The Collection: Savage 110FP

As you know, I name all my guns. I'd like to introduce, Fred. If I have to tell you why, go rent The Princess Bride again.

Fred is a .308 Savage 110FP which is the tactical version of the classic model 110. These are modestly priced but can still give me a 2 inch group at 300 yards and I never considered myself a serious marksman.

I bought a very nice Bausch and Lomb 6x-12x scope and quality rings for the rifle. The bipod is a must have. The action on Fred is simple and reliable. I have felt better triggers but I am not that picky.

I have harvested so many deer with this rifle I have lost count. In fact, the very first deer I got, EVER, was with Freds help. That's another story.

My best shot with this rifle was a buck at 457 yards. Far enough away that I could not see the deer with my naked eye.

-- I might upgrade the stock one day. But not today...

It will be the last they come for. Shows how little they know. Cause it is probably the most dangerous.

I have the left-hand heavy barrel version of that rifle. Sometimes I tape quarters to the 100-yard targets and shoot them with that rifle. If I do my part, it never misses. Go, Savage!

Mine is the Bull-Barrel version as well. A real tack driver. Mine is sighted in at 2 inches high at 100 yards. Makes it good out to 500 for deer hunting.
