I see cabelas has the savage 10t on sale for $530. I have a savage 16 that I really like. I have plenty of 150gr ammo for it. I've also thought about getting a vanguard 2. Ok, question is do I get the 10t and if so which caliber. 308 or creedmore. Does the 10t shoot 150gr good

What caliber is your 16? I'm assuming it's a 308...either way I say don't get another one of the same caliber, unless your not happy with your current rifle.

"Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it!"

I'm lost. If you have a rifle you like, why change? And it's "Does the 10t shoot 150gr well."

(Mea culpa.)

The 16 is a 308. I'm looking to get another rifle that my son can call his. I do like my 308 and have plenty of ammo for it. The 6.5 creedmore I have heard nothing but good reviews on. It's just something I would have to buy ammo for. I want a solid gun to give to him. Sorry about not discribing my concerns better. I was at my fiancées house.

If 6.5 doesn't catch on like they hope ammo may not be as accessible as 308

No issue with getting another .308. Go for it, ammo is the deal maker for me

I wonder if big oil worried if diesel fuel was going to catch on?

OP, get the 6.5 Creedmoor. You and your son will love it. I've got lots of short action cartridges, and if I had to get down to only one, it would be my 6.5 Creedmoor.

I have a 10T in 308. You will definitely like the gun and if you already have a 308 you should at least consider the 6.5.

Have you ask your son which one he would like? How old is your son?

I wonder if Glock thought the .45GAP was gonna catch on.. or if TC thought the 30TC was going to be popular.

Just joking. The other two were pointless from the start. OP, Get a different caliber than the one you already have. No sense in buying essentially the same thing.

Actually there is plenty of sense in buying the same caliber, since there are two shooters. They can likely find a load that both guns shoot well, which means one ammo type, not two. Also, .308 is cheaper than 6.5. Midway has 129 .308 loads, 9 6.5 loads-much more versatility. .308 is more widely available too if they find themselves short on ammo in a remote location.

Exactly what I'm considering. My son is 23, and likes my savage 16 308. He has a ruger 243. That is why I'm considering a 308. I'll check out the ruger American predator. Thanks to all for the insight
