I do not. Only experience i have with savage is a good friend of mine. Not sure of what model it even is. I do know that it is an accustock model .308 with a shorter barrel 22-24 maybe. He shoots 168gr fed gold medal match right at .500 at 100 yards. Rifle is bone stock so i would imagine with some nice hand loads it would shoot awesome.

I cant recommend the 270wsm enough. I absolutely love this thing. I am really looking forward to trying some of the berger hunting bullets in this thing. with bullet weights from 90-150 you can do about anything you want with it. with the 257WM you will be pushing a 115-117gr bullet right along the same velocity that you will be pushing a 130gr with the 270wsm. slightly more BC on the 270. Not really gonna be much diff in drop at 500. good ammo is gonna run about 10$ more a box for the 257. and if you start reloading brass is about 20$ more per 50 for the 257. These are all just estimations but a good reference.

thanks do you know of anywhere I can get the Weatherby Vanguard sporter in a 270 WSM? I know Weatherby doesn't make anymore.
