Long Range Hunter

While the ergonomically enhanced AccuFit system will please shooters, there’s more to like about the new, improved Model 110. Even though it’s been around since 1958, it’s found favor in the hands of serious hunters. Regardless of your needs, there’s probably a Model 110 variant for you — Hunter, Storm, Varmint, Tactical, Predator, Scout, Bear Hunter, Wolverine, or the Long Range Hunter like the one I used for this article.

Other features found on the Model 110 include a floating bolt head, zero-tolerance headspacing, and precision button-rifled barrels. My test Model 110 LRH came in a gray synthetic stock with a soft textured grip on the forend and pistol grip surface. The AccuTrigger is adjustable but there wasn’t any need to adjust it — mine broke cleanly at around 3 lbs. The 26" matte black barrel features an adjustable muzzle brake and the well-balanced rifle tips the scale at a tad over 8.5 lbs. unscoped. The rifle features a hinged-floorplate magazine holding three .300 Win. Mag. rounds.

For a scope, I chose a Bushnell Engage 4-16x44. The Deploy MOA reticle features 1-MOA windage and elevation hashmarks that really help at extended range. I’ve hunted with Engage scopes before and have always found them to be reliable in the field. For range work I can crank up the magnification. When hunting — depending on the circumstance — I usually set the power at the lowest magnification. A 4-16X power range allows a lot of versatility.
