The 70 stock was actually pretty good, just lighter than I wanted for the 7 mag. Sounds like the new ones are much better, maybe finding some place for weight would help if recoil is an issue. If my stuff didn't get drug around so much a nice stock like yours would be great.
the laminated stocks are actually pretty durable and weather doesn't affect them like regular wood stocks. IMO, laminates are the best of both worlds, the beauty of a nice wood stock an the durability of a synthetic. i am very pleased with mine so far.

I've owned a couple of Savages over the years, never had a bit of trouble with either, now I want to replace mine and build it up.

So I shot my savage today. It was an experience to say the least. This was the first scope I had ever mounted and I didn't tighten the rings down hard enough. I sighted it in at 100 then moved back to 200 and wasn't even hitting paper. I checked my rings and they had come loose!

I was so embarrassed so I tightened them back up and went back to a hundred yards. First shot was 1" high, dead center. I couldn't believe my eyes I had gotten really lucky. So I took it back to 200, bullseye! Then we moved back to 300 and I was busting coke bottles.

In all I had a good day. This was the second time I had ever shot a rifle bigger than a 22. I had fun and cannot wait to go back!

I used to have a job where I had to go out to the range and test-fire various guns, on occasion. Sometimes to diagnose problems, sometimes to make sure I fixed them right, sometimes just to sight them in.

I'm glad to hear that the gentleman's new rifle worked out well. There's no feeling quite like it.
