I've been thinking of trading my Savage 12 BTV .223 (thumbhole heavy barrel) that I use to target shooting and getting something with more punch. Not that paper needs more punch, but I want something different. I know, get a .308. Yawn. Everybody's got one. I found a heavy barreled Savage called a model 12 low profile varminter. Pretty close to what I already have but I found out you could get it in .300 Winchester short mag. Now that is interesting. Anybody got one of these Savage's? How about accuracy potential of the cartidge at 200 yds.? Just wanting to play with something different and have never had a magnum rifle before.
