I too have the Savage and love it. Consistently shoots MOA or better out to 150. I have shot it to 200, but results went downhill fast. I've killed a couple of fair sized hogs with it, but that was just because it was all I had at the time. Anything from a squirrel up to a coyote is dead meat if it gets within 150 yards.
Silver spurs and gold tequila
keep me hanging on.
Pretty girls and old cantinas
give me shelter from the storm.
