While I agree that the Savage is a good rifle, I would suggest checking at your local Sp Whs for a Tikka T3. Imported by Baretta. About the best $500ish dollar gun out there in my opinion. I have the Savage 110 chambered in 300WinMag and I do like it. I puchased a Tikka last year and am very, very impressed with it. Fully floated barrel, adjustable 2-4lb trigger and the lite version I bought weighs just over 6lbs. Worth a look for anyone. My .02.....
