That is a reasonable option. I was hoping to add the weight and get a more accurate barrel at the same time. Is my stock savage barrel potentially as accurate as a shaw? If so, I will go ahead with the muzzle break and the limbsaver.
Also, I was orginally looking at spending another 500 on a nikon scope but the more I research I am thinking a Viper Vortex PST in 6-24 in MOAR. I will just have to save up for another year. That is probably the best investment as I can move it a different gun if I decide I need something different in the future.
Who am I kidding, I will probably just buy a new gun and new scope...Don't tell my wife my plans
I will add limbsaver and test, add a muzzle break if needed and then the scope.
