Yes, they have really gone up in price! The average price on the net for what I bought was $650-700, so when I saw $569 otd I jumped on it! Hillbilly, what load do you like best for your savage? What base and rings are the toughest for the savage?
I am using 44 grains of AA5744, with a 240 grain Hornady XTP.
I have Leupold rings and bases on mine with no problems.
...they never call me by my name, just Hillbilly...
