    Just my .02 worth.
    the gun itself is pretty light for a .308, weighing just under 9 lbs, and any shooter would know a lighter gun means more kick but with the addition of the muzzle break it changes it from a kick to an slow push, because of this i am able to keep my sight pic on target at 200 meters at 14x with some practice, when i shoot my friends 10 fp it has a noticeable difference in recoil, it takes much longer to recover from shot to shot. So my reply to re monkey, not saying you said anything wrong or anything, with the "reduced recoil" i'm able to hold my sight picture, and recover much faster than with my friends.

    my drill was 4 shots into a 1.4 inch group in under 10 seconds at 200 meter, so for me the muzzle break helps in such situations

    I notice the nice fluted barrel in the picture... Is that the standard offering ? or an upgrade?

    Is it in a standard "Accustock" or Tupperware stock as many call it? I had fine luck with my 12FV in the tupperware stock despite it's terrible flex but it seems a shame to put such a fine barreled action into such a sub-par stock.

    Re: Savage 10 FCP-K

    I have a new 10 FCP-K in .308 and when I was installing a EGW 20 moa HD one piece scope base I found that the top of the action wasn't true.
    I then took a straight edge and confirmed it was the action and not the base.
    In order to make the base lay nice and flat on the action I had to take JB weld and bed the front portion of the base The action isn't off much but just enough that the base needed about a 64th of a inch thick of bedding material to make it lay flat.
    I am just wanting to get your experiences with scope base installation on these rifles as in my research it seems that it is not uncommon to have to bed scope bases to these rifles.

    I really don't want to have to send my 10 FCP-K back to Savage unless my rifle is the rare odd ball that has this issue.
    What do you guys think ?
    Thanks

    Re: Savage 10 FCP-K

    I purchased a savage from a friend a few weeks ago and he really didn't have any idea on what model it was just that it was a 10fcp. I have been looking and this is the closest one but I do not have the muzzle break on it. It is a tan accu stock with the heavy flutted barrel, could you get the 10 fcp-k with out the muzzle break? Thanks for all the help will post pictures later on if need.

    I am pretty new to bolt action rifles so I hope you don't mind me asking how you would go about finding out what type of action it has, what the hole spacing is and is there any way to tell if its an accu stock with out pulling the barrel and action off?

    I believe it is when I use a flash light and look down under the barrel I can see a peice of silver, does that mean its an accu stock?

    Thank you for the help,

    And just an fyi I found out it was a "Mod 10FCPS Desert Tan (AT)"

    Re: Savage 10 FCP-K

    Hello everyone, new to the forums here, and just picked up my Savage 10 FCP-K .308 today. Is there any one specific scope base that works better on this gun? I purchased a Weaver scope base for it today and when I put it on, the action would not move, so I loosened the screws out and It freed up a little, but was really stiff and hard to work the action, If I remove the base, it all works great! and the front barrel side screw hole is to shallow for any of the screws to fit in it.. I feel like a retard not being able to make this thing work with 4 screws... Any ideas or tips you guys might be able to lend me? Also, are there torque values recommended for those screws? Hoping to get this lined out soon.. My trigger finger has been itching like crazy ever since I ordered this gun!

    ...Depper...

    Sorry, to bring this thread back. Curious what mount came factory on the FCP K .308? Is it a 20moa or 0moa?

    I bought mine new a couple of months ago. It did not include a base. I purchased an EGW 20 MOA picatinny base to put on it. I mounted a Vortex Viper 6.5 ~ 20X44 scope with BDC reticle using Warne Maxima rings. My load of 39.0 grains of H-4895 and a 168 grain Nosler Custom Competition bullet gives 2412 fps according to the manual. Not a hot load but the maximum distance my range permits is 350 yards which I easily reach. I'm sure it's good for 500 yards at least.

    The AccuTrigger has been reduced to it's lowest setting and is really nice and crisp. Age and arthritis has made my ability to grip the swept-back grip difficult so I bought aa H-S Precision vertical grip stock for it.

    The picture below shows 3/4 inch dots with two shots in each. Green, Blue, Red at 100, 200 & 300 yards respectively. The penny group was at 350 yards. I shot the same targets again a week later and while I didn't do quite as well, I still maintained 3/4 MOA which I don't think is too bad.

    Doubs... it seems like that's the 5th time or so that you've posted that picture. How many rounds do you have through the rifle since that photo was taken? Above you mention that you couldn't manage better than 3/4 moa a week later, but you keep posting that same picture of the 1/4moa performance. I'm just wondering why you keep posting that image?

    I'm willing to bet a lot of internet persona's would take a pretty nasty hit in credibility if a 3rd party followed them around and posted their performances each time they shot. You shouldn't get so hung up on a single image and trod it out every time you talk about your rifle. Instead, go shoot some NEW targets and post them. Not cherry-picked, but real results.
