I have the M10 with an 18" bull barrel with the oversized tactical bolt handle and accutrigger. I think it was their "Tactical" model which may have been discontinued or so I was told by a guy at Cabelas. Mine came with the synthetic accustock which didn't work for me. The stock was way too small and flexible. I bought the Choate stock which fits me perfectly. The gun is very accurate. I have no problem grouping less than an inch at 100 yards. My kids love it when I shoot pennies at 100 yards. I don't have access to anything over 100 right now so I can't say how it does past 100 but it has no problem stacking rounds in the same hole at 100.

I would go with the 10 FCP just based on the threaded barrel and 10 round mag. And use the extra 100 bucks to buy ammo. IMHO

What's the concern with a 10 round mag? I've got a 4 round mag and I normally feed the rounds one at a time when I'm shooting. Can't imagine I'd ever need that many rounds with this rifle.

Just a nice addition, you never know when you may have to hold off a bridge from many an enemy

But in all seriousness, it's not necessary, just something nice. I'm more interested in the threaded and fluted barrel

IMHO, having more rounds in the mag will never hurt you. Unless you have a super long one that sticks down below your bi-pod, or hangs in the dirt when you're trying to shoot prone. So for that, you get a smaller mag. Barring these 2 situations, which I rarely come across, I'd rather have less mags of high capacity available. Nothing says you have to us the entire capacity.

I've been using the 10 FCP HS-Precision now for several years and can't say anything bad about it. It too has a heavy barrel.




And it's a shooter....one of my targets from when I was working up handloads. It likes Varget powder and Sierra MatchKing bullets.

Well,They may be justified biased opinions.
Like I said earlier,The McMillan is a nice stock,but really doesn't offer anything better performance wise than the HS or Choate tactical stocks.The McMillan does weigh less than the others,but at 2-3x the cost.
IMO,Manners builds a much better stock than McMillan.

True, I wish that I had a cabellas near me, I would get the choate stock. I'll probably just go with the FCP-SR
