New Savage 220

My local gun store moved into their new building 2 weeks ago and had a week long grand opening sale. They moved into the old Gander Mountain building. Gander Mountain could not compete with them and Bass Pro, all within 2 miles of each other. There were never hardly any people in Grander Mountain.

I went up there to checkout their new store, much bigger than the 75 year old house they were in. The store was jammed packed with people and the parking lot full.

They had a Savage 220 on sale for $430, so I picked it up, along with a DMZ scope mount ( med. off set for short scope ) and some AccuTip and SST slugs.

I really like the balance of the 220, feels real good. The bolt is a little stiff right now but should smooth out with use.

I don't like the height of the scope with the DMZ mount. I am using a Leupold VX2 2-7x33 scope. Because of its short lenght it makes eye relief a problem. I ordered 3 other options from Midway today to try and see what I like the best.
