    I could be wrong but I think it is about attitude. I think the people there say, let's not F-CK around. Let's execute. Let's deliver the most accurate rifle we can. It is simple. It is no nonsense. They work with what they have and they deliver.

    And yes, as you have observed, it IS!

    A very accurate out-of-the-box shooter!

    Taliking to a savage rep one time and his answer was, Rem, Win and and others put all of the money in looks, we put it in the barrel and performance.

    Some of the cheapest and yet best shooting rifles out of the box and on the market, in my humble opinion.

    I bought a 116 in April for $299 in 300 RUM. I bedded it, recrowned it, and put on a Holland brake on it. It easily shoots half inch groups and is light weight. I took a 3x3 mule deer with it last month.

    I'm probably going to change my user name to Senior Savage and sell my senderos.

    Re: Savage rifles

    Hey fellas, I have been considering a magnum for awhile and was thinking about getting it in a savage rifle. What are you thoughts on how the barrels hold up compared to remington or winchester or ruger. Will they take roughly the same amount of shooting before throat erosion and things like that?

    James,

    The raw materials will be similar so would expect similar life spans.
