Me: I wants itSavage 112 Magnum Target in 338 LM - mine was about $ 750 brand new in the box, can still be had via Academy for $1,050.

I bought mine specifically to take the barrel off..... and didn't. It's been a hoot to shoot how it came, to the point I've given up and ordered two new actions with 338LM bolt faces since I got it. Easy peasy 2k yard rifle, even with a sub-$1K Athlon scope. Not as good as my uber-fancy custom 338 Edge, but for less than $2,000 to get it on the firing line and running it's been a deal. Still shooting the Hornady cases from factory loads ($130 for 20, screw you Cabela's!), with Midway 250gn HPBT second's for bullets, Ramshot LRT, Winchester mag primers, and send it.
The first five shots did NOT stack on themselves - more like 2" at 100 yards. And the button rifling coppered up an insane amount. But with handloading and more shots on the barrel it settled in to a solid 1MOA rifle so far.
Also me: Yeah, but I...
Me: You could die before having it
Also me: You got a point...
