Re: Savage LRH 111 338 Lapua

Just got off the phone with Savage. They are expecting these to be out at the end of the month. They DO NOT come with 20MOA rails like the 110BA. I suppose Ill bring my rifle to a shop to make sure I get a rail that fits. THe guy @ Savage says that the rail on the 110BA is not interchangable with the FCP model. I asked if they were different actions. He said they weren't but the rails were not the same. I wonder if the 110BA has larger screws or something.

I'm hoping its sooner than later. I was hoping to get the rifle up and running by December. I'm still waiting on genII Berger hybrids. I was told early July for those, Midway has early August listed now. We'll see.

Re: Savage LRH 111 338 Lapua

Well my 110 FCP is payed for and FFL info sent, waiting for it to ship. It sounds like a few online retailers got a few of the new Savage 110s in 338LM. They are selling out fast it seems. My local guy couldn't get a word on when they would be available to him. I'm expecting mine to ship next week. I have 300gr hybrids on order from Berger and Midway. If both of those fall through I'm going to try from shoot-long.com. I am ordering the scope today or early of next week. I'll get the scope before rings so I can measure and see how low I can go. I'm going to have to take a guess on the rail. I'll probably go with EGW Savage long action round back with 20MOA. I'll let you guys know how it works out when all the parts get here. Brass, powder and dies are waiting on the bench.

I picked up the LRH111 in 338 Lapua from a board memeber in a trade. I worked up some loads with RL19 and 250 SMK and shot some rounds at 200yds. I am pleased with the rilfle.

Seems 88 grains of RL19 @ 3.681 is working out. Next I am working on the 300 grain loads.
