I know that these are fairly new and probably few, if any, have found their way into the hands of FALers, but I have been impressed with the magazine articles I've read and find myself Jones'n heartily for one of these "Tactical" (heh, heh) tack drivers.
What do you'se guys tink?

I have 2-A Model 10FP in .308 and a newly acquired Model 12 BVSS in .223-The 308 will shoot 1"moa or less and the .223 is .3/4" moa and with practice or a better shooter at the helm could easily be 1/2" moa.-I was looking at getting a FN SPR that I could get a good deal on but the cost of glass and quality base and rings was easily pushing $2000.00+
I bought both on the used market and the combined cost of both including glass less than the FN-IMHO a great starter rifle to accessorize and test your skills in the tac rifle dept-Plan on ditching the Savage stock and Bell & Carlson makes a standard nice replacement for $100.00(on my .308) and a Mcmillian A2 clone for $300.00(on my .223-real comfortable but heavy)

I shoot weekly with both and my targets are 3/4" sticker dots @ 100 and clay pigeons @300-easily done by both rifles-I have some feeding issues w my .308 but I'm working it out
I have alot to learn with both these firearms before I even consider moving on to a custom or higher end tac rifle;reading the wind, heartbelt and breathing control,range estimation, and improving on basic skills. Savage opens the door to long range, accurate shooting for the everyday guy-Always nice to pulverize what you fire at
