Default Savage111..scary accurate.............

I shot a buddies .300 win. mag. today to help him sight it in and holey cow did it shoot.With Fed.180gr factories it was clover leafing them in there ,bullet holes vertually touching.Sporting a 3x9 Bushnell 3200 for optics.All Savages shoot and plain as hell, but beauty is as beauty does.He was really amazed when I vapourized a couple golf [email protected] the 100yrd mark.He's a new hunter and I got him shooting to boost his confidence level.Also played with a Marlin stainless guide gun in 45-70 and now I need one too.Now that I'm getting older I need bigger guns to see the bullet holes! I'll have to try that one on the wife.............Harold

Hehehehe I like that saying...beauty is as beauty does! I got a cabinet full of ugly black guns as well but they sure do shoot good. Put me on the list for wanting a Guide Gun in the 45/70 as well.

Savages shoot really well. I get the same results with my savage .300 win mag.

Seems like the typical Savage rifle I don't think you need a 45-70, I think you need a .35 Whelen

i agree I find my savage 111f in 30-06 is deadly accurate as well. Not the best looking gun but damn accurate and that is what really counts

Savage has long been one of the most accurate out-of-the-box standard production rifles made. For the money, they really can't b beat. Too bad many hunters want the cmooth sleek lines over rugged & accuarte dependability.
