Been shooting a Savage (lefty) 111 in .338 since 1998 - love that rifle. Very accurate.

One of the best values in a rifle on the market. No question. Very good barrels, and a trigger that is nearly impossible to beat in a stock rifle.

Enjoy.

Got one in a 270win from a deal my dad and brother came across a few years back for one of my kids. Was a bit unsure about the gun but for the price couldn't turn it down.

Didn't shoot it for years till my second of 5 kids started deer hunting last year. Took it out to the range with an old cheap scope I mounted on it myself. Don't like cheap scopes but it was an old one from an old gun of my dads so gave it a go. And I'll be darned that gun shoots straight. Thing that really ticks me off about it vs the other guns is it doesn't seem to be to finicky about what ammo I shoot through it. Groupings where good with any thing I shot through it. Wish I could say that about my rifle. She only seems to like Horandy 150gr bullets.

Picked up the same "lefty" 110 about 1.5 years ago and love it. I think you'll grow very fond of that rifle.

I've always been a proponent of Savage rifles. Years ago they were scuffed at because of the plain jane stocks and thought of as cheap stuff. Well, lemme tell ya, they are a great gun for a great price and they are American made. Don't get offended but, I'd pick up one over any of those overly priced foreign made ones. I'm sure you are gonna like it.

I bought a brand new model 110 30-06 in 1998 and it has done very well for me. Each hunting season when it goes in to be sighted, it is where it was the year before and continues to have a consistent pattern. It has been well worth the 300 bucks I paid for it back in high school.

I have one in a 30.06. Nothing wrong with the rifle but I don't use it much. As stated above, they do have a cheaper looking finish but the gun does shot deer.

I would use it more but I seem to use the 270, 7mm and the 300 more times than not.

I bought a savage 111 in '98 as well in .300 Win Mag and a few days later I picked up a Rem 700 Bdl. Same calibur. I just like the .300 Win but it is nothing but a slightly swifter 30-06. The fit and finish on the Remington 700 bdl is way better but the Savage shoots way better. The Savage cost about $500 Canadian at the time and I put a $650 Leopold scope on it. It'll shoot better than I can. Both guns have killed a fair number of moose but all my buddies always want to borrow my Savage.

30-06 and 30-06 sprg/springfield are the same ammo. Just a labeling thing.

the 30-.06 was brought out in 1906 by Springfield, as a 30 caliber, hence, 30-.06. That's why you see the .243 refered to as the Winchester 243, Norma 308 Mag, .243 Ackerly Improved, WBY Mags, etc. Any name brand factory loads in thier respective calibers.

30-06 was adopted by the US Army in 1906 and it was produced in the Springfield Armoury. It had several years of R&D prior to that. The .30.30 was produced much earlier in that it was 30 calibure with the equivilant of 30 grains of black powder. .30.30 was one of the very first cartidges to use smokeless powder. The 30-06 was the standard battle cartridge of the US Army until 1957. The .303 Brit was the most popular battle cartridge in the world until the AK-47 came along.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
