Re: What cal?

Thanks for all of the info guys good food for thought. I am pretty sure all of the savage rifles come with a 1/12 twist.

Re: What cal?

Not sure what your budget is but the Ruger American rifles are hard to beat. I bought mine in AK and paid about $330 for it, you'll have to check the website but I believe they come in 22-250,243,308,270,30-06. With a little time the trigger on mine is breaking around 2lb and is a tack driver with the right loads, mine love and I mean loves 58gr v-max loaded hot, the horandy superformance and now the winchesters loaded with their ballistic tips. Since they're new rifles and on the cheap side I haven't seen any aftermarket accessories yet, but their light handy rifles and with a redfield revolution scope on top you'll have an all american made rifle that'll shoot pretty darn good for under or around $600 that'll be hard to beat. Don't get me wrong it's a $300 rifle it's not fancy by any means but, they shoot good and they're not too hard on the eyes.
Good luck and happy hunting.

Re: What cal?

i would stay with a 243 or go to 25-06, they outperform 22-250 and are more versatile

Thanks for the info guys I think I might stay with the .243. Who knows though I change my mind every time the wind blows. Probably won't buy until spring who knows what I will think by then.
