Re: SAVAGE 111 25-06 distance
I agree with geargrinder. The Savage is such a versatile platform that its hard to beat. I put together a couple Savages on my own, they shoot very well. You might want to take a look at Stockade Stocks. He carries several upgrades in stocks and other equipment for Savage rifles. He has many different styles with a money saver option. This option gives you a stock that just requires cosmetic finishing. The one stock I helped with required very little work to get it ready for paint. I have one of his bolt handles and lift kits. Both are nice upgrades. It's nice being able to change calibers on one action and the fact that you can do it on your own is just an added bonus.
