Any 7mm will be able to shoot 1000 yards, no matter who makes the gun.
If you want precision at 1000 yards, that's another story. Savage would not even be in the ballpark of consideration for me. A precision 1000 yard rifle is NOT something you comes straight out of a box. It's usually something that is built. For me, it would be a Remington 700 action and a Shilen or Hart barrel pillar-bedded and free-floated by a gunsmith with a custom target crown.
If you want 1000 yard optics, Swarovski for sure. Possibly Leica.
