Re: Which model savage to buy in 300 win.

Yes.

Savage -just like other makers- have the same barrels and actions -just different configurations as already stated.

The cheapest sporter blued barrel is no different than a fluted varmint barrel as far as the machining goes.

As stated a weather warrior + custom thumbhole stock would make a nice rifle.

Re: Which model savage to buy in 300 win.

I agree that the 116 and an aftermarket stock would make a nice rifle if you want a factory barrel. The BVSS is nice but heavier than what you want it sounds like and discontinued. I would look around for a cheap action (I've bought several complete rifles for $200 or less) and then put an aftermarket barrel on in whatever contour you want. You could do this for less than buying a new 116 and you are going to replace the stock anyway. Also, the Stevens 200 is the same as a Savage with no accutrigger and they only cost ~$300 and come in 300 WM.

Re: Which model savage to buy in 300 win.

Midway USA has savage actions by themselves. (Blued only no stainless) The have the long action for $445 (the dealer price is cheaper if you have an ffl) and the short action is on clearance for $322.

Other than that, If you have the stock then just buy the cheapest blued on cheapest Stainless depending on you preference and restock.

Good Luck.

I've got a 112 barrel in 300 win that I would sell. It is the 26" stainless fluted. It's a consistent half MOA shooter. These are great barrels I also have them in 220 Swift and 22-250.

I would get the stevens and go with the rifle basix trigger if it's not a shooter go with a kreiger barrel and still be well under 1k especially if you already have the stock... this is just my opinion

Re: Which model savage to buy in 300 win.

The Savage Varminter 12 Low Profile comes chambered in .300WSM. I think that rifle has the better grade of action with the large tenon but I'm not certain of that. I've had an opportunity to shoot two of them, one in .243, the other in .308. They were both shooting bugholes at 100 and just over a half inch at 200.

The bare rifle is advertised as 10 lbs. With scope etc. it should come in close to 11-1/2 lbs.

Fitch
