The Savage has the benefit of the AccuTrigger, which after using for awhile I'm very fond of it. I've seen a couple barrel makers have pre-threaded and chambered barrels . Head space, spin the nut down and go shooting.
I'm just south of were your hunting, the wolves haven't had the impact there as they have here.
Are you the gunsmith or do you have one on line yet?
Hopefully this latest delisting of the wolf will stick. Right now they are managed with indifference to the other wildlife. If they revert to state management they can at least be managed in relationship to there impact and numbers. There impact varies so much, our area they have changed how the elk move and live not so much hurt there numbers. They have really hit the livestock producers. In other areas they have wiped out elk and deer herds.
I'll be first in line to get a tag, 18$ over the counter.
Thank you guys very much, I think I will use the remington, I talked to the gunsmith, who is a good friend of mine and he said he would use the remington. He said he would blue print the rem. action and I would love it. I was going to use the savage, until he said he would take it easy on my hip pocket. Thanks Guys
