Re: $1000 300 win mag

Thanks for all of the info. I am from Ohio and will be shooting groundhogs mostly around 300-400 yards but can shoot targets further than that. I was initially planning on a .308 but after comparing the ballistics to the Win Mag I cant pass it up. I would prefer to buy a rifle, put a good scope on it, and be ready to shoot. Has anyone shot the Savage model 111 long range hunter? It has a 26 inch barrel, muzzle brake, accutrigger, and accustock. And you can get it for around $850. What do you guys think about it?

I responded to your same post at the other site.

As far as the Savage 111 LRH, used the custom search query on the top right.

I have read multiple forums and people have suggested guns like the savage FCP-K, Savage long range hunter, Remington 700 (sps,xcr, and sendero sf2).After looking at these guns I have some questions. How important is a muzzle brake? Has anyone had any experience with the savage long range hunter? What 300 do you recommend for a somewhat entry level long range shooter (500-700yrds)? I want to buy or build the best 300 possible for $1000. thanks
Totally understand you want turn-key. Here's the other Savage I would look at:

Savage 110FCP HS PRECISION 300WIN $972.00 SHIPS FREE

It gives you DBM and a different stock option. You'll have to ultimately decide what "style" you like better.

Brakes are love it or hate it. Everyone around you hates it. They do a nice job on recoil, but make it MUCH louder.
