looking into buy this new savage rifle, has anyone shot one yet? how does the stock feel, the trigger, anything impressive about them or am i wasting my time, should i just buy another remington and bed it and go from there?
I too am having trouble finding any feedback on this rifle. They just started shipping a week ago. I decided to order one a while back in the 6.5x284 and should be getting it in the next couple days. I will fill you in with details once I get this baby out on the range. Shooting times had a nice listing of this rifle and from my experience with savages, I have no doubt that it will perform well right out of the box.
I just picked up my 111LRH in 300 Win Mag today! I was very unhappy to find that it is only a sporter tapered barrel! The entire selling hype was based on a heavier barrel to increase Long Range Accuracy! older pictures show the fluting! This is a serious case of bait and switch and I am not happy!
I should have my LRH in couple weeks. Ordered the 6.5x284! I got to look at one in a 300 as well. It does still have the adustable cheek piece, brake, accustock, ect. Its a medium heavy barrel without the flutes which I am happy about. No need for that. They went with that barrel because it had better accuracy. Great accuracy in fact! The stock had a good feel and good balance to the rifle as well. I picked mine up for $750 here in MT. It will be a shooter no doubt. And think the rifle was round 8lbs. All I got for now.

Well guys I was not able to get thru to Savage CS But when I got home I measured the Barrel diameter directly behind the break and was very surprised to find it measured 0.734" My Sav 270Win measured 0.575 at the tip of it's 24" barrel. I can only surmized it must be a heavy Sporter barrel!
I'll post a range report sometime next week for anybody thats interested!
