Savage is a good rifle. A lot of people won't condone the use of .243 for white tail. I've seen them taken with a .243. Shot placement as always is key. In ethical ranges it will be a fine round. Maybe keep on the heavy side for ammo.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
