A friend of mine from a couple of states away called me the other day asking about a long range rifle (or his version of long range anyway). He wants to shoot to 500 yards and wants to buy a factory rifle in 300 win mag. He has plenty of $$ but don't want to spend $4K on a custom. I told him for an off the shelf rifle that I had heard lots of good things on this forum about Savage. He asked what model I thought he should get so that is my question. Which model have you guys been having success with? He wants to get the rifle and bring it out in a month or so for me to set up and get him shooting to 500.
