Whats your thoughts on these?

A friend of mine wanted a set of Cylinder heads that i had and he asked if he could trade his Model 110 7mag for them. He said it kicked way too hard for him and he couldnt hit anything with it.

I figured why not add it to my collection so we traded and its in pretty good shape, little finish worn off but thats character.

He only found a box of empty brass so i might try to find a cheap box of ammo and just see how she shoots. Its light weight i know that much.

I've got one in 300wsm (synthetic model 111), one in 243(synthetic model 116), one in 308 (wood model BTH11)..... the two with synthetic stocks are tack drivers - easily < 1" at 100 yds... having trouble with the 308 still, either a scope issue or cheek weld issue on my part..... :2c:

I am currently lusting after ether a Rem 700 or a Savage 111 in 300 Win Mag.

I've heard nothing but good things about Savage Bolt actions...price performers

The 110 is one of my favorite. I rebarreled one of mine to the 35 Whelen. Turned out to be a great shooter. Got the BBL from Midway. Already had a BBl wrench and action wrench. It was an easy job. Just make certain you get the headspace correct. The 110 can really be tweaked (fun stuff) for your personal desires. Things like free floating, pillow bedding, trigger replacement or easy adjustment of the old trigger. All of my (6) 110's will shoot moa. The only other bolt gun I own is the Marlin xs7c in 308. It is definitely a MOA rifle,out of the box. You can't go wrong with the 110.

depending on the barrel contour and brand, you can do it yourself for between 200-500 with tools. All it takes to rebarrel is a vise with barrel blocks, a action wrench and headspace gauges. You can even find DIY video on youtube .

I reload for everything i have.
I have some 190gr SMK, 208gr Amax, and 210 Berger VLDs that im goin to work up loads for.
I shot it in 7mag before i took the barrel off and it shot ok, that little barrel got hot quick tho.

My experience with all Savage guns that I own including one 110, is that they are built like little tanks. They are tough guns yet simple. Good luck with your Savage.
