Yes. For the annual hunt rifle. But I do feel that generally the Savage stocks are too flexible and I tend to take steps to correct that. Your Savage should shoot MOA (or better) out of the box @100 yards. So 200 will be no problem.

What do you do to stiffen up the stock on these type of guns?

Replace them. Shoot it 1st and you deside. You may be happy w/ it as is. Don't worry about anything till you give it a good workout.

I'd have to look at your model, It's easier to stiffen the factory floated barrel.

You can glass in a couple of threaded rods or a fence strap into the barrel channel if room permits. but its much esier to R&R with a different stock...

Yep when I get this gun in 9 days, she will be shot and tested for sure. Hoping I like everything about it. Haven't heard much of anything negative about these rifles yet. Just hope the Bushnell scope holds up for a little while till I can figure out what to put on it .

i have to agree that it's best to shoot it just like it comes out of the box first to establish a baseline to see what changes help and what doesn't. word of caution. when making changes, any changes, do only one change at a time. takes longer to do it this way, but the results will pay off sooner.

My 111 is in 270. Love the gun. Took it out and shot with it every weekend for about a month, then decided on a Nikon Prostaff scope. That is all I felt it needed. Accutrigger is magic. Plastic stock is fine. I'm not a competition shooter and at 200 yards it shoots better than I am capable of, and it has the capability of accurate shooting at much farther ranges than that.

I have the mod 111, in .270 and the 116 in 7mm, mag..both came with plastic stocks.. I changed the 7 mag to a wood laminate and left the .270 alone.. I never noticed any problem with either one of the stocks.. I like the laminate on my 116, I have a large 50 mm scope with high mounts.. needed a different stock to fit right..
