Does anyone own one of these? I saw it in a gun shop nearby and i have to say...as i was looking into the remington sps tactical for the heavy barrel this savage seems comparable with a lower price tag.   I am very interested and the sooner i get feedback the faster i can go back and pick it up haha.

Anyone? Bueller Bueller?  I think its a one off special deal for Dicks.  I know you all hate dicks, i just want an opinion on this rifle combo.

...eerrr wha?  Sorry, I wasn't paying attention, my
eyes were focusing on her shooting technique in
your signature.

Anything Savage is pretty damn good IMO.  And
like I mentioned before... if it's something you want
and they have it it stock - you buy it.  Because if
you don't, you'll read about it here from a very
happy LIF'er who did.

Back to watching her prone technique...

Peace,

I've never seen the model 11vt and I don't see any info about it on savage or dicks sites so i can't speak about that particular gun. However, I do own 2 savage bolt actions, a .17hmr with heavy barrel and a 30-06 with light barrel. Both are excellent guns, reliable and accurate out of the box. The 30-06 (20 year old model 110) shoots minute of golf ball at 100 yards no problem with factory ammo. Also, the model 12vlp dbm in .308 has been on my wish list for awhile now. Savage is a brand I trust, more so than Remington these days, I don't think you can go wrong with them.

The Rem's, and probably the Savage's as well are SKU's that are unique to DSG. A LGS can not get those exact rifles, even if they wanted to. They may or may not be comparable to what's in stock at a LGS, but there is probably a reason they are less expensive.

Having said that, I had no issues with my 110. I sold it to get an older Rem 700 only because of caliber. I keep finding myself wanting a new Savage with an AccuTrigger. Heard nothing but great things about them.

And sorry, the way that clip is cut, that girl in your sig looks like she's convulsing.

I have 12fvss 308, great rifle, crap stock. Been planning on swapping it to a Choate, but something always comes along.
Mine likes Sierra 168 grain HPBT and 42 grains of Varget.

you know what? If I scroll the page just right I can see it in double.

Excuse me I'll be in my bunk.
Yeah, I have issues. So what.
I find it interesting. As my age, experience, and knowledge expands. My tolerance shrinks

I have a model 10 .308 heavy barrel. I love it. It also has a detachable mag. I do believe a 10 round mag is available for that model.

What kind of groups do you get with it?  How much did it set you back?

Fist size groupings at a 100 yards. With a nikon prostaff 3x9x40 scope. I only have a dozen rounds through it. I'll see if I can dial it in more. But ammo isn't readily avaiable, or affordable at the moment. I got it in a barter for another firearm.

That's a great load... I personally like the 175 Sierra HPBT Match pill.

The FCP-K is a tack driver... with the right ammo, it should
shoot Mickey Mouses.  Maybe think twice before bartering.

There are some very promising reports on these rifles over on savageshooters.com. Here is a post about the 11VT's.

"Saw two of these "Model 11 VT" rifles at my local Dick's, a .223 and a .308. I bought the .308 for eventual conversion to .260 Rem, and took delivery with a Leupold 6-18. Savage SKU on the box is 19939.

These are 24" heavy varmint barrels with Bushnell 4-12x40 scopes, Dick's lists at $599. Savage confirms the .308 has 10" twist.

Gun has an AccuTrigger. Black synthetic stock is unique -- beavertail and three swivel studs similar to a Model 12. Barrel is well floated. Overall, the gun feels heavy.

I didn't realize this was a retailer special until I went to look it up and couldn't find anything remotely like it on Savage's site. I really wanted a heavy barrel 308 for my .260 LR project, and I was pretty close to buying a Rem 700 SPS Varmint until I saw this. Savage makes a better candidate for barrel swaps, so I picked it up."

HTH, Ken
