Re: How Do I Know What To Buy? By Jeremy Knepp

a nice well written article. ive been a savage supporter/owner for about 50
years. thanks to them leftys were offered bolt guns when others felt us unworthy. the accuracy level of the new savages is unbelievable to me.
only one comment id make regarding long range hunting.
we (hunt) with our eyes not our feet and our guns. good glasses on a steady rest like a tripod should get as much or even more attention as your gun choice.

I agree. It's been a while since I have written this article. At the time I was just focused on the rifle and optics for the rifle. But, I do absolutely agree with you.

I like Savage too and have had good accuracy! The only thing that ever bothered me was that they didn't shoulder as comfortable as browning.

As the snow fly's outside I read the post and will read it again. Great read!!!! I like what Savage has done with there rifles and also your mention of the 270 being underrated. With bullets from Berger and Matrix the door has been opened up for all calibers to improve your ballistics down range.

I completely agree. Glad you liked the read. It's been a long time since I have written it. Thanks for your interest.
