Savage 110 BA

I am very interested in purchasing a .338 Lapua and have found that on paper the Savage 110 BA has all the options I'm looking for and at the right price. Recently I have read several reports that the weapon is suitable out to about 300 yards but beyond that it's hit or miss, and 600m and beyond is almost unheard of accurate shots. Supposedly it has something to do with the rifling twist rate and process. I was hoping that someone has had some experience with this rifle in this caliber, and hoping that it was a positive one.

Re: Savage 110 BA

Stick around, and try posting your question on the main page, under the ''long range shooting''thread, or ''the basics/starting out'' thread. Theres a bunch of guys who like Savage rifles that frequent those two threads. Namely a guys like Liltank, Blipelt, and a bunch of others. They'll steer you right for questions on Savage related stuff.

Glad you found L/R/H. Theres a bunch of polite folks here with TONS of knowledge, and theyre all willing to share.

Winmag,

This is going to sound stupid, but I have been on the site for 15 minutes and can't figure out how post this on the pages you suggested and can't figure out how to do it. Could you give me some guidance?.?. I'm dying to get some answers from a reliable source because I was set on purchasing this weapon. I really appreciate your initial response and any other help you can provide.

Sincerely,

hjmwyatt21

Re: Savage 110 BA

Just copy what you have, and then go to the forum you want to post in and use the new thread tab then make a new flashy title and paste what you already wrote. Give it another crack, and welcome!

I think Malinuk (sp?) had one of the early versions for testing, everything I have seen has been positive. I read an article in a mag, I forget which one, but it was really impressive without hand loading for it even. I would get one in second if I could wrestle the funds for it. You can take that monstrous rail system of and put on a regular rail for you scope mounting. There are some earlier threads but I can't find them.
