However Im pretty open at this point so Savage is with out a doubt an option. Im going to handle both shortly so im sure one will fit and feel better".

Good thinkin there
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Re: New hunting rifle questions!

Well, now that your pulling Savage into the fray, I'm going to give a vote to the Savage. You should take a look at their SS rifles. They have a ton of stocks available if you don't the factory stock.

My suggestions:
Savage Arms

Savage Arms

Savage Arms

Savage Arms

Now, for stock upgrades, Stockade specializes in Savage rifle stocks. He makes a very good product. You can purchase a money saver model and finish it your self. Should you want a quicker delivered less expensive alternative, the Bell & Carlson stocks are good affordable aftermarket stocks. Had very good success with one on a build I did in a Savage action.
