Is this rifle a good buy? please give input

Local sale i found a savage 12 FV 22-250 with a Bell & Carlson Tactical Medalist A2 (Mossy Oak Brush)
Leupold VX-3 LRT 6.5 - 20 x 50 mm (Varmint Reticle)
Rings & Bases: Weaver Tactical
Full Length Reloading Die Set included along with reloading notes and brass
500-700 rounds through rifle for $900
Is this a good deal or not all that great? I know what the scope is worth but dont know a lot about what the savage 12 or what they go for used. Also dont know much about the stock other then its about $230-250 new. Is this a popular setup? Im asking because i want the scope for another gun i have but dont want to get stuck with the rifle. How much could i get for just the rifle?

Go for it. I would try and haggle to get him down some, but with that much stuff, wouldn't hurt to buy it. The scope and rifle are worth it. If you got the money, go for it.

Discounted new prices for the rifle run $600, scope $750mounts, rings $50 stock, $250, dye set $45......all approximate. Total $1700 I would think $800-900 depending on condition sounds right.
