The day I posted this I was a bit annoyed by everyone about people trying to force me into a .308 when I'm a 30-06 guy and a savage when I'm more of a weatherby guy. My range ninja comment was uncalled for and I apologize but I personally wouldn't go on a hunt with a savage. For what ever reason I don't feel like they would be the greatest gun in the field.
then go buy a Weatherby in 30-06 and be done with it. the remarks about the Savages was kind of lame. i am not a big fan of the Savages, but for me it comes down to ergonomics and how the stock fits me. i have shot a few over the years and still own one Savage rifle, and they tend to be very accurate rifles and i wouldn't badmouth one for anything, because they can and will shoot with just about any brand of rifle and hold their own doing it. if dead set on getting a rifle in 30-06 and you don't want a 308, then get the 30-06. i have both and like both of them for different reasons, but i also have many different rifles in many different calibers to choose from. don't let your friends sway your choice into somethig you won't be happy with. if you are set on a Weatherby in 30-06, then a Savage in 308 will not be a good choice for you. it's your rifle, you are the one who has to be hapy with the choice you make, not your friend.
