Hi all, I'm new here and just wanted some thoughts on my Savage 110.
Let me just start by saying that I'm going to be reloading very soon, so my loads will just for this gun. I do have a new Remington 700 7mm rm that my kids like to use when we hunt, and it will be built up later.
My Savage is a 7mm rm as well. I bought it a couple of years ago, and lets just say it was in bad shape. It did shoot decent for a while, but now the scope is no good and will need to replaced. The barrel is in worn and will be replaced as well. I know that there are better guns to build up, but I am a diy'er if at all possible. I want to build this one to do 4-600 yrds confidently. I will built the Remington to be a great shooter but not now.
With all that said what I would like to find out is, what would be a good scope at a decent price, would like a 3 or 4x12 40mm or bigger. Also what would be a good barrel to buy for this gun? I've found one for $200, but don't know what else is out there. I would if nothing else salvage this Savage for at least a brush gun.
My main hunting area is 50foot on a bluff with about 1000 yards to my left about 150 to 300yrds in width, then about 300yrds by 175yrds. I don't want to get to carried away with the Savage, but i will with the Remington later on. Thanks for all the help.......
