Hey everybody, I am new to this site. I am in the market for a .270 rifle bolt action. I have been looking seriously at some made by savage firearms. I am a college student and looking for a good, affordable rifle to take to range and hunt some hogs and deer. From what I have read, a lot of people like the savage made guns. They seem to be what I'm looking for. Any suggestions, comments, advice, or anything will help. Thanks! Also, what are some other manufactures that rival savage on price and reliability?
