Default Savage 10-FP Finally Range Ready!









The scope came in yesterday, and I got it mounted up last night. I really like this Bushnell 3200 Elite Tactical. It's really bright and very clear. So much so I just got off the phone with Bruno's and ordered another one for my Savage 12-F/TR. The only problem I had was the 6-48 tapped holes were full of crud, and no way I could get the screws for the bases in. I took it to a local gunsmith and he told me he had a heck of a time cleaning them out. He had to charge me for the tap he used because it really dulled it beyond further use. I wish Savage would use plug screws on the models they coat with whatever it is they use. I had no such issues with the screws on the 12-F/TR. They went right in. The Burris Signature Zee Rings are a pleasure to work with. They really hold nice and tight without having to lap. Another thing I've found is once you get the reticle adjusted nice and straight, it will stay put without moving. Just tighten away and you're done. The bases are Burris Extreme Tactical Steel. I won't get a chance to get out to the range until next week, but that is fine because by then I'll have the 12-F/TR scoped and range ready as well. I've got a half dozen handloads prepared. I'm anxious to see how they both print. For anyone who is interested Bruno's has the best price on these Bushnell's. Bill T.

Looks good Bill,by the way,killer looking coffee table. Hope it shoots well,it should. I'm waiting on UPS to deliver my Choate Ultimate Varmit stock for my Savage 110FLP in 300 WM. I took my Pentax scope off it and put on another gun,so I'm debating on what scope to buy for the Savage but I'm leaning towards a Mueller for it.

I'm not really sure what the exact type of wood it is. We bought it some years back at a specialty shop. The guy had many items like it. All one of a kind stuff you didn't see every day. Bill T.

I'm hoping to get to the range this Saturday with both it, and my Savage 12-F/TR I just finished mounting the scope on this morning. Both are in .308. They are calling for good weather, so I'm going to get up early and head out with enough handloads to solve the Iraq problem. I've got 6 loads ready to go, so I'm hoping something will print well in both of them. I'll post the results as soon as I can. I wanted to get these rifles up and running months ago, but scope funds were appropriated for two new AK-47's just before the election. It turned out to be a good move because anything AK related around here is all but unobtainable. If you do find anything, it's priced to the Moon. Bill T.
