Thanks for the reply. I wanted to do a Stevens 200 build but then I held one of the older model 10 predator in snow camo the other day at a small gun shop and I really liked it.
I have since then discovered the new Savage 10 Predator Max 1 with the accu stock. I got a price of $759.00 for one yesterday. I am going to get this one in .223 Rem. I am going to see how much they will give me for my 7600 Remington Pump in .35 Whelen on a trade.
I figured this gun should be a fun target practice gun with the medium contour barrel, but not too heavy to take in the woods with me for a walk. This gun should be everything I want without having to build a custom gun from the Stevens. (I still might do that too
