Im still debating on which precision rifle and for a 308 Im actually thinking of the long and heavy Savage f/tr for a "sniper" rifle (ya i said sniper lol) or even a medium/long range hunting rifle. I wouldnt be hauling it up and down mountains and through canyons but Im sure I could handle it on an simple deer hunt or two if I wanted. I dont shoot competitions and dont plan on it, but I think for $1000 this looks like an excellent long range 308 Originally I was going to consider their 10/110FCP hs precision in 308, 300 or 338. Im pretty set on getting a savage just cant decide which model. I do want something with a heavy to extra heavy bull barrel thoughts?
