    Did you bed it before you drop in the action? Nice looking laminate!

    Savage has been making the old 110 set up for a LONG time. At one time, they were all long actions, actually EXTRA long actions if you compare them to a 70, or a 700 or a 98. In fact, once upon a time, if you didnt want to spend the extra money for off set rings, you had to actually be careful what scopes you tried to mount on 'em because the scope length of MANY scopes werent long enough to mound on a 110! I have owned quite a few over the years and even owned one, in the OLD VEEERY LONG 110, factory chambered in ............... 222 Remington!! The magazine was blocked for a full HALF of its length to hold the .222 shells! Ive also owned em in 270, and a BUNCH of em in '06. EVERY ONE shot exceptionally well, even one I bought that had been traded in after being used by an Amish man for deer hunting for MANY years - it was terribly dirty, and had been used VERY hard for VERY long. They arent necessarily GRACEFUL, and the "beech hardwood" stocks on most of the early ones were very clubby, kinda like holding onto a 2x4- the lines of the current stocks, and especially the plastic stocks are MUCH better, and are a very comfortable replacement to put on those fat, older ones. Enjoy it when you get it; it should serve ya well and shoot DAMNED well!

    If you plan on changing stocks make sure the center to center of the action screws are the same as yours. I did 7 left hand Barrelled 110-111's for a custome and 2 0f them were different. I don't know what the stocks were off of (he bought them) but just glassed the old holes and drilled new ones, best to check it first to avoid such a hassel. Had to make new metal screw seats for front screw and glaassbed. Good Luck

    Didn't need to, the new Revolution Tundra stock was cut perfectly for a good tight drop-in fit on the action, but left the barrel free-floated. It shot quarter sized groups at 100 yards without any other modifications, which is as good as I could ever want from a high powered rifle like that. That old Savage has a beautifully crisp 3lb. trigger that breaks like glass and despite the large recoil from the 7mm Rem. Mag. is just amazingly accurate. :cool:

    Y'all wanna know a neat trick for testing to see if bedding and floating will improve the way your rifle shoots without doing anything to the stock??

    Go to the fridge an drink a can of your favorite beer...










































    Then take a pair of scissors and cut the can into shims for the action. itll give the reciever a solid even area to seat to under screw tension and lift the barrel out of the channel a good .025" or so. Torque the action screws to 65 in lbs and go shoot it. If the results are outstanding then glass or epoxy bed the action and float the barrel. Remember when bedding only torque the action screws to about 10 in lbs. just enough to seat the action into the stock while the bedding cures.

    I'm hanging on to my older 110FP in .308 -- which was happily shooting <1.5 MOA groups right out of the box without taking the time to find what ammo it likes best. I haven't had the time to take it somewhere to do it justice lately, but our day will come (probably in the spring, because it is already getting rather cold & wet out for my taste)

    Even though there is theoretically some flex asociated, I have done the same thing with a piece of plastic shotshell hull - cut a piece around 1.5 inches long, and place it under the chamber, and tighten the action screws. Did this to an old '03 Springfield "foul weather gun" and it shot so well, I never removed it and bedded the thing.

    I've owned a few Savage 110's. A little heavy, but great shooters. I now have a new mod. 10 Savage. 243 cal. Syn. stock. I love it. Will hit a dime at 100 yards. All day.
