That savage should serve you well. I have owned 4 savage rifles over the years. They all were extremely accurate. Three of them were the plain-jane 110's. The only problem with any of them was you could not let the stock get wet or it will swell and crack pretty fast. I cured that problem by getting a synthetic 7mag 112. As far as the '06 is concerned, as an overall round you can't beat it. I shoot the same load in my 03 Springfield as I did in my Savage, a healthy load of R22 under a 180gr partition. Will kill anything that walks, large or small. Not exactly a loooong range load.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.
The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
