Savage 11/111 which is it?

Last year I purchased a Savage 11/111 Trophy Hunter. Now it's time to upgrade the Tupperware stock, but I am a little confused.

The gun has a DBM, bolt release is on the bottom near the trigger guard and plastic bottom trim. When I look for my configuration on the stock manufacture websites they have my options in both an Savage 11 as well as Savage 111.

What's the difference?

Then you have a long action cartridge meaning your rifle is a savage 111

Other than the stock, its not bad for the money. I normally shoot smaller calibers in a heavier gun.

Here in California we can not use lead hunting bullets. I havent spent enough time figuring them out. They have been challenging. Nonlead hunting bullet groups are 1.25 to 1.5. It shoots lead bullet groups right at 1 MOA.

Savage Freak!!!

Dude I had one, with a little stock work and proper scope mounting and handloading that rifle shot 3/4 moa with three different bullets. Very fine rifle for the money if tweaked properly....

Oh yeah, those 150 grn E-Tips from Nosler shot pretty nice through it, but there's a different OAL to use. Make sure you follow Noslers recomendation for a faster start..

I have one in a 22-250. I have not played with it to much as it was a spot buy for me. I will have to work on it this summer some more.

I'm not from California, but I have shot a lot of lead free because they perform. Barnes X, in all its variants, is a scary accurate bullet in every rifle I have ever tried it in.(app 40 different rifles)

I have the same rifle in 30-06. I call her "The Mule". She works like a mule, and kicks like one too. Very accurate rifle.
