    Savage 10FCP 308 24" heavy barrel 1:10 twist, Choate stock

    My very first group after about 5 rounds to dial the scope in. I'm a very happy shopper!

    Good job. I have the Savage 10FLP and it shoots like this. These rifles give a lot of bang for the buck.

    I'm very impressed with this rifle, I knew I would get under .5 MOA with some GOOD 168+ grain match. But this shocked me because I was shooting a $17 box of PPU 168gr HPBT lol! I was only using it to start breaking in the barrel and dial in my scope.

    If anyone is on the fence about what stock to order for their rifle. I definitely recommend this one, I was having a hard time deciding and being so much cheaper than others concerned me, but it's been a great stock and is very customizable, cheek height, and length of pull. Also really like the large palm swell, feels very comfortable to shoot.

    With the full aluminum bedding block and how comfortable it is to shoot I don't think you will be disappointed with the performance of this stock at all.
    I do know that the Savage/ McMillan combo ISN'T as accurate right out of the box as this set up because that combo has NO bedding done and the range reports don't lie. However a good glass bedding job would change that completely. But once you add in cost vs. performance, I think I will just stay with the setup I have!

    Oh I know what you mean! I will be painting mine as soon as I have gotten some better quality glass on it that I know won't have to come back off to be replaced.

    AndrewJ03, does your rifle look something like this? This is my Savage 10FLP, which is the left-handed version of the 10FP. This rifle was a tack driver right out of the box with factory ammo. A 168-grain Hornady A-Max with 41.5 grains of 4064 behind it shoots real nice from my rifle.

    bigdaddy573, I am thinking of painting the stock on my rifle. What is the best type of paint to use?

    I've never had a factory stock on mine, but I'm sure it's the action and barrel
