As stated, they are no-frills firearms. Savage is well known for off the shelf accurate rifles though and you can either try different factory loads to find what it likes or if you reload, you can customize a load that shoots well in your rifle.
Some folks will use them as the basis for semi-custom rifles as well - swapping out the barrels and stocks and triggers and bottom metal and anything else to make a bug-hole shooter out of them.
Pay it forward - Kids are the future.
Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.
