Default Stevens 200 (Savage 110)

Wow! I just bought a Stevens 200 (.308), which is basically a Savage 110 with a cheap plastic stock.
I am amazed at the accuracy of this rifle. I put Burris mounts/zee ringsand a Burris Fullfield II scope on it andit is shooting under 1" at 100 yards (sub-moa), right out of the box. It was delivered to my ffl for $280!!

Savage makes some ugly guns but they are accurate. My littel bro has an older Savage that weighs about 13 pounds but will shoot under 1 in with any ammo you feed it.

You just bought the "Godess" of cheap rifles that produce great results...I have been researching this gun and you may have just helped Savage sell another one. Is this gun available in Left Hand?I want to get it in the 300 or 30-06.

Savage rifles are wickedly accurate, right out of the box! [8D]

I love my older model 110 in .308 - it's my #1 rifle. When I had it out at the range a few months ago and had it on a bench rest, I was blown away by the accuracy - I mean,I've never shot a rifle that good!

For you fellow Savage owners: Try using Federal rounds. IMHO, for some reason, Savage rifles seem to like Federal. I've tried Winchester. I've tried Remington Core-Lokt's. They all shoot fine, but you definitely notice the rifles' preference with Federal. You instantly get sub-MOA groupings!

I've got the Stevens 200in .243, and I've been really impressed too. It'll shoot 4 different factory loads into less than an inch at 100, and 3 of those loads go into nearly the same impact location. In my opinion, it is the best rifle value on the market.

No one will be able to pull the .223 stevens I bought for 259.00 out of my hands. It isas accurateas most custom rifles I agree the stock sucks sharp edges are the worst part so I sanded the intire stock and painted it. I looks good enough for a coyote gun.

I've tried Federal Fusion 150 and 165gr rounds in my 111 and both shot about 2.5" groups average. I then tried Winchester Super X 150gr Power Points and they shot sub-MOA. But sometime (after it warms up!) I plan to try the Federal 150gr PSP's (the cheap ones). They usually sell them for $11-12/box, while the Winchester Power Points cost about $14-15/box.

Regarding the accuracy of Savage rifles, they are amazing considering the cost of the rifles. Savages definately have it where it counts, but I also think that some rifles need to be shot-in before they start to really shine. I noticed that after 2 boxes of ammo the groups started to shrink, and by the end of the 4th box the rifle had settled into a very nice sub-MOA average shooter, the smallest 3-shot group was covered entirely by a dime (not bad for a sporter .30-06).

I really like my Savage. I'll grant that it's not the prettiest rifle around, but I know I can have complete confidence in it's ability to put a bullet where it's aimed. It's my "no-excuses" hunting rifle, because if I miss, it's not the rifle's fault.

Hi! My name is #40Fan, and I am a Savageaholic. **everyone...Hi #40Fan**

I just bought two Savages in the last three days. Both killer deals. One in 7mm Rem Mag and the other in 30-06 with the detachable magazine. I haven't shot either of these yet, but if they are like the other 4 that I have, they should do thier job.
