Re: customize a rifle i need some advice

What will you hunt, and how far away are you planning on shooting? A 30/30 will be more than enough on deer at 200 yards, but would be marginal (at best) for elk at that range. A 300 Win mag would be too much for prairie dogs at any distance (and I am aware that they will charge you if you wound them), The caliber needs to match the projected use.

You cannot build anything on any platform for that!

A barrel, chambering, crown, lugs, front of rcvr and bedding on any other gun is $600-700 or more on top of action and anything else.

The savage has decent actions, adjustable triggers, very good quality factory barrels on those two calibers, more than decent stocks. Both those two are normally shooting absolutely top notch.


Wise words to follow.....

Be careful going with the flow...you might get sucked down the drain!
