I've had a few Savages, and I've loved them all. The ones who are no longer with me (the 243, 300Win Mag, 30-06, may the rest in peace) were all exceptional guns traded off in moments of stupidity.
The current batch of Savages are here to stay. First up is an LRPV in 22-250. This gun shoots itty bitty little groups at 100yds. They average .25" for 5 shots, but on the rare day when I do my part it does much better. I haven't had a chance to shoot much at longer ranges. This is my best 5 shot group at 100yds.
I liked the LRPV so much that I bought a second one in 223. I only put about 75 rounds through this one before rebarreling it, but it shot well under .5" at 100yds. I used this gun as the base for my first Savage build. I put on a 28" PacNor stainless Match barrel in 300WSM, changed out the bolt head and firing pin, mounted a Mk2 6-18x scope, and just put it into a B&C Medalist stock. Here's the gun in the original HS Precision stock after I painted it.
Here it is after sticking it in the B&C stock. I haven't decided if I'm going to paint this one as well or not.
So far I've shot this rifle out to 300yds and it's averaging .4moa at that range.
The newest Savage is a Model 16 in 204 Ruger that I picked up for $400. I haven't shot this one yet. But I already have a 243 barrel waiting to go on there. This rifle will be the base for my goal of owning a rifle chambered in every caliber off of the 308Win case from 22 up to 9.3mm.
I love Savages because I don't need to pay some on to work on it. If I want to change calibers, I just go out to the garage and switch barrels it takes all of 10 minutes. I love it.
