Savage 110 Predator 6.5 x 284 Norma

Seriously considering getting one of these. I want something for antelope hunting and deer hunting, and I just want a new toy.

Does anyone have any experience with this model and/or caliber?

Planning to reload and use 140 Bergers.

What brass is best?

Never used the Accustock but my other Savage shoots lights out.

Any input appreciated.

Ryan

I don't have any experience with the savage but I do have some with the 140 bergers out of a 6.5x284. Great bullet works great on game and go with Lapua Brass.
Hope this helps.

I don't have the predator model. Mine is a 110 regular with a McGowen barrel. It is my go to rifle for anything short of an elk. I shoot the 140 Bergers and it make little clover leaf groups at 100 yards. Nice to shoot, doesn't kick much and knocks the snot out of whatever you hit.
Can't go too far wrong with what you're looking at.
