First off, about Buds. This was my first dealing with them and my first online firearm purchase. Smooth as silk even with all the holiday and ban craziness going on. Fast delivery, awesome communication, and the 90 day layaway is a thing of pure beauty. I already have orders in for two more firearms.
About the savage. Have not yet fired it, but the look and feel of this thing are amazing. I was torn between this and an lba. After handling this one and shouldering it, I am in love with how fast and light it handles despite the 26" barrel. Being a savage, I'm sure it actually shoots as good or better than it looks. Some things to note about this model that the savage site nor buds points out is that the 338lm action is different from other 110/111 long actions. It doesn't have an open top, it is more like one of their target actions, which is great for beefiness and stiffness with the hi power cartridge, but if changing out the base to a 20 moa instead of the factory installed 10 moa, you will have to grind off the recoil lug on the new base, and the mounting screws are larger for this action as well. Not a huge deal, but something to be noted for prospective buyers. The only other gripe I have is that combining the long action with the cheek rest, you must lower the cheek rest to remove the bolt. I will likely clearance the front of the rest so that I can lock it in place and still slip the bolt out. Neither of these nuances are a big enough deal for me to rate the rifle any less than 5 stars however.
