That's what I have been noticing every on the internet. Seems like the biggest thing is personal preference

That particular Savage retails for about $1000 here at the local gun shop. Nothing wrong with the 7mm RemMag. You could use it for elk now and then move it down to your deer-and-smaller choice when you buy something larger.

Don't be fooled, some people think 50 BMG is a good gopher caliber!

I think that is a pretty nice rifle. Savage Model 12s are good actions. I don't think they even make the 112 anymore. Plus that looks like a factory barrel with a factory on/off muzzle brake. That would be nice. Also with 500 or so rounds of ammo. That would be hard to beat.

It is always hard to tell what a used gun will shoot like. But like others have said, with a Savage, you can easily upgrade the barrel yourself and even change it to a 300 Win Mag for that matter, latter down the road.

Heck I would be interested in it, if you don't want it!

Well, I played around a little on the blue book of gun values today for this gun and this was my finding.

1. Are we 100% sure it isn't a 116 FHSAK?
2. There isn't one 112 in the current bluebook that is valueing at higher than 600 bucks unless it is one of the dedicated target rifles (single shot, pillar bedded,
