I like mine too. I padded the stock for proper scope cheek weld and mounted a 3-12x40 AO MD for now. I have a Harris bipod onit. On the road right now but I am going to make a kydex riser for the stock when I get home. Savage still has not figured out that the drop is wrong for scopes even though I have told them several times. I have only been able to sight it in at 25 yards so far but it is one ragged hole with match ammo. I have not tried HV. 22lr gets its max velocity between 16" and 18" depending on the rounds. You will lose velocity after 18".
