    My final review and opinion on the Savage 111 Longrange Hunter.
    After about ten different load and bullet combos I found that the rifle would shoot 3/4 moa at 100 yards. And at 1000 yards w/0-15 mph gusty winds it held .8-1 moa. I am very impressed with this rifle. Especially considering its a 1000$ factory rifle. I would recommend it to anyone. As I have many custom rifles and this one is almost as good. Other than the barrel is smaller and will heat up quicker.
