That's interesting. I think Ruger did a run of their Compact Magnum rifles, ie. 20" barrel with open sights, and chambered them in .308. I had the can't helpits for one of them for a short while, but talked myself out of it.

Lots of folks aren't fans of the Savage bolt guns. I wasn't for a long time. I have one now that I won't part with. For a truck gun they make alot of sense.

It doesn't look that bad...for a Savage. I don't like the threaded barrel but we will see after I see one in person.

its got the right twist.

Interesting. I also like the Alaskan Brush Hunter. Similar, but 18" stainless and offered in 338 WM or 375 Ruger.
