I'm not sure if it's a Savage production problem or if they are all getting bought up too quick. I can find plenty of 12F rifles but they are beasts to hunt with.

There are other models out there. I'm not saying you have to buy a 11LRH. Just saying that is ideal. Another option would be to look at the Law Enforcement line of rifles, 116's, 111's non LRH, and Mod 10's. They would all work. Just get something to get you through.

Savage Arms Firearms > 16 FHSAK
Savage Arms Firearms > 116 FHSAK

Savage Arms Firearms > 111 FCNS


These would get you through in any of the calibers. Some of them already have the bolt head necessary for caliber you want. Thought I would throw them out there.

Anyway, I was dead set on the 6.5 but then someone mentioned that I would get the same bullet availability and better ballistics with the .264.
Any opinions???
