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.

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.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
