The 10ML-II uses the same bases that all Savage round-receiver short-action Accu-Trigger rifles use. Weaver-type two-piece bases were installed by Savage on this rifle; we used Warne Maxima medium-height quick-release rings to mount a fresh Sightron SII Big Sky 3-12x42 scope. The Savage, using W209 primers and Blackhorn 209, cut several sub-MOA groups with the new 350-grain Hornady FPB bullets.
We loved the looks of the stock, the warmth of it, and the cut checkering. The Savage buttstock is finished off with a rubber plate; no attempt at a recoil pad. Felt recoil was similar to the KP1 and Pro-Hunter.
