I have always liked the 22mag however the cost of ammo was the main reason I stayed away. When I fell into 1800 rounds of CCI, I decided to go buy a rifle. I had been reading about the new savage for a long time. I was basically waiting until I found what I wanted for a scope. At the Hattiesburg Gunshow I bought a 3x9x40 wide field Redfield,(illuminator) still in the original box with all the paperwork. My wheeler scope mounting kit came in yesterday. I have to get my bore sighter ordered. I'm in no hurry, I just want this thing to be right.
