Savage makes 308 in all their short action rifles, my Savages are a 110s and my Model 11, all Savage long actions (aka 270win, 30-06s 7mm Rem Mags...etc) are three digit model numbers while all modern short actions (308, 7mm-08, 270 WSM....etc) are two digit model numbers. Savages are all good shooters but in my experience they are all bullet picky, that said I have yet to run across one that did not like Sierras so that does not bother me a bit

I was completely sold on a savage for my first bolt action 7-8 years ago. Until I held one.. It honestly felt like a toy gun in the synthetic furniture.

I know the savage guys are going to come and blast this post but its the truth.

I've had my 700 SPS for 8 years with the sporter barrel in 308 and I still shoot 1" with mil surplus ammo. My reload stack easily.. I will admit the SPS stock isn't the greatest but it looks and feels much better than the savages to me.

Best advice I can give do the research and put your hands on them. Make a decision for yourself.. Guns are not one size fits all.

And the 700 does not model the Mauser.. The 70 followed the Mauser.. Remington has a push feed bolt

Savage chambers have tighter tolerances then Remington,my fire formed Remington brass will not chamber in a Savage,running a tight patch up a Savage barrel the tolerances are constant,no free spots when pushing the patch.Yes the Savage ain't going to win a beauty contest!

Both are fine rifles,but I'd buy an older well loved Remington over a new one,seems craftsmanship years back tops the Remington's of today..

I love my savages, but yes the regular synthetic stock is cheap and flimsy. But your paying for a superior action imho. You could do as I have and router out and bed 2 aluminum arrow shafts in epoxy to stiffen the forearm. Its my deer rifle so i didnt feel the need to get a different stock but there are plenty out there.

Lets not forget with the Savage barrel locking "nut",changing barrels or taking up head space problems,is simple with minimum effort and tolling..

Plastic Stocking Belongs On BB Guns!

I have owned several Savages with those flimsy stocks, and while I wish they were nicer they don't seem to hinder my accuracy at all. My 30-06 holds 1/2" with 150gr Accutips/RL19, and my 270 WSM makes one ragged hole with 130gr SGKs/IMR4350 both sit on flexy crap stocks. Remington and Ruger synthetics don't feel any better IMHO. I will likely be replacing the stock on my Savage 11 270 WSM soon, because no rifle looks right with iron sights and a plastic stock, gatta have walnut
If you want to see a GOOD synthetic stock you gatta look at Tikka, theirs is fiber reinforced, strong and ridged now if they would just build one with an inch less LOP.

I have a Remington 700 5r topped it with a Badger Ord 20MOA rail and Badger Ord Extra tall rings that hold a Nightforce NSX 5-22x56mm. I will put that package up against any savage. She will put up 490+ scores any day of the week in an F-class match. I use 185gr Berger's in Laupa Brass with Wolf primers and Varget powder.

I'll shoot my Savage's against your 5R anytime. The 5R's are damn nice rifles,and shoot very well with the right operator behind them,but so do Savage's.

Nice setup you have there,Gunnut.

The 10FCP doesn't have one of the factory tupperware stocks if you guy's weren't aware of that. They come with either an H S Precision,a McMillan,or you can get them with a Choate stock.
Mine has the Choate stock,Ken Farrell 20moa base,Burris Signature Zee rings-Medium,Sightron SIII 6-24x50 MOA-2 scope.
It looks just like this rifle,my 110FLP 25/06-
