    I decided to take my Ruger #1 300WM to Cabela's just too see if they would buy it for a decent price.I don't shoot it much anymore and want some other guns.
    Well they gave me what I wanted for it and then I just had to go looking around,BIG mistake. I'm now the proud owner of a new Savage FCP 308 Tactical rifle,along with some brass,dies,etc.

    I'm begining to think the Savage Tactical bug has bit me,now I have three a 25/06,308,and 300WM Savage Tactical rifle. I'm still waiting for my stock to get back for my 25/06,it is the same stock as this 308,they said they shipped it yesterday.
    I'll probably put the same Sightron SIII scope on the 308 that I have on the 25/06.

    Hey you shot the 300 mag,this won't be much different,just a little less gettyup & go.
    It'll be waiting for you to shoot the next meet,along with the 06.

    As you can see it's a right hand,they didn't have any lefties.
    And Lon,that's where I went.

    Nice looking rifle. I think I may be getting the urge to build a tactical style bolt gun.

    Thanks Opaww,I have never had a 308.Always shot either bigger 30 cals,or smaller,just figured I needed one and after what they bought my #1 for it was almost free.So I did alright,I think.

    Hot Sauce,I've got the Sightron SIII 6-24X50 LRMD on my 25/06 Tactical. It is a very nice scope.Very clear glass,almost as good as the glass in my Swarovski PH scope that cost almost 3x as much. It also has 100moa of adjustment windage & elevation. It has a 30mm tube and is a large scope.

    Top gun-25/06 w/Sightron SIII,Bottom gun-300WM w/Swarovski PH

    Excellent collection you have!! Congrats!! on the new Savage Arms Tactical Rifle, nice addition. I've always felt that Savage Arms' products deserve more credit than what they get. Savage products are under-rated, imo.

    Wicked looking rifle. I'll bet you can't wait to see how it shoots. We'll be expecting a range report.
