Re: Choosing new gun, going father...help me
I would say find you a 700 Sendero SF in 7mmSTW, or if you cannot find a used one (they haven't made them in about 10 years), The next best alternative would be to buy a Remington 700 Sendero SFII in 7mmRemMag, and have the chamber reamed to 7mmSTW, and have the barrel and action trued, while the barrel is off. You should be in a 1000 yard semi-custom shooter for under $1,500.
However, if you want a Savage, go for it. I just don't have any hands-on experience with the Savages, other than their rimfire .22's and .17HMR's.
