I also heard that buying a new stock and can help reduce recoil and make it more accurate is this true? If so what stock should i go with?
For what your looking to do (500 yds on $350) Id say Nikon 4.5x14x40mm s/f with the BDC reticle. Its not ''absolutely perfect'' as no ''Hold over'' reticles are, but with a 300win mag youll be right in there. That way you only have to dial for the wind. I own Burris, Nikon, Leupold, and I will venture to say for the money
Nikon Buckmaster is a great scope. Burris (IMO) is tougher, but costs just a bit more.
As for the Savage questions, theres a bunch of Savage fans here who'll jump in shortly to help you out. If you want to keep your rifle the way it is Id highly recomend Limbsaver recoil pads if they make them for your rifle.
