but the magazine will hold fewer rounds
Of all the calibers that I have researched for this firearm, most are limited to 3round mags. That is not an issue, because it only takes one round properly placed to get the job done, if needed you still have 2 more rounds...
I have read many good things about this caliber and was looking for advice from anyone that may have used it or may have used the Savage rifle in question. The goal as stated was long range, accuracy with knock down power, with light felt recoil, used for harvesting large North American game.
