Default Savage 10 FCP-SR or 10 FCP McMillan

Hi,

I was wondering which of these rifles I should purchase, I've narrowed it down to these two:

The Savage 10 FCP-Sr, I can get it for about $1020

http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/model/M10FCP10

- 308
- Heavy, fluted, 24 inch barrel
- Threaded barrel
- 10 Round detachable box mag
- 20 MOA scope base included
- accutstock
- Accutrigger


The Savage 10 FCP McMillan, I can get for about $1130

http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/model/10FCPMcMILLAN

- 308
- Heavy Barrel, 24 Inch
- McMillan Stock
- Accutrigger
- 4 Round detachable magazine


The deciding factors to me are, do I go with the FCP -SR because of the fluted, threaded barrel and 10 round detachable mag, or the McMillan because it had the McMillian Stock already, which I believe is somewhere upwards of $550 if bought new and separate.

Both have detachable magazines, but the SR has a different system that is easier and who's mags are more readily available to buy in 10 round capacity, not that it really matters


Which one is better? I am trying to make a rifle that I can eventually take out to 800-1000 yards.

I would get the McMillan. If your shooting that far away you probably aren't going to need 10 rounds. And if you did shoot it fast enough then your POI may change due to the barrel heating up.

Thats kind of what I was thinking. But isn't the fluted barrel supposed to help counter that?

The McMillan already has a heavy barrel so I don't think it would matter to much. However I only have a basic knowledge and someone else may come by who knows more than I so I would wait for at least a second opinion. I think either would be a good choice though.

I have the Savage FCP-SR. I liked the threaded barrel and the Digital Camo AccuStock.

Cool, how do you like it? What grouping do you usually get with it?

Love Savages, never owned any of their higher end guns only basic 110s and a model 11, I would love to get a precision 308 or 300 WSM. I am always debating between the 10 series law enforcement model or an 11 Long Ranged Hunter, either should be plenty accurate heck even my Wal-Mart special 30-06 shoots 1/2" with RL19 and 150gr Accutips.

The McMillan stock is nice on the 10FCP,but you can also get the same rifle with a HS Precision stock,or if you have a Cabela's near you,they have an Exclusive 10FCP with a Choate Tactical stock. I have one with the Choate Tactical stock,and liked it so much I put another one on my 110FLP 25/06.
The McMillan stock is more cosmetically pleasing to the eye's,but I've never seen where it's any better performing than the HS Precision or Choate.
I paid $650 for my 10FCP with the Choate stock at Cabela's a few years ago,and it's a great shooting rifle.





You can get 10rd mags from a couple different guy's that work with the factory bottom metal,and look factory.

I think it is a fine rifle. Very well balanced, and solid. Of all the Savage's I have owned, the 10 FCP-SR has the smoothest bolt action to date.

As for grouping, even with my average marksmanship skills, I can hold 1" groups at 100 yards using factory ammo with 147-168gr pills (I currently don't reload at this time). That goes out to 2' groups at 250 yards.

My local gun range only has lanes that go out to 250 yards, so I have yet to try anything real long distance with it....

The wife has my 10fcp-sr now and its a sweeeeeet shooting bolt gun. It will put all 10 submoa at 300 yards fast as you can shoot them. Second mag it opens to to moa or a scootch over due to heat. I think the fcp-sr is the better deal. The bottom metal and mag is about a 400$ option toss in a threaded barrel and its prolly one of the best bang for your buck bolt guns out there.

We havent seen a need for any stock but the one it came with. Its bedded well from the factory and fully functional. For a long barreled rifle and heavy barrel its pretty lightweight.
