I have been looking for a hunting rifle of my own since I have been borrowing two this year. The model 336 in 35rem feels great to shoulder and shoot. The Savage 110 in 30-06, not so much. I looked at a Remington Model 7 blued barrel and laminated stock and fell in love with it. Priced at $665. Ouch. Wanted one in .243. The Savage Stevens is only about $280 but I am sure the Length of Pull would be more. Any suggestions from the people in the know?
