Savage 111 Long Range Hunter 338LM

I am on the verge of getting a Savage 11 Long range Hunter (338 Lapua Mag) and was wondering if the magazine length will be an issue if I want to load the Berger 300 grain 338 bullet close to the lands.
Does anyone have any experience with this bullet in this rifle?

Thanks Guys.

    338 lapua, Oh yea were can you get them ? I called savage back in july and they said it would be a month or so till they released them . I check with my dealer in september an they still werent available yet . Now I see savages web site and they went up in msrp . I have not seen them at the local gun shows over the last 3 months. Have you actually seen them yet or heard of anyone shooting them? I am really curious about this one .I may need to make credit card payments [ lol ]. I heard that the guys that have the 110 ba 338's really shoot good. I , myself, wanted the 10/110 FCP HS in 338Lapua. I know the factory barrels alittle short for this cartridge, but thats what kreigers for.

    Did as trade on here for LRH 111 338LM and love it! it shoots great with both 250 and 300 SMK's. I put some pics up on the results I had also note I am shooting both at suggested COAL and getting great results. The rifle is a touch front heavy but feels good, love the adjustable cheek rest, and the break makes this thing fun to shoot.

    Thanks guys, just wondering if I loaded the hybrid 300 grain Bergers to just touch or be .010 off the lands of the savage would that COAL cause issues with the cartridge not having enough room in the magazine?


    anyone out there shooting the Berger Hybrid in the Savage 111 Longrange hunter?

    Thanks

    There has been one sitting down here at the local gun shop for a month, hunter version that is. They look a little odd with the smaller stock and the long barrel, but im sure it will shoot Great! My HS version is a shooter!!!

    One of my suppliers has a couple of the LRH 111 in 338 Lapua in stock. I can do $980 + actual shipping if anyone is having trouble finding one.

    The link to the ad above is a cash price, card price would be $1,010 on that site.
