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.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
