thats a good round and the ballistics are great. but the downside is that is a handload only caliber, as there is no factory loaded ammo for it. matter of fact i'm in the process of building one on a remington M700 action.
try Brownells, thet carry some Savage barrels. don't remember if they fit the model 200 or not. check them out.
