A Model 12 F-TR, and a Model 10 FP, both are in .308. Now the fun begins with scope and mount selection, along with putting it all together. I've got some .308 handloads, but I've got nothing but time to hit the press and try and come up with some type of meal they'll both like. I won't be doing any serious shooting with either of them until the Fall when these temperatures break a little. I've got high hopes for the both of these guns, and they are the first Savage bolt guns I have bought. In all of the years I've been seeing them at the range, I really haven't seen a bad one, or an unhappy owner for that matter. Bill T.

It is a little different. Savage made the ejection port smaller on the 12F/TR to keep the action as stiff as possible. It looks a bit like the Stolle Benchrest Action. Bill T.

Mighty fine rifles you have there... I have never owned nor shot any Savage rifles, though I know many who swear by them.

- Have Fun!

Beautiful pair, you've got there. I really like Savages - best bang for the buck - excellent accuracy. I've very seldom heard a negative comment about Savages - from people who have acually owned and shot them, other than the triggers were a bit on the down side - but that has been corrected with the new trigger set-ups. I have a 93 in .22mag, and it is the most consistently accurate rifle I own. Can't wait to see some range reports!!!!!

I hope to have them scoped out and range ready by the fall. Much too hot here to do any serious shooting. 115 today, and all of next week. Once the weather breaks and things cool down a bit, I'll be giving both of them a good wringing out. Bill T.

Let me see now, Savage reputation, stiff action, laminate stock pillar bedded, target grade barrel and crown,
accu-trigger with light return spring. I'll just bet these rifles will shoot fairly good, say 1/2 to 1/4 MOA?
