I’m looking at the 338 ruger precision 18080 or savage 110fcp 19481. Can’t decide.
I just bought the RPR 338. Have 25 rounds through it get used to it and zeroing the scope. Seems like a well built firearm, fairly heavy but to me thats a good thing. Recoil is just a hair more then my 300 winmag. Found a load that works well but will continue to develope that. Overall I am happy with it. Will be stretching it out this spring when the weather allows me to get to my regular longer range shooting area.
Good input. Sounds about right
I have the savage fcp, i love it. 1" groups at 400 yds.
I have the 338 lm savage le. As you, I get 1/4 shots. ie, at a 1/4 mile my bullets holes fit inside a quarter. I have a few hundred rounds through it and it still holds true. I also have arthritis, damaged joints and a few other issues, just mentioning as it is easy to shoot without worrying about future pains.
