Re: Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget

Found a used savage 116 cabelas edition for $550

"
Savage® Arms Long-Range Stainless Fluted Barrel Rifle
(SKU 03206552)
Cabela’s-exclusive 24" fluted stainless steel barrel
Adjustable AccuTrigger
AccuStock bedding
Available in magnum chamberings
Cabela’s and Savage partnered to build a long-action rifle loaded with features for long-range hunting precision. Features include: a synthetic AccuStock™; an adjustable, sweet-shooting AccuTrigger™; and, best of all, a 24" stainless steel barrel with the tight-grouping accuracy that’s made Savage rifles famous."

Wondering if this would be a good economic choice?

In what caliber. If its in a caliber you want it sounds real good. Especially at that price.

Re: Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget

for building a custom long range rifle does it matter if you use a stevens 200 series action or a savage 116 series? are they basically the same?

Re: Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget

I think the OP started with a Stevens action
Not to start anythin but If I was going to build one I would start with a Savage Edge or Axis in 06 and make a 6.5 Sherman. I would put the bulk of money into a real good barrel. Put a Boyd's Laminate thumbhole on it.

Re: Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget

Great article. I got a Savage 110, long action, turned it into a 338-378 Weatherby. Holland muzzle break, Lilja barrel, Accutrigger. Boyds varmit thumb hole stock. Next up is glass, the scope is probably a turd. Even if it works, the image is terrible @ hi mag. Hope to be shooting it in a week or two. This article got me started on the Savage, as I found it to be long enough for that big cartridge. Got the bolt face for the Lapua and away we go! Really excited.

Wow, I had no idea the 110 action was that big. . The 378 is a pretty big case. .
I've thot about building a 378 . If I came across a big Ruger or a CZ550 in Rigby I would seriously consider it. Build a dual purpose close range bear rifle and long range rifle in one. . Puta 10" twist barrel on it and a good size muzzle brake . .
