I suggest you handle one - you will see it borrows great ideas from, yes, Savage (locking barrel nut and 'accu trigger') Ruger (magazine only 783 is much stronger) and others. Heck that has a lot to do with why I bought it! But IMHO Savage magazines aren't for poop and I would not take one hunting where we go. I helped a guy sight in a new Savage a few weeks ago and it felt kind of flimsy to me. Which is why I didn't buy it. The stock on the 783 is built for hunting. Not plinking
All of my Savages (except my 93 rimfire) have internal magazines so I cannot comment on their external mags on the new 110s. I will keep an open mind on the new Remingtons until some of my fellow experienced handloaders get a hold of them. The worst of my Savages (a synthetic stock 30-06) holds reliable 1/2" accuracy with it's best hunting load and like every Savage I have worked with is reliable as the sunrise, if the Remington 783 can match that I will give them another look. If the only advantage the Remington holds is a better magazine at the cost of reliability or accuracy that would be a real bad tradeoff for me.
