Hi Gang, Been scouring the internet, but have found very little information or reviews on the Savage 111 Long Range Hunter. I have a few questions: 1. Does anyone here own this rifle and what is your view of it? 2. Have you modified it and if so, what did you do? 3. In your opinion, as this is a 26" barrel, is this too long to be practical for a field gun to hunt elk/deer while hiking around in the mountains, or would a person be better off to save the 2 inches and go for a Weather Warrior or something similar? T.I.A. for any opinions.
