    My friend just had a little girl and is getting rid of a gun, savage model 12 22-250 with a leupold vx-3 6-18x40. Our final agreement is $650 and my other friend is eventually buying the scope for $325... im basically getting the gun for $325 which seems like a great deal for me, am i right??

    Gun has 200 rounds through it and shoots under an inch with factory 50gr hornadys, i already have dies and all of the components for the caliber

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me...although it does break your "Remington 700's Only" mantra! Hahaha, couldn't resist :D

    I would in a second. It will be the envy of the remingtons in the safe.

    Certainly not a bad deal. If your looking for a 22-250, jump on it.

    That was my deciding factor, I really wasn't looking for this heavy of a predator gun but with the 26" barrel it should smoke 50gr vmax's
