...the Savage 10 Precision Carbine is one of the most accurate .223 savages ever built (aside from the Target model 12s of course).
I have a 12 LRPV which is essentially the same rifle as the target rifles except they have H-S Precision stocks instead of the Savage laminate stocks. It's hard to argue with that difference though. It also has a 4" shorter barrel but most think that's a better setup than the target model's 30" barrel because the barrel doesn't have enough weight up front to make the rifle want to tip forward like the target models do. That LRPV practically shoots itself. It is so easy to be accurate with that thing it almost takes the fun out of shooting. Almost.
I wouldn't want to carry it around the woods hunting though.
I have 2 Savage .22's (MkIIBTV and a Stevens 15-A which is made by Savage of course) and a 110 in 30.06 too. I wouldn't want to get rid of any of them. I'll take the 30.06 if I want to hunt anything bigger and I'll take either one of the rimfires for hunting squirrels. The 15-A is a single shot (so is the LRPV) and it's probably taken more squirrels than any rifle I've ever seen. It's been handed down through the family since the early 1950's and it has always been very accurate so it's been a favorite for tree rats.
Savage does make some fine rifles.
