Savage Model 110 BA berger reloading manual pdf . A lot of people have been drooling over the new . Although the Model 110 BA is found in the Savage Arms law enforcement lineup, and was designed with military requirements in mind, not to mention it has the ability to withstand operational use by military and law enforcement communities, long-range shooting enthusiasts will surely find this rifle appealing. 2,267 price puts it within the reach of many shooters.
The American Rifleman review is very comprehensive so I will not bother covering the same ground, but I will make a few comments about the rifle which I have had the pleasure of shooting on two separate occasions. The blast, on the other hand, is significant. The rifle is more accurate than I am at half a mile. To be quite honest, being more accurate than me is not hard! When I blogged about the original Savage Model 10 BAS, which this rifle is based on, many people criticized Savage’s decision to use an AR-15 stock and pistol grip. Personally I found the ergonomics of a free standing pistol grip to work just as well on a bolt action as it does on a tactical style automatic rifle.
Firstly, to be frank, it is ugly. Savage have gone with function over form. Secondly, few, if any, civilians are going to get any use from the side rails. They just add to the weight and cost of the rifle. Steve Johnson I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I think it’s great looking not ugly but that’s just a matter of choice. If the ammo wasn’t so damn expensive, I’d buy one.
I have to agree with you in that the rifle is damned ugly. However, when you look at it with the eye of an engineer who eschews style for utility and purpose, it is a work of art. I’d still use the side rails, but only because I’m somewhat of a dork. An old ipod touch and the ballistics app help me land some nice shots. More shooters could benefit from that particular tool. 300 win mag I perfer . Is BA a reference to Mr.
Nah, the BA Stands for Bad Ass! 1100 is because the barrels wear out very quickly. Remington had a big problem with it and stopped making them last summer. There is no point in buying a weapon you are not going to shoot and . If can’t afford the ammo, why buy the gun. 338 rounds, you should be able to afford this or the Sako TRG-42.
Why would you put a pistol grip on this? BA definitely sounds for Bad Ass. Same thing is the old Ranger SXT rounds replacing Black Talons. Little humor from the gun industry. Pic rail for bipod would have been nice, but still a hell of a rifle overall. Anyone shot both the Savage BA and the AR-30 with same ammo so we can get a review?
I’m working up to 700 meters with my win mag so I see a Lapua in my future. I see some state the 110BA is Ugly, I see it as a work of art and truly an engineering marvel. Savage did a great thing by bringing this out and has brought the likes of a very expensive chambering within reach of many serious enthusiasts. I have been longing to get a high -powered replacement. FFL fee it has come within realistic reach for many more. Thank you Erik for bringing common sense to this discussion.
Erik mentioned shooting a rifle chambered for . If not, oh well with this rifle and round all you need is one shot right? Leave it to savage to make it better and more economically friendly than anyone else. 308 while i save for this. I have no doubt it will be well worth it. Our Savage 110 BA in .
