCP-K 308 win with a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 FFP. Tell me what you think.

    That's a good gun to get your feet wet. It looks really good, how does it shoot?

    So I have been able to do allot of shooting with my savage. The gun shoots amazing groups I will post pics of the groups I have shot with it. So far I have been able to reach it out to 650 yrds to hit steel plates(I haven't tried anything farther). Again I'm so happy with this riffle and how well it shoots the and its consistency( so much better then my Remington 700 308 TACTICAL VTR with muzzle break):D

    Nothing exoctic but this has been a great load in my FCPK. I used 45 gr with the 168 Hdy. BTHP. Groups are one nice ragged hole!:) Good luck, great setup you have!

    Stockade is a good stock, but if aren't a patient fellow, then you may want to try H-S stocks, or Bell & Carlson. If you want to spend a little more money, then there are options from Manners, and McMillian. If you like the aluminum chassis, then look into McCree or XLR Industries.
