Re: savage 110 BA .338 lapua

i also looked at a remington 700 police in 338 lapua...i tested this and the savage on the same day....the savage was better on the day....

one interesting thing to note is that the remington magazine is shorter.....my loads at 3.75 over all would not fit the magazine......

my friend has now brought the remington and it is away being re barrelled and fitted with a TRG brake.......this has to tell you something???

I suspect barrel fouling.
It gets very good velocity with 95 grains of H1000 and the 250 Accubond at 3030 fps from the 26" barrel.
I have cut my hand on sharp edges on the extended side rails.

I have a .338 RUM and a .338 Edge built on Remington actions and they are great hunting rifles. This is the way to go, not Savage.
Savage now has the 338 Lapua in an HS stock and in the Long Range hunter configurations, most people have also had very good luck with Savages built into 338 RUM's or Edges. The 110BA is a cheese grater!!

It says your friend prefers custom barrels, which isn't something that is uncommon. I do too. And to compare the two rifles is silly. If you set the Remington up like the Savage behemoth is set up, it would shoot just as well as you perceive you savage does. Heck I have experience with both and the Remington is so close that I would go with that over the savage just because it is a smaller package and you could actually carry that around.

Personally I would get the long range hunter, and put a new tube on it if you must.

Or even better a long action savage target action with a DBM and go to stockade and have a stock made with the AI bottom metal. So far your in it for about 800 bucks inluding shipping. Find a quality barrel threaded and chamber for the savage action and at 1200 bucks you are set for optics.

I just cannot believe Savages ear to their customers. The new 110's look awsome for the money.
