    :nod: I just got back from the range and my first shooting session with my new 10FP in .223. It's a shooter! .5 at 100yds with factory ammo! I can't wait to see what I can do with some handloads.

    I'm a hardcore Savage owner, I own several, that's all I buy. About a month ago I purchased a 10FP 223, and have just finished breaking the barrel in. My 5 shot groups have been real good, both at 100 and 200 yds (.315 at 100 and .75 at 200) are my best so far with handloads.

    The only real thing that bothers me is it has a rough bore. The accuracy starts to drop off after about 10 rounds. Then I have to clean and remove the copper fouling.

    The 110FP 308 I have is the same way. I'll probably Fire Lapp both of them eventually. Good luck. :D
