My test Savage Model 12 FCV shoots the sizzling .204 Ruger. Unlike many new cartridges the .204 was an overnight success story. It’s still increasing in popularity with varmint hunters thanks to it’s mild recoil, flat trajectory and pin-point accuracy. An added bonus for handloaders is the high velocity it develops using a modest powder charge.

Not within my memory has a new varmint cartridge had the immediate impact of the .204 and a lot of the credit for this stemmed from the superb accuracy of Hornady’s factory ammo. In no time at all the .204 had asserted its dominance over the varmint fields and five years on is still stirring up a lot of excitement. But let’s look at a new rifle that’s designed to bring out the full performance of the latest member of the .222 family.

Based on the short action, the Model 12 FCV features the company’s excellent adjustable AccuTrigger which was designed to give shooters a safe, light trigger pull straight out of the box. The rifle has the oversized, pear-shaped bolt handle knob commonly seen on some of Savage’s varmint and target rifles. It also has the single-column detachable box magazine introduced by Savage a few years ago.
