If you are going to stick with Savage (good choice). You owe it to yourself to check out the LRH (long range hunter) series. Heavy barrel, accustock, accutrigger, muzzle brake (which you can turn off). Altogether great package for around $850. That's not including glass.

The Creedmore looks fantastic, I can already copy it's performance in the 6.5x55 but I still want one in a heavier barreled form for strictly targets, though the regular ol 308 is not a bad choice either, it just won't hang with the Creedmore past 400yds not even with my quickest handloads.
My advice is if you ever plan to hunt get the regular 110 Savage, if you get into the long ranged shooting and love it, you can tweak it any way you like, if you feel it is not for you then you still have a fantastic hunting rifle already in hand and don't need to spend another dime on it, enjoy it for what it is.

That sounds like the best plan for now. Thanks! I still want o check out the Creedmore and see what it is. I always love looking at a new gun.
