    Savage 110 FP in 300 Win Mag. 24" barrel with muzzle brake. Not sure what kind, but is not Holland, Vais, Opsync, or Answer.

    No exact round count, received in trade. Barrel was borescoped and estimated at 50% life left. Only very minor firecracking starting and clear lands and throat. Barrel and action camo painted.

    Savage black plastic stock and glass bedded.

    SSS trigger and tactical bolt handle.

    $450 and shipping to your ffl. No trades except Leica RF 1200.

    Sorry no digital camera.

    Have set of Forester Bonanaza FL BR dies modified for neck bushings that can go to the buyer at a good price.

    What does "very minor firecracking starting" mean?

    If you borescope a magnum rifle barrel after 200-400 rounds you will see minor "cracks" that start in the throat and work their way up the barrel over the life of the barrel.

    They come from the heat. They look like an alligator skin.

    No problem as most barrels have them. When someone is losing accuracy in their barrel what is really happening is that these areas are starting to flake off and leave pits and holes that catch on the bullets and copper up.

    My last HG barrel had 2300 rounds down it, no throat practically and was still shooting good enough to take 9th at the Nationals.

    Bottom line is it is not a brand new barrel, but condition shows at least 50% of life left which is probably 800 rds or more and still have sub MOA groups IF you do your part.
