i don't know if i set up the poll write but here it goes anyways.

Sorry if i'm repetitive, but I have a .308 Savage 10FP. This summer i plan to make one or more upgrades to it. I was curious about what everybody thought I should do to make my rifle better. Also I bought an older model of the 10FP so it doesn't have the AccuTrigger.

These are the items I currently have on my rifle: Harris Bipod, Leupold VX-II 6-18x50 (or 40, i forget) and a sling. If the items on the poll aren't what you would do, please write in your suggestions.

Also if you have sugesstions for a specific item then also write that in.

Few recomendations

Replace the stock = Depends on if you like the feel of your current one

Get a new trigger = Good investment or at least have some work done

Flute the barrel = Good if your trying to save weight and spend alot of time at the range

Install a muzzle brake = Only if the recoil is bothering you. A new stock might help some though

Buy a spotting scope = Nice investment but not needed

Buy reloading equipment = Depends on you. For me some Federal Match works just fine.

Other = A good shooting mat. Its always funny to see that guy at the range with about $8,000.00 invested in his gun (who can't shoot it by the way) lying down on a old blanket or some old beach towel. :D

Put a good trigger on it. Savage makes a great gun, but the triggers that pre-date the Accutrigger stink. The factory supplied stock on your gun is O.K., but if you have the bucks I'd replace that too eventually. You might want to consider a leveling device if you are shooting at longer ranges.

FLEA:

About the shooting mat, a blanket isn't such a bad idea, at least if you intend to practice for more serious tactical shooting, since you need to get used to rough ground etc.

I would say upgrade the trigger and the barrel. The triggers are out of date as K2 said and upgrading the rifle can do some good. The mat I wouldnt really know i shoot on our land so I use the ground.

For the most part i would be inclined to agree w/ FLEA. It all really depends on what this rifle is used for (and how much $ you have to spend). I think a muzzle brake is not needed, but that depends on you. If the stock is really bothering you then you can change it but i dont see that as a first priority. For me accuracy is my primary goal, since I dont have an unlimited budget. A blanket may be nice, but beach towels work well for me. Also, what to buy next for your gun should also depend on how it shoots now, what kind of accuracy are you getting, and are you happy with it. Just as a general opinion, I would go for the trigger and the barrel, I feel these are by far the most important, but I guess that's only if you want to hit what your aiming at. :p

P.S.- I have recently started a .308 project of my own, it has the m24 mil spec. barrel and adjusted standard trigger, but what has saved me a lot of money has been in reloading. I actually have fun reloading and it saves me a ton of money. I would strongly suggest you look into it. I use all RCBS equipment and have been very happy thus far.[/quote]
