    This Lightweight Savage is the best of them. Light and portable, accurate, reliable and excellent trigger. Oh, and a slow twist barrel that I can load heavier projectiles for.
    Yes I used a Sako Vixen bought while working for Forest Service ( cost $180 dollars new and $ 60 dollars for mounts and Weaver 4x scope )and strange you say you used Sako and Hertinberg ammo , so did we. We were mostly on goats but deer were present in the Rangitoto Range out of Otrohonga and the little Sako worked a treat on anything it was aimed at.
    Beeman bought it of me and used it culling in the Kaimai's ; Wish I still had that rifle still.
