    I have never seen a Savage Bolt Action Rifle that was not a Tack Driver.

    My Old Savage 112 in 22-250 would shoot 1/4 " groups at 100 yards with Remington Target ammo. Might not be pretty but man can they shoot.

    Savage Hog Hunter

    Last winter when all that anti gun rhetoric was heating up, I thought I'd have to make some other arraignments if they decided to ban large cap ARs. So, I started shopping for a 5.56 bolt action. I initially wanted a CZ 527 carbine, but the price tag and the twist rate drove me to the Savage Hog Hunter . Trigger and accuracy are very good in my opinion. My only gripe is that the mag is internal.

    I was going to look at the Mossberg MVP, but when I read all the negative reviews (not Magpul friendly) I made the move to buy a Savage.

    Not perfect, but pretty damn good!

    there is after market mag adaptors for that non box drop mag rifles
    and boyds stocks i think has a few options (theres where i got my thumb hole for the 10fp i have )

    i looked into updating to a box mag but since its just a fun toy i didnt see a need vs cost

    if i wanted high cap but still nearly a tack driver i woudl get a AR10T

    My wife and I were thinking about leaving Alaska so I sold off my Win. Mod 70, .458 Win Mag, and my Marlin .45-70. Well things changed and were staying which I'm very happy about. Then I started thinking I don't have anything bigger than a .308". So yesterday we went out and I bought a Savage 111, .338 Win Mag, HOG Hunter and now I'm going to order a Precision Armament M-41 muzzle break. Man I'm looking forward to brush busting with this thing. This rifle feels good in the hands, short, stout and easy to wield in thick bush.

    The Savage 24-series rifle/shotgun combos are excellent highly versatile firearms. I sold my 24D Series G so I'll have an incentive to track down a 24C. Both are 22LR over 20ga. Fun shooters.

    They also made the 24's in a whole pile of other useful rounds, to include a 223 Remington over 20ga and 30-30 over a 12ga.
