Fuzzy, you can't beat a Savage for a good hunting rifle. Shoot straight and stay safe.

So what kind of scope should i put on this rifle? I mean, on average im shooting about 3oo+ yards... but i also want to be able to shoot targets at maybe 6oo+ if i can find somewhere to do it... ive heard 3x9x4o will reach over 6oo yards...

If your rifle is a 7mm Remington Mag Savage 110, I would suggest a Weaver V10 for a VG scope. The Weaver has a 38mm objective and is easy to clear the barrel w/ low mounts. 2-10 is great for any hunting distance. Mine has been mounted for 5..6 years and it is a tank.
This is what I have been using on a short action, not sure it will fit a magnum action correctly. Sightron Riflescopes / Binoculars / Sighting Scopes product pages. SII Series - SII 3-12x42 AO

BTW, if you bought a new Savage package gun, it will be bore sighted already! Don't let them over charge you.
Edit: the bipod is a single screw that attaches to you sling swivel, again, that should be free.

Is this the model?? Model: 110 GXP3 http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/

I have 2 Savages in 7 MM. Really not anything I was looking for, but they were both so cheap they just followed me home. I have shoot both, but never really tried to find an accurate load for eather, but they bith shot what I put in them well enough for a 500 yrd. shot on an elk. If your are going to try to push it out there I would recomand a Leupold VX 3 in 3 1/2 x 10 with target knobs. With that and a good range finder it will reach out. I have a friend that shoots a 7 mag. and he has no trouble killing groundhogs at 500 yrds. You will need a good drop chart with wind deflection on it and some practice, but I can tell you from experance that those Savage rifles soot.
