Re: Savage 111 LRH 338 Lapua

I'm seeing $895.95 for dealer price. Is that correct?

Lets say, I claim ignorance....

In as much as there are 2 threads running concurrently. the extreme end of the muzzle (behind the brake threading) is... 0.750. Allowing a bore of .350 (.338 plus rifling undercut), the effective approximate wall thickness at the end would be 200 thou give or take or a shade under 1/8".

No. I'm not removing the brake to ascertain the exact diameter. No reason to.

Pricing is what the market bears or the buyer is willing to pay, plus the mandated 10%.

Re: Savage 111 LRH 338 Lapua

As an aside, I just pulled the Picatinny Rail on my 111/.338 Lapua and it is certainly canted toward the muzzle. The serial number on the rail is...EGW108947

Measurements as follows...

Rear pad 0.261 (in the radius, smallest distance, Front pad 0.220" (in the radius, smallest distance. Looks to be close to a 10+ moa cant in 7 inches.

Guess the fellow at Savage I talked to knew his stuff.....

Any thoughts on some good powders to start with. I have RL19 and 22, IMR7828, H1000 and H4831 in stock. Even have an old can of H870 around here somewhere. The expansion ratio of a 338 Lapua isn't that out of wack and I wonder if medium powders like RL 19 or maybe even H414, H4350 might not work quite well with 250 grain bullets and under,

I am also fixing to do some reloading for this rifle. Anyone have any luck with a specific load out there?

Additionally, EGW provides a number of parts for the 111 LRH and the 110 BA. scope mount picatinny rail, muzzle brakes (adjustable on the 110 BA and fixed on the 111 LRH, magazine release mechanism and a few others.....
