    I got sweet deals lined up on an FN PBR or a Remington 700 LTR...but there anything else to look at? Are Savage 10FPs any good?

    The only criteria is a .308 and not like horribly expensive.

    Help me out here, guys.

    Savage 10fp's are incredibly accurate out of the box (even moreseo then the 700) and are dirt cheap. However, the factory stock is cheap as shit. The good thing is that there are a ton of aftermarket stocks to choose from if you ever want to upgrade.

    LTR is a better all around rifle, if you're going for strictly long distance shooting the Pss is probably better.

    The LTR is a little more Rare, so when production stops, they may fetch a higher price. My LTR can shoot .75-1 MOA with Nato Surplus. I don't even know how well hand loads would do.

    Visit any sniper rifle board, or hell do a search in WMD and you'll find that the general consensus is that the Savage 10fp is cheaper and more accurate then the 700. Sub .5 groupings are not uncommon.

    Is there any greatly noticeable accuracy between the high priced models of the 700s and the lower more affordable models, or is it more just aesthetics that youre paying for?

    http://www.snipercentral.com/sav110fp.htm :dunno:

    The shitty trigger issue has been resolved, and the new Accutrigger is light years better.

    Don't get me wrong, I was inches away from buying a Rem 700 even with their current hit or miss accuracy from the factory (some people get .5 right out of the box, other gets 1+.) However I decided that I wanted a custom stick built so I went the Savage route. Savage action, Rifle Basix adjustable trigger, Er Shaw 20" fluted barrel chrome moly 10 twist, Bell and Carlson Tac stock, tactical bolt knob, and duracoat over parkerized finish. About $1000 including parts and labor. Shoots .192 MOA with a cheap Bushnell 3200, warne rings and a $3 base.

    I hate Savage with a passion (personal bias) so I would get the 700. I had once for a while, and I loved it.

    Ok, from what i have read, i havent fired a 700 period, but the 700 PSS is the same exact rifle as the VLS, the only difference is the stock and about 200 bucks. the VLS comes with a laminated varmint stock, and the PSS comes w/ the HS Precision stock w/ dual sling swivels. IIRC the PSS now comes w/ a detachable box mag too, although i don't really remember, someone could probably let you know one way or the other.

    I really wanted to buy one but since i had knee surgery recently i haven't made enough money landscaping to be able to bring myself to fork that much over for one.

    snipercountry says that the sendero is also pretty much the same as the PSS but is a long action where the VLS and the PSS are short actions

    Nope. Losok Custom Arms. He's a regular on multiple sniper forums and has built many guns for different members. Mark is a great guy and detailed everything out to me. http://www.losokcustomarms.com/About Losok.htm

    Promised .50 MOA, delivered .192, I'm happy. Chambered for .308.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Savages or in love with Remingtons, it's just that claiming one mass-produced factory rifle is indisputably more accurate than another is a very bold statement :dunno: You can't really go wrong buying either rifle unless you get a real lemon or something.

    the MSRP on the VLS is 859 :rofl: but the walmart website has them listed as 635 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3170202 it's a store only deal but i'm sure if you walked up to them w/the print out they'll honor it, although you have to find a walmart that still carries firearms

    the sendero is 1185 MSRP, no idea what street price is, never really looked into them to be honest

    i have no idea what the MSRP of the PSS is, but my local GM has them at 980, gunbroker has them a little over 700

    I agree. However the reason I stated that the Savage is more accurate is based on Remington's recent issue with such a wide range of accuracy on their 700's. The Savage 10fp is a "safer" option if you want great accuracy out of the box IMO.

    I want a 12FV :o I was going to try to find a cheap LH 700 SA this summer so I could have a good base to start when I got some more money but I have more important things to spend my money on and it's hard to find a deal on LH rifles :hs:

    Good just what I thoguht. :)

    I didnt know if there was better machining on the more expensive models or what.
    I dont need any fancy looking gun or a gun that doesnt do anything more than a cheaper one. Besides, If I were to use it for something concealed someday, like hunting, I would want a dark gun anyways.

    This makes me happy.
    Besides I have a shit job that pays me exactly that

    Just wondered, as SSS seems to be the go to company for Savage work. I considered having a semi custom built, but they wait was too long for my level of patience so I decided to wait for another time. Now I'm looking at having a 6mmBR or .223AI 700 built within the next year or so :o
