If you need reviews on the LRPV, check out .204ruger.com, there are several guys using them over there, in .204 at least. I've shot one in .223, and it was pretty handy, I liked the right bolt/left port setup.

One of my buddies bought a Remington XR-100 varmint rifle, and an LRPV, shot them both a good bit, and sold the Remington to buy another LRPV, as his son claimed the first one. He became a true believer. He had fits trying to find a good load in the Remington, never did, in fact, find one he was happy with, but the first stuff tried in the Savage was way under a half-inch.
Now they are trying to wear them out shooting prairie dogs.:cheers:

If your not going for looks, the fvss is a shooter.

Honestly, the wood stocked guns are better, the tupperware stocks are pitiful. I usually buy the cheapest rifle and put on a B&C Duramaxx stock, which are a lot stiffer. The new Accustock might be another matter, but I haven't seen anyone using one on their PD rifles, so I can't really say much about them.

I think the VLP (Varmint, Low Profile) is Savage's best stock, by far. Good laminated stock, NOT built like the BVSS 3x6 lumberyard stock, the VLP actually fits humans.
The LRPV uses an HS Precision stock, so it doesn't count here, but the FV, FVSS, and other synthetic Savage stocks bend pretty easily, and rub against the barrels pretty often, which will throw a shot into South Carolina, if you're trying to shoot groups or prairie dogs, for that matter.

That's probably why Savage came out with the Accustock, to get rid of the older Tupperware handle. I like the VLP stock best, but for my uses, the Duramaxx stocks work just as well, for half the money. All three of my Savage Varmint rifles are in Duramaxx stocks. I'd suggest waiting until Midway has a sale, buy the cheapest one (usually $89) and some Krylon, and make it your own.

I got lucky then... I've viced mine and got right at 1moa groups just using winchester whitebox ammo which is good enough for me.
Mine will shoot even if I cant. :D

I borrowed my buddies 12fv in 204 a couple years back to take to NE to shoot some prairie dogs. It is a flat out shooter. Trigger is smooth as butter
