The muzzle break helps disperse a lot of the gasses to help reduce the amount of recoil, it helps a lot and simply looks bad ass too. there aren't many other features to it but if you have a choice go with the muzzle break, the only downside i see to it is its twice as loud than the 10 fp. Overall the 10 Fcp-k is probably one of the best out of the box guns you can buy.Loz223 said:Can someone please tell me their thoughts on the muzzle break on this rifle. I'm comparing it to the Mod 10 FP and wondering if the extra features are beneficial and why?
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.Red Monkey said:If you need a muzzle break to 'reduce recoil' on a .308 rifle you need to go to a lighter caliber. Recoil from the .308 in an 8-10 lb rifle is not much more than the 5.56 from a light weight AR-15. Especially with the nice soft recoil pad Savage offers on the M-10 PC.
Just my .02 worth.
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.Sorry, to bring this thread back. Curious what mount came factory on the FCP K .308? Is it a 20moa or 0moa?
