Like JP said,it looks like a cheap Chinese scope on it. You'd be very happy with a Sightron III 6-24x50,I have 5 of them.

Do you have the plain dot reticle or the mil-dot?

Have you ever used a Mil-dot? I'm one of those that prefers a standard Multi x or German #4 reticule. The Mil-dot is very good on Human targets, but gets lost on hunting a target rifles. I like a nice clear open sight picture.

I've got 3 LRMD (Long range mil dot),and 2 with the MOA-2 reticle.

For Target shooting,the MOA-2 reticle kicks ass,but if your hunting with a bunch of ground cover in the background,you have a hard time seeing the reticle.The lines are fine,and disappear in some backgrounds.
The Mil-dot is great for hunting or targets.

Well I took the savage back out today to see if there was an off chance I could figure something out. Turns out, there was. The top turret that directs the elevation wasn't connected to what actually moved the crosshairs. There were 3 little Allen wrench screws that weren't screwed all the way in. Got those in and bore sighted it. After about 5 shots of little adjustments, I was able to get a group of around an inch with some 147 grain Silver Bear at 100 yards which I was happy with
