I'm taking it shooting Monday, I can't wait! Wish I could have this week but I have nowhere to go and my scope came today. I had to find a one piece mount to get the scope to fit. Redfield 4-12x40 and savage 110 7mm rem mag with accutrigger.

I put a Choate ultimate varmint on my 7 mag, It's bulky but it tames the kick a whole lot better than the cheap plastic sporter.

I thought about it, but I needed to save up for that.

I always put my scopes however far forward that I can, as I am bad about being a stock-crawler.

My standard set-up is to leave 1/8th to 1/16th inch between the rear ring and the magnification zoom ring on the scope.

The setup on this 17HMR is typical.

It's best to have the scope as far forward as you can. I'm going to play with sight picture and mess with the way it's mounted tomorrow when I can go outside.

It is trendy to diss the plastic stocks, but in truth there are plenty of Savage gun owners who are happy with them, particularly the accu-stocks.

Savage makes a laminated thumbhole stock for the 111 BTH that you can order from them that your action will drop right into, if you want something racy-looking that is also very comfortable to shoot.

Here's my model 16 .243 with one of those for the short action, the 11 BTH model:

I have a Win 70 in 7 mag with the Choate Varmint and a bull barrel Savage Tactical with a Duramaxx, both had plastic from the factory. The Savage was bad you could twist the forearm easily and make contact with the barrel, the fix at the time was cut a channel and bed something like a pushrod in it. The 70 stock was actually pretty good, just lighter than I wanted for the 7 mag. Sounds like the new ones are much better, maybe finding some place for weight would help if recoil is an issue. If my stuff didn't get drug around so much a nice stock like yours would be great.
