From the Savage custom shop: Model 16 action with 24" magnum-weight barrel in .243 Winchester, in a laminated thumb-hole stock.
At ten pounds, it's a bit heavy for a sporter, and a bit light for a varmint rig. Like the .243 cartridge, it is somewhere in-between, neither fish nor fowl.
I use it to shoot bug-holes at the range, it's a fun gun - but it could be pressed into service as either a sporter or a varmint rig.
