Re: Accuracy of Savage 110 BA
I shot that rifle for the first time a year+ ago, I had never even heard of it. It was zeroed @ 600yrds. My first shot @ target 985yrds= hit. target was a 24x30in rock sitting on a hillside, next 7 rounds all hit the same rock within 8or 9 inches from the first(we went and measured). So for a first time shooter of that rifle, hitting 8 times at a distance i never tryed before 985yrds...I was sold.
Now, I am sure not every 110ba that Savage makes will shoot like that, but it sure was enlightening to do it. I have heard that it needs the 300grain bullet, the 250 isnt enough, and the breakin of the barrel needs to be done methodicly. We did have a failure to extract twice, that was easy to remedy though. I have mine on order, and I cant wait to take it out. for what it costs, it a great first LR/H rifle for me.
