SAVAGE ARMS Rolls out More Scoped Rifle Packages: Model 11/111 DOA HUNTER XP

DOA Hunter XP

Savage Arms is firmly cementing their brand atop the rifle industry with their quality barrels, famous AccuTrigger, and affordable packages. Their latest introduction does not deviate from that reputation. The Model 11/111 DOA Hunter XP is a culmination of products from the Federal/ATK family in an affordable package.

The base rifle utilizes Savage’s time-tested 110 action. It also employs their “thread-in, zero-tolerance headspace system” which is responsible for a lot of the accuracy. You get a button-rifled barrel and it would not be complete without the AccuTrigger. Some more simple features are the black synthetic stock, blued finish, and detachable box magazine.

Now, onto the hardware. This package is mounted with Weaver Grand Slam rings. These are steel and have 4 Torx screws per ring ensuring a strong, tight hold for optics. A Bushnell Trophy XLT with DOA drop-compensating reticle is the centerpiece of the package. This reticle assists shooters by more predictably marking yardages out to 600 yards.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Five years ago I bought, on a store special, a model 110 Savage in .300 WSM with a scope. The rifle is super accurate, the trigger is a rifleman’s dream, but the butt plate of about 3/16 of very hard rubber was a nightmare. A limb saver recoil pad tamed the beast. It is sighted in at 225 yards and out to 300 yards I pretty well just hold dead on for one shot kills on deer. Granted the .300 WSM is overkill for deer, but I might run into an escaped African Lion, and besides I don’t have to worry about yardage and hold over. I’m getting lazy.

    One of these in a 6.5 or a .260 is bery, bery interesting indeed.

      I was hoping to find an unbeatable Black Friday deal, but no such luck. Creedmoor is calling. With any luck, a new range will be opening just east of town this summer with a 1000 yard range, the only one anywhere near here.

    The main complaint of the Savage package deal was the scope rings, which I understand were plastic and usually came loose. These rings should solve that complaint.

    Soon to be gracing the shelves of your local Walmart.

    Make it standard from the factory with AICS spec bottom metal and a PMag and Ill be all over it.

    That being said the rings pictured are way too high…
