Bastard son of the 30/06 and a great back up to the 30/06 responsible for taking a lot of game around the world. Very popular here in Australia as well where it's taken everything from foxes up to camels and sometimes buffalo though very undergunned for that.
Load it with a good 130 grain projectile and you'll never look back.

My favorite round for big hunting. You will love it and should be very accurate as Savage rifles have a good reputation for accuracy. I have shot at least 100 deer with one going all the way back to 1973. Get it and enjoy!!!
