[5 of 5 Stars!]As has been said many, many times, Bud's Guns was -and is- absolutly excellent. In my experience, the best.
The rifle is top notch as well. Stunning accuracy, very good fit & finish, an excellent trigger, and a great value (dare I say, "bang for the buck"? Sorry. A three-way pun is too hard to pass up.). The H-S Precision stock is a great match for the action. The whole rifle feels great in the hand, and shoots fantastic. Consistently around 1/2 MOA at the ranges I've shot it-admittedly only 100 & 200 yards so far, and only with factory loaded Hornady ammo. The 6.5 Creedmoor is a fabulous cartridge, though I chuckle at the reality that it is little different from the 120+ year old 6.5x55 "Swede". Ah, well.
I'm a paper puncher and a plinker, not a hunter, but to me this particular rifle seems a bit too hefty for field use. I also have a Ruger 77 Hawkeye Target in 6.5 Creedmoor (also an excellent rifle); though it too is a beefy boy, it well might fare better for the occasional hunt. In truth, both rifles are designed for "paper ventilation." In my opinion, this Savage is a fine choice if one requires a rifle of this specification. I am very happy with my purchase-I'd do it again without hesitation.Show More Reviews...
