answer 1
I thought I'd revisit this question, so here goes. A .308 with 180gr bullets will kill nearly any black bear with proper placement of the bullet. Use the heavier bullet, though. If you decide to go after Grizzly or Alaskan Browns, put it on the shelf, and go to heavier calibers. .338, .358 (35 Whelen), .375 or above. Use heavy bullets. You need the killing power and the penetration.

Yes, it will kill a black bear just fine. But go with heavier bullets. 165gr or 180 gr. for penetration. Some of the larger black bears are tough. You'll want to use a bullet with a high sectional density.

answer 1
I need to make a correction on my answer to this question. I put .25 Whelen, instead of .35 Whelen. I use the Whelen or the 300winmag rifle when I need to reach out, because of the higher impact at distance. Yes, the .308 will carry to 1000yds, but it loses most of its velocity, drops dramatically, and drifts with wind. The 35 Whelen does, too, but it starts with at least 1000ftlbs more energy, so it carries significantly more killing power past 400yds. If you want a 30 cal rifle for distance work past 600 yds, go with the 30-06 or the 300winmag. Use 180gr to 200gr bullets in it, and it will reach 1200yds at sealevel. Use the .308 for shots inside 500 yds or so. (I have shot the Whelen on a KD range out to 700 meters and hit with 225gr Sierra bullets and 600 meters or so with 250 Speer bullets, so it is capable of long shots, just so you'll know. I cheat though. I have a Shepherd Scope on it.)

answer 2
Its been a while since I answered this question, so I thought I'd revisit it. The .308 or the military version of it in the 7.62, which is the same dimensional round, but loaded to different pressures, will reach to 1000yds. They use a special ball ammunition for it in order to do that. It has either a 168gr match bullet or a 175gr. match bullet. The rifle has a 24" barrel, with a 1 in 10 twist to stabilize heavy bullets. The Savage F type rifle in a 30" barrel will do it, too. But they are dedicated target rifles, purpose built to get that performance from the .308 or the 7.62 by 51mm Nato. Also, the ammunition is purpose built for long range shooting to 1000yd. No .308 round is adequate as a 1000yd hunting round. It has nothing to do with accuracy, it has to do with impact velocity at extended ranges, and big game bullet performance. Finally, when you look at the Camp Perry matches, while the 7.62 Nato or the 5.56 nato is used in the 600yd matches, the 1000yd match is dominated by two calibers. They are the .300 winchester magnum and the 6.5 X 284. There's a reason for this. In the heavier, more ballistically effecient bullets, they both drift in the wind less than half as bad as the .308, and stay supersonic for more than 1200yds. The 30-06, with at least 150fps more velocity than a .308 in the same bullet weights will stay supersonic to 1100yds or more at sealevel. Its just as accurate in a 24" barrel when loaded with the right powders and doesn't kick much more. If you're going to take shots at game at 1000yds, use a bigger diameter bullet like the 338. In all the calibers I've mentioned above, the bullet has slowed beyond the point where it will reliably mushroom in game at 1000yd, and your wound channel will not be big enough to guarantee a quick kill at that range. I personally would limit my shots on big game to 600yds or less, unless it is a trophy of a lifetime, and then my desire probably would override my ethics, and I'd try for it. But it would still be a bad idea. And I use a .25 Whelen or a 300 win mag for my longrange shooting, with the least powerful round I would use being the 30-06, which I have killed deer with at 500yds, more or less.

The rifle is accurate enough, the scope is adequate, but .308 Winchester rounds tend to go sub-sonic around 800yds. If you want to shoot 1000yds with the Savage, go to the .300winmag or the 30-06. You need the velocity.

That's a "long shot" for any type of game. The longest shot I took with my savage 111F was a little over 150 yrds (PA whitetail deer). The rifle was in 30-06. I think a 7mm mag might be better for long range????

I do not feel comfortable taking a shot at game at 1000 yrds. Steel or paper targets might be interesting??? Contact Savage and Nikon for this information.

I'm revisiting this answer. The Savage rifles that have synthetic stocks in this combo package do not have accustocks. They are, however, pillar bedded, I believe. That's something Savage came up with in the late 90's or early 2000's. It made a standard wt. rifle shoot like a custom rifle without the added weight of glass bedding or the added weight of the accustock. It made such a difference that custom gunsmiths started offering it as an accuracy enhancement. Yes, I have seen 11/111 Trophy Hunters with Accustocks, and they all have the accutrigger. It is standard on all Savage rifles. However, the pillar bedding, which is also standard, does much the same thing without the added cost or weight, if the synthetic stock is stiff enough. And mine is.

I believe you can get both the 111 and 116 with an accustock. However, all synthetic stocks from Savage are pillar bedded already, if I'm not mistaken. They started doing that back in the '90s.

