Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

This gun shot 1.2-inch groups with one ammo, better than most bolt-actions we’ve tested. It’s not perfect, but for the money, it’s quite a value, in our view.

The Savage 111FCXP3 .30-06 weighed 6.5 pounds unscoped, and with the Simmons scope, rings, and bases, it weighed in at 7.5 pounds. The Simmons 3-9x40mm scope came mounted in aluminum rings, which fastened to steel bases, and was bore-sighted.
The detachable magazine held four rounds. Unlike the Remington magazine, loading the magazine was simple and easy — just press the rounds down into the box and slap the mag home into the bottom of the gun.
The stock was a black synthetic unit with cut checkering (not molded). The edges of the checkering pattern were quite deep, and the diamonds in the checkering had nice, sharp tips, none of which were broken off. All in all, the stock offered a pretty good grip surface at the pistol grip and the forend. The stock came with a nylon sling and steel swivel studs, and the barrel free-floated in the forend.
