    Hi folks (first post here....been lurking for a while),

    Been hunting for many years and lately have been taking elk at longer and longer ranges. I've been shooting the same Mossberg 1500 .30-06 since I started hunting. I won't take a shot that I think is unethical and I'm starting to pass up elk that I'd love to have a chance at.

    After doing a lot of research, I've settled on .300 Win Mag as the round I wanna shoot. Also, after a lot of research I think I've settled on the Savage 111 Long Range Hunter.

    Now, my problem......

    I can't seem to find one in stock anywhere!!! I started with all of my local dealers and none of them could get one. Now, I've been searching online, to ship to a local FFL, and I can't find one online either!! Anybody got a line on a Savage 111 Long Range Hunter in .300 Win Mag?

    Thanks!

    I just bought a Savage LRH from my local gun shop The Exchange. They found one pretty quickly and they sell a LOT of guns so if there is one out there somewhere they would probably find it.

    Wow....that BVSS is very tempting. My only concern there would be the weight, since I do a fair amount of hiking while I'm out hunting. I may have to consider it, though....thanks for the link.

    Give Jim a call, he'll tell you what the real difference is.
    I put two slings on my gun, and carry it backpack style, weight is no issue.
