I was just about to post the same question. If I do get one I'll eventually get an XLR Evolution chassis for it.

If you look around the web, a few people have posted details.

I like the 110 but its double the price.


The dfference in MSRP between the 110 FCP and the 111 is only $286, because of the HS Precision stock, I would imagine.

well kind of want one bad.... Dont know why.. I will just reload for it(looks to still be expensive) But just do some long range gooding off... then I will need a scope for it... Just not sure...would have to do some trading around.

I would suggest going with the HS stocked version, the barrel profile is a little thicker and the small price increase is worth it.

TAG for interest....I had a 110 BA....sold it for a steal. I have been thinking about this model as it is light for a Lapua and that is what I have been looking for. Savage rifles are normally pretty accurate, and in the 110 BA recoil was almost non-existent , excellent muzzle brake efficiency. If anyone has a first hand report I would also like to hear about it.....I have seen them selling for 1-1.1K, so they are really a bargain.

As I posted in another thread if I had to choose based solely on playing with them (no shooting) then the FCP with the HS stock is the way to go.

The barrel on the long range hunter is pretty skinny for any kind of volume shooting.

I just got one in 300 WSM (11LRH) & like it.. Myself & a shooting buddy were practicing at 2000 yds. for an upcoming match last week & were hitting or coming very close to our 22"X30" steel profile target.
