Savage rifles are extremely nice hunting rifles available at very good prices. The people I know who own them are very satisfied customers.

The only people who talk bad about them are those who've never used them.

is he experienced enough to handle the 300 in a bolt action ok? That's pretty serious blast. Will he be in the sort of terrain, is he a good enough shottist, to take advantage of the 300's 100m or so greater range than, say, a 308? he could practice a LOT more with a 308, due to ammo costs. Does he have a 308 to practice with? Will he reload for the 300? The rifle is one thing, the cartridge is another thing, and the shootist is something else again.

Savages are pretty damn ugly, but will put a lot of pricier rifles in their place accuracy wise. They're a good deal $-wise.
