Re: Savage 110 BA review/discussion

Personally, i love savage's out of the box accuracy. My 12 in 223 shoots a .325" at 100 with good Hornady ammo all day long. But for $2000 you could get a Surgeon action($1000), Saturn barrel($320), and a B&C stock($250). For a touch more have a gunsmith precision chamber($475) it for you and PRESTO! you have an immensely accurate rifle for just a hair more. Throw some nice glass on top and you're in business.

just my 2 cents

The 284 is to the STW what a tricycle is to a ninja

Yes its probably double the cost of a .243 to shoot or more. Accuracy, 1/2 MOA is achievable Its always about what you want to achieve with the caliber you choose . If your thinking one ragged hole then custom all the way or at least a barrel and trigger will go a long way. There's no free lunch, now where have I heard that before?

Re: Savage 110 BA review/discussion

I say it's 14+lbs of love without ammo and glass... Too much for what I do. And like others have said, if you're going to pay 2k and want bugholes, go custom. Leave the stock stuff alone, brand irrespective.

I do think Savages shoot better than most Remmys nowadays out of the box, but for 2k, custom gets the nod, even if it's just on a doner Sav or Rem action.

If you want 338, I wouldn't go Savage unless you did the factory LRH, HS, or BA, or built on the Sin or Norma cartridges due to COAL. But then again, if I were doing custom 338, the smallest I'd do is Lap Improved... etc, etc...

Re: Savage 110 BA review/discussion

I have had (3) 110BA .338 Lapua's and they all shot well 1/2 MOA or better, but I traded or sold them (because thats what I do)
I have also had a 110FCP it was just as nice but that BA stock is kick AZZ.

My Friend has all 3 110BA's
308, 300win, and 338LAPUA.

He just purchased the 300 win to make the set and said he may sell it since he doesn't have another $2000 to scope it at the moment. so if you settle on the 300 win shoot me a message I may be able to make you a deal.
