Re: Savage Model 10

Is yours the model with the top/side bolt release ? If so then buy a choate tactical stock, or GRS beserk model 12 and sell your stock on usedguns. If it has the bolt release in the trigger guard then the grs model 16 will fit.

Re: Odd barrel

If anyone is rebarreling a savage you can get machined sharp shooter supply recoil lugs in stainless steel from Brownells and they will ship them to Australia. both large and small shank. SShooter supply will not post here but brownells will now, although they didnt a couple of yrs ago. A great idea...

Re: Odd barrel

This is only a guess but even though you can look down the hole at the target maybe there is a slight bend in the hole over the last few inches that is difficult to see. Surely it would only need to be a few percent off . The end of the hole may not be dead centre with the end nearest your eye, even...

Re: Canadian F-Class Nationals 2017

Re: Barrel twist rate

I am also using a 10 twist barrel in a 308 at the moment and it works very well. Also using berger 155.5s. If you were toying with the idea of ftr as well this would be a safer bet.
