I've had a look at Savages centrefire range and I really like the Model 12 FLV...it's left handed with a varmint barrel in .223
 
Can someone tell me how good or bad the Savage synthetic stocks are???

 The factory cheapo's are flimsy and the forearm will flex with a small amount of preasure, that is why the term "tupperware".
 The new accu stock is supposed to be a great help to this problem and cuts out the need for after market bedding. They say it makes a good accurate rifle better.
 A few companies offer composite stocks, and very few offer wood or laminate, especially if you are looking for a long action model.
 IMO if you can find the model you like then go through the catolog and find the next closes one that has a laminate stock from the factory, now you have the best of both.
 Personaly I buy the cheap models with the wanted features, and then restock with the aftermarket laminates, but now you make a $700 rifle a $1100 rifle or more. Also with you being down under after market may not be availiable or affordable.

You should be able to achieve 1-2 MOA with it.  Aftermarket will help get to sub.

My Savage 10FPLE shot match ammunition awesome right out of the box, even with the "tupperware" stock. I did some gunsmithing to the stock... stiffening rod, epoxied forearm, straightened, and widened the barrel channel. After the changes, she shot under 1/2MOA.
 
I am trying to get a new Precision Carbine, and I will let you know how that one does...

I've recently found this mail order place in Australia that can get Hogue (both pillar and aluminium bedded) and Bell & Carlson (Carbelite and Medalist) stocks easily for a reasonable price ($180-$380 Australian). The only downside is the wait of 2-3 months to receive it.
 
I've got some goodies on order at the moment from that place that I thought i'd never be able to get my hands on here in Australia! Big Grin

 Hate to burst your bubble but hogue as of right now only threatens to make a Savage stock. B&C only makes them for certain models and I don't think left hand models are availiable, you have to modify yourself.
 You may be better off going direct to  savage and buy a laminate. I do not know if this helps but here is a number- 1-800-370-0708  ext.6  ask for Effie Sullivan, she is a sales rep with the custom shop, if anyone can help you out it is her. I have numbers for a few after market dealers if you need them give a shout.

Most stock makers don't do the Savage models because they have too many variations where the action screw are spaced. Be sure and what the distance is beween screws before jumping into a stock if you can find one! I have a Savage Weather Warrior in 22-250 and it shoots OK with the tupperware stock. It's tough to do much with these as they are a slick plastic material that glues have a hard time adhereing to.
