Re: Another guy needing help

Team:

I have an opportunity to purchase a Savage 110 DL Series H 300 Win Mag. It is a gun safe rifle with perhaps 100 round through it. Would this make a good fist build rifle for LR shooting. I am very new to LR shooting so humor me, I will try to only ask questions that I can not find on the site.

Second, what is the H Series in 110 rifle?

Thanks for the input,

P51

Re: Another guy needing help

I know nothing about Savage. I know that you can change the barrels pretty easily, and the triggers are a strong point. They are a very good priced rifle. Many people have them, and love them.

I love my Remington 700's. I have tried Sako, and Winchester, but have always gone back to Remington. My father just bought a Remington 700 300 Win Mag. We changed the stock, put a Vias break on, and doing some load development. Good Choice on the caliber. You will not know if you like it, unless you shoot it.

Thanks, recoil is not an issue, my short range brush guns are Marlin 336 30/30; Marlin 444S and my trusted Marlin 45/70. All wonderful to 150 yards. The 300 Win Mag is very versatile round, I reload, so will be able to create a load that should be perfect for the Savage.

I was just not sure about the 300 Win Mag round as a suitable LR caliber. The price for the rifle was $350.00

Great price.

If recoil is not a issue, I would go with a 338 RUM, 338 Edge, or 338 Lapua. If "price" is a issue, then I would stick with the RUM calibers. Like I said, you have tons of options, and brass is reasonable. 300 and 338 are my favorites.

The 300 win mag is great too.

One other caliber that is cazy fun is 30-378 and 338-378. These are made by Weatherby. They are pretty inefficent, but fun and fast none the less.

Lots of choices.

Re: Another guy needing help

If the 300 Win Mag barrel shots accurately, would there be a need to change the Barrel to 338?


Also, I was looking for a technical stock that I could just drop the guts of this rifle into. Looked at Boyd s, S&K etc but did not find a tactical syn stock. Do you have a better source?

Also, is there a trigger fix for this rifle that will allow me to adjust to say 1.5 lbs? The current trigger is stock and I have heard that is is very heavy.

Thx again for the insight

Re: Another guy needing help

There is no reason to change the barrel if the gun is accurate. A 300 win mag is a very respectable caliber. Navy Seal Sniper Chris Kyle had the most confirmed kills with a 300 win mag. Remember, you can shoot as large as a 230 grain Berger now!!!

Check out Stockys stocks. They have from soup to nuts as far as stocks go. All of my stocks have alum. bedding blocks in them. They are very accurate. One of my stocks are H & S precision. The other 3 are Bobby Hart Thumbholes with the alum bedding block. They are very nice and accurate.

There are lots and lots of good triggers out there. You need to find one that has all the requirements you need. Timeny Triggers are the ones I have. They work the best for me and I can adjust them easily.
