Well guys, thanks for all of the advice...ordered my rifle today. I have been watching Ruger M77 hawkeyes, Mossberg 4x4's, and Savage 114 among others. Found an incredible deal on the Savage 114 American Classic..New..for $200 less than the best places i could find like cheaper than dirt and bud;'s gun shop.
$495 shipped. I think that is a sweet deal..what do you think?
It should look nice with my Bone Collector Elite Scope. Cant wait to get it, sight it in, and get ready for fall!
