    7mm rem mag is a long action. All long actions stocks will interchange. I take it yours is NOT an accutrigger so again any long action stock will fit. Even if it were, its only a very simple trigger clearance issue you can touch up yourself. sharpshootersupply.com

    Since your 110E is a sporter barrel, the new stock would look better with the same channel inlet.
    A heavy barrel channel will fit but not look very good. If you do get a heavy barrel for it someday, you can enlarge the stock's barrel channel then, not a big deal.

    To be safe, measure the center to center spacing of your action screws [the ones that hold the stock to the action]. It should be 5.062", which is a long action.

    Hey no problem. A hunting rifle has a fairly small diameter barrel and a target rifle has a fairly large diameter barrel. The portion of the stock that is profiled for the shape of the barrel is also known as the barrel channel. The stocks for each reflect the diameter of the barrel. If you order a varmit/tactical stock it will be made for a heavy barrel.
