savage will work
I had a savage mk 2 that I bought as a biathlon build project. I ended up going with a Marlin for reasons that were completely logistical.
Back on topic:
I traded my Mark2 to a friend who has used it for prairie dog control for several years now. He has yet to stop thanking me.
I've heard good things about CZs, but I know I had a great rifle in the Mark2.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.
