    Damn. That's a lot of cranks on the reloading handle.

    6 creed (burris xtr was swapped back to my 308 and gen ii is on this now)


    My first foray into R700 setups, 308


    Both are remage setups, so no gun smith required. Basically made a savage out of a 700

    Just my no frills Savage 10FCP in .308, shooting FGMM 168s. First group was cold bore, got lazy on the last one but the others were pretty good. I plan to hand load for this rifle at some point but will I be able to improve on this?

    will I be able to improve on this?

    Absolutely. I have a 10FCP-K that I hand load for. Here are some of the results (all 100 yards, Leupold scope set at 18x):

    5-shot group, 42.0gr 8208XBR, 168 gr SMK, .726" x .491" no other notes

    5-shot group, 68 degrees, 42.8gr IMR 4064, 168gr SMK, COL 2.815", .442" X .092"

    5-shot group, 40.4gr IMR 4064, 175gr SMK near lands, .560" x .365"

    Requisite disclaimer: I am not suggesting any loads, I am simply reporting what I have done with my rifle and my methods of reloading.

    When you get into reloading and start experimenting with Cartridge Over-all Lengths (COL or COAL) you will find that Sierra Match King bullets (for example) vary in length quite a bit. Get the devices for measuring using the bullet's ogive. That will usually be +/- .001" variation or less.

    The Savage 10s are capable of surprisingly close repeatable impact point.

    Yep, being new to it I found that out the hard way. I was driving myself nuts trying to figure out why my seating die was so inconsistent. I know better now. Measuring to the ogive restored my sanity, haha!
