I have always been on a budget. That's how I ended up with my Savages. They are pretty accurate. I am a hunter so accuracy is good enough for me. I will not post pictures of my rifles as they are used and abused. They have served me well over the years and are still dropping animals for me.
One of the intriguing things about the Savage is that you can re-barrel the rifle yourself - no need for a gunsmith. I re-barreled one of mine to a 30-06 AI. Provides just a little more oomph that the standard '06. Just wanted something a little different.
