Well, it goes like this. I still have a Savage 11 F in 260, I had 2 and sold you 1, plus I still have another 15 260s to go to if I need 1.
I guess that I'm in the minority, but I really don't care for any of the Savage 110 series of rifles. However, I think that I would opt for a Stevens 200 over a Remington 710 if given that choice. Actually, I had gone to the gunshop, Rody's in Guild, NH, to buy an older Savage 110C in 30-06, but decided to buy the Remington 710 and give it a try, since so many people were writing about what a POS it was. This particular Remington 710 has worked well for me and the guys who I have loaned it to have been able to fill their deer tags with it. It would fall somewhere south of my 200th choice if I had to pick 1 rifle to hunt with, but if it was the only choice, I'm confident that this rifle will shoot a variety of 30-06 factory ammo into 2 MOA groups.
