Default Savage 11 .300 wsm

Not a real fan of the two round blind mag centre feed - any one know of a mod to get a five + round clip ? Can't seem to find anything thus far

It's hard to imagine needing more than three rounds of 300 WSM.

Then there's pig hunting... But to be honest I would not rapid-fire a magnum rifle that I liked. It wouldn't take much of that at all to crystallize the throat area and ruin the gun's accuracy.

For pig hunting situations involving long strings of rapid fire, I'd feel better off with a .308 Winchester.

With the 300 WSM, another tack would be to use starting loads instead of max loads. That should give you the equivalent of max 30-06 velocity, and it won't be so hard on the barrel.

Some Savage shooters note that barrel swaps are easy and inexpensive with the Savage, and don't worry about this issue. - They've got a good point, there.

I'd want it simply because I don't care for blind mags, not sure I don't like it 90 dollars much, but hey.. doesn't have to be a reason right?

Not at all. Personal preference counts for a lot.

Iam not rapid firring this gun lol first time I shot it it surprised me a bit - Iam making a long range shooter and just hate reloading after three shots - I bought it before I did the research on it savage has been family fav for a long time - now Iam not a huge fan I've had issues the crappy stock - I've ran bout 80 shells thru it and my rear bolt holding this thing together striped out now Iam all out of whack - fix Boyd's laminate pro varmint stock with my local shop bedding it - Iam marketing for a new optics can't decide on a night force or vortex don't have model numbers on hand thou Harris bipod ect - I just really dislike the blind mag worse thing I've ever used - for rapid shooting I won't argue .308 Winchester I have had one model 70 ( right handed )I believe since I was kid have to look again ( not at home ) I currently bought a ruger .308 scout which I love. My choices are also harder being left handed little more difficult to come by since buying the .300 in left it's been a lot more fun to shoot and wanna buy all leftys now
