Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

A friend of mine has a 7mm in the savage modle 111 LRH it liked retumbo and re-loader 25 with fedral 215-m primers with the berger 168-g VLD and then do a bullet seating test usally those bergers like a longer C.O.A.L..........You said something about bedding the action that gun has a alum-fiberglass stock.A 1 PIECE DNZ scope mount also works good on that rifle. try some of these loads and repost here I think you might find something there you really like. good luck

Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

Hate to hear bad stories. I have 3 Savages and all so far have been good. My lil 17 hmr is nice, my 204 in model 10 varmint is awesome and shoots bug holes with factory hornady ammo at 100. My latest acquisition is a model 116 6.5x284 and should be quite similar to the 111 LR. Accustock and trigger. Everything seems fine with the new one. I put a picatinny rail on it and flug some lead. Hope there are much more good then bad stories coming down the line.

Tried many different loads at different depths and torqued all the screws and nothing happened still. Finally sent it off to get bedded and will see what happens next.
Sorry to hear your bad experience.

Just curious, what kind scope rail and rings are you using?

Reason I am asking is that on my 12LRP, I use a Weaver tactical 20MOA base and Burris Sig Zee rings. I had to adjust the scope windage 1.8 MIL to the right to sight it in. I have never seen any gun off by this much. It seems the holes on the receiver maybe misaligned.

A few people in this thread also report misalignment issue. Wondering if it is a common problem in factory Savage, or Remington for that matter.

Its a warne 20 moa steel rail and a vortex pst scope with brownells steel rings. Definately didn't expect that.

Wow, these are really high quality mount.

I am thinking about getting a steel rail. Does the Warne 20 MOA rail have a recoil lug that goes against ejection port of the receiver?

Thanks.

Kevin

The holes are drilled straight. But they are drilled before the action is heat treated. It's the heat treat that is making the action come out of alignment.

Some actions are worse than others. You can send it to SSS to be straightened.

Make sense, thanks for the explanation. Who is SSS? Savage Service?
