Regardless of the cost of the rifle, it's still pretty much dead on accurate out of the box in a .308 round. I'd be more than happy to put it up against most rifles that double it's original cost. I'm a firm believer that just because something costs more, and has a "brand" name doesn't make it worth the extra money. This Savage proves me right once again
That being said, I'm back to my original question.....extended mags or modifications to existing .308 mags to fir the Savage ?
