It's a shame a poll was not done on the previous thread.

Re: savage 110 BA .338 lapua

had my 110BA out in the weekend hunting on Fallow deer here in NZ

took 4 animals - 220 - 723 - 747 - and 897 yards all with 300g SMK's, all one shot kills.

rifles now had about 200 rounds thought it and seems to have settled its accuracy nicely down to 1.75 inch groups at 400 yards.....so less than 0.5m MOA.

only modification is to remove the redundant rails on sides and front.

heres a photo of the rail mod and a couple of exit holes on deer from the weekend.

Hey man, I just bought one and I am very pleased with it. Recoil is about like a 410 shotgun and it is very accurate.I have not shot it long range yet but I will this coming weekend.

The top of the heap is the AI. I have shot all but the Savage though, so I could be wrong.
every test I've ever seen ended with the comment that this was the most accurate snipers rifle out of the box on the market. Not my comment, but the tester's of course. Now I'll be the first to tell you that I've not read a test on the AR30, and probably never will as I have little interest in sniper's rifles (but of course not against them in any way)

The military once played around with a high tec version of the good old M14 down at Bragg. The action was space age alloy, and the barrel was something that will never rust or loose it's throat. The rifle was pretty light, and was deadly at 1000 yards on every shot. Folks involved in shooting it simply said it was absolutely the most accurate rifle they'd ever seen, and these folks could have any rifle they wanted.

gotta agree with you here. Long barrels become tuning forks with uncontrollable harmonics. But I suppose a guy could do a tuner (note: I'd hate to think about what it's gonna take to build one for the .338 Lapua!!). The weights would have to be made out of Mallory Metal, and even then it'd be nine to twelve inches long. Be a seriously interesting project.
