Recently ive caught the .270 win "bug" (if there is such a thing). Ive looked around for a rifle in this caliber when i came across the savage 10/110 trophy hunter xp. i like wood stocks and nikon scopes so this seems like a sweet package rifle. anyone one of these in any caliber? if so hows the fit and finish? acurracy? etc . thanks.

I saw one the other day in 243. Looked like a nice rig.

I have owned several of the inexpensive Savages including a 110 combo in 270 Winchester. Very very good rifles, not alot of frills but very accurate and reliable.
270 Win is always a solid choice I have always considered it one of the top choices for whitetail.

I have the 111 TH XP. Same thing, just polymer instead of wood.

No complaints. The polymer stock suck, but Savage's wood stocks are quite nice, so you should be happy. Also, the Nikon is the best package scope I've ever used. It still sits on my 111 .30-06. The Accu-Trigger is fantastic, as well as the rifle's accuracy. You shouldn't be disappointed.

I have three Nikon scopes, two Prostaff BDCs and a Buckmaster all really good scopes in my book. Glass is not quite as nice as my VXII but better then most.

I don't know how much of an accuracy freak you are but I will make one important note about Savage accuracy, while all of my Savages have been highly accurate they are not always accurate with my first choice in bullets. Some like poly tips, some like boat tail Savages are the most bullet picky rifle out there IMHO. My 270 Win liked flat based bullets while my 30-06 likes 150gr poly tip boat tails, and my Model 11 270 WSM likes 130gr Sierra Game Kings more then anything. Savages are funny like that.

Got one just like that, it is an excellant shooter for the money and the fact it is a production rifle. Often around 3/4"@100y, sometimes better, sometimes worse, depending on how the factory ammo is.

Is this rifle in which you speak new, or I should say, recently produced, or is it an 'older' unit?

Great, the 'newer' Savages, say newer than 10 or so years shoot fine.

There was a time the big S had problems....and bad problems, but that was resolved when Mr. Ron took over the operation, now we have had the pleasure of returning several 'new', as in produced in the last several months, rifles. All of these however, have been rimfires.
