Have no idea. But if it's as accurate as the cheap 270, I purchased. Then you should love it.

Just like cars and trucks you get good ones and bad ones. I have a couple of Savage rifles and everyone of them shoot as good as I can shoot them.

I bought a model 10pt-sr 308. Sent it back to savage 2x before finally selling it. 2" group at 100 was as good as i could get

the 110 with accutrigger that I bought my son will shoot better than I can shoot it.

I had a 110G long action in 30-06. The dang screw in the back of the bolt just would not stay tight.
Ended up giving it to a nephew.

I had one at one time that shot very well after I put a Rifle Basix trigger on it. I just can not for the life of me why they call it an accutrigger. Rifle Basix makes the best trigger for Savage IMO.

I got the gun Sat.. While its no "browning", it does feel pretty good, and I like the accutrigger . I need to put a diff scope on it and shoot her a few times to see

Well maybe I should have stated the accutrigger is fine but the blade safety feature of it sucks. Why add more "creep" to a decent trigger.

After buying the 270, I had boogar, at Veterans Gun Works, do a trigger job. Got it down to
2.9 pounds. I was literally busting thumb tacks at a hundred yds. My son hasn't picked up his Remington, ever since. Guess I need to buy another one since he has taken over this one.
