Savage model 16fss

I am looking to buy a Savage model 16fss in 204 ruger as a predator/carry gun. Does anybody have any experiance with this particular savage model I have read many posts stating that the savage rifles are known for value but this is the lower end of the savage spectrum any comments appreciated thanks.

Re: Savage model 16fss

My savage is the blued 24" sporter wieght with accutrigger. it is very accurate for a factory stick. Unmodified it shots 40 gr Hornady loads Into an average of .625" for 5 shots, some as small as .375". Handloads of the 40 gr v-max were no more accurate, but velocity from the factory loads can be improved upon.