I have a Prostaff scope at home which I haven't mounted yet, but will when I get back from Afghanistan. It tells you in the instructions that it is calibrated to approximate point of aim for standard velocity rounds (.308, 30-06, 280Rem,and such) to approximately 500yds, and to magnum rounds (2900-3000fps range) to approximately 600 yds. But it also tells you that you need to shoot it at the various ranges to find out what your exact point of aim should be. It is a generalized BDC system. Like one of the others said, Nikon will gladly give you the BDC figures and approximate aimpoints for the rifle its mounted on, but you need to varify and tweek it at a range to make sure of the correct point of aim for each distance. And don't forget, if you do it at 1000ft and then hunt at 8000 ft, it will be different due to the air density change.

No they don't, but I believe all the Savages in synthetic stocks and maybe wood stocks, too, are pillar bedded. As long as the stock is stiff enough not to touch the barrel, that's as good as glass bedding and will be all you need. Pillar bedding was first done by Savage, and proved to be very accuracy inhancing, especially combined with a synthetic stock and free floating barrel.

answer 1
Yes, the .300 WinchesterMagnum out of a 24" barrel is quite capable of 500yd hunting shots. With the 180gr bullet, factory ammunition is normally rated at 2950 from a 24" test barrel. This rifle has a 24" barrel in that caliber. The rifles that Savage makes aren't as pretty as a lot of other brands, but they are known for their accuracy, so that's not an issue. Any group tighter than 1.5" at 100yds is accurate enough for 500yds. Nearly all Savages will beat that. Beyond 500 yds is another ballgame. But with 200gr. Speer or Sierra bullets, you can extend the rifle's effectiveness on Whitetails, antelope and mulies out to maybe 700 or 800yds, and still expect the bullet to penetrate and open adequately to do the job. But for anything past 400yds, you need very good optics, and shooting accurately at 500 and beyond is MUCH harder than shooting accurately at 200yds. Practice for ranges past 400yds requires shooting in the hundreds of rounds to be consistently accurate. And it has to be done with the .300, so you can get field and range experience at those distances. And it is a perishable skill. But the rifle and cartridge combo will do it if the shooter can. But I personally wouldn't use factory ammunition unless I have to. I custom load my own for my .300 in order to insure precision. If you are going to start shooting at distances like this, get a chronograph and check your loads in your rifle, so you know what they're really doing. Different rifles give different velocities even with the same ammunition. A 100fps difference in velocity makes a several inch difference in aimpoint at 500 and beyond. My .300 launches a 180 gr. Sierra Gameking at 3040fps, average. Yours might meet that, and it might be 2950 or less. There's no effective difference at 500yds (maybe 2") but at 700yds, it could be 8 to 10". There are very few people who can make first shot kills beyond 5 or 600yds routinely. But the rifle will probably do it just fine. And with lots of practice, so can you (maybe).

Go with the Savage. You'll save money and get the same performance. I have tried both and much prefer the savage. It also shoulders better than the 700 but that is personal preference. Taken 3 deer and an elk with the savage .270 so far and look to expand that list.

I considered the Remington model in a 26" barrel, but went with the savage 24" .300 Win Mag. the Accue Trigger they have is awesome and very east to make adjustments, The scope with the BDC was also part of the decision even though it is a beginners scope.

Your preference is what matters. I just think the Savage has more to offer for the money. Can't go wrong with either.

Question

Acutrigger

Is the accutrigger worth the extra to buy it on a gun? Is the stainless steel barrel on the model 116 more accurate then the barrel on the model 111 or is it preference

Not really, if you are at the range you want to let the barrel/s cool down. The heat can cause a variance. When hunting your not shooting very often and the barrel is cool to start with.

I bought a Savage Arms 11 combo (same rifle with a short action) and it came with the accutrigger. Yes the accutrigger is worth it. It may be the best factory trigger on the market. The Stainless Steel barrel is not more accurate. It is just more forgiving in bad weather. It doesn't rust as quickly and is easier to protect from the weather. Its a preference.

The Savage® Arms 111 Trophy Rifle with Scope Package, item # IK-291533 has the Accutrigger which allows the hunter to adjust the trigger pull to a light pull without sacrificing safety. It is an accuracy enhancing device, but whether or not is something that any specific hunter will want is a matter of personal preference. The stainless barrel is not related to accuracy, but is more related to ease of maintenance, in that stainless steel is inherently more resistant to rust and corrosion than most other finishes.

Butler Creek will have lens caps that fit it. Cabela's will have a Butler Creek chart and you can have them measure one of their Nikon scopes against the chart and get the correct fit.

I wouldn't. Its a beginner's scope. If you want to do that, upgrade your glass and go with a scope with the target knobs already installed at the factory, or get a scope with a bdc reticle. Personally, I use Shepherd scopes because I like their ranging and bdc reticle. They're expensive, but they work, and I now have 5 of them as a result. Don't rry to make the low dollar scope do too much. Upgrade.
