The 250 Savage is a fine deer cartrige and often over looked.
Brass and ammo is still available , and there is a good bullet selection for the 25.
As Shortgrass said, the short action Remington will do fine, or even the Mod 7 Remington
that has the same length magazine but a shorter bolt and reciever and would be more
compact will work if you found one. (I use a lot of them for the WSMs).
With recoil being very light the rifle can be light and will not require a muzzle break.
As with all Remington's there are plenty of accessories to modify it with if you want to.
Good luck on your build.
