I have a model 11 lightweight hunter in 7mm-08 that is one of my favorite rifles. Just over 6lbs with scope, it carries and points wonderfully. It has nice wood, and the licorice-fluted bolt looks great. It’s a gun I would not easily part with.

My Stevens 200 chambered in .270 win. It only has less than 200 rounds through it over the years but shoots .5x moa running my 130gr Barnes TSX hand loads. Bought it as my deer and pig rifle but seeing as how I don't hunt either of those any more it just sits in the safe :/

I have a 110 in .223, made before they offered the short action. It is a heavy, short-barreled model called the "4x4." It shoots extremely well, handloads averaging less than a half inch. I have tweaked the trigger a bit - it is not an Accu-trigger - and I put it into a Bell & Carlson stock. It is my favorite prairie dog and ground squirrel rifle but is too heavy to lug around.

I also have a Savage 340 in .30-30 that shoots unbelievably well for what it is. 170 gr Rem Corelokts over IMR4064 have shot 3/4 inch and under. I tried various spitzer bullets but the short magazine limits what bullets will work. 125 gr Sierra and 130 Hornady bullets work well but do not provide the accuracy of the RN. It has a 3-9 scope on it in a side mount.

I’ll never get rid of my Stevens 200 in .30-06, beats me to death but it’s darn accurate.

Love my .17HMR with accutrigger - it’s the standard barrel, but plenty accurate and no recoil at all (murders soda cans something fierce).

I don't have either of these, but played with in gun shops.

Stealth Evolution, bolt lift is the lightest Savage I've ever felt. Social Regressive on youtube reviewed one and said it was the most accurate rifle he's ever fired.

Model 10 GRS, because it looks weird and feels great. Uses AICS mags and all that. The stock is reported to flex a bit, but it makes only a smidgen of difference unless you're shooting a very, very long distance.

I really miss my 99 in .308.

That steel butt plate slamming into the shoulder. Nothing quite like it.

I only have one a Savage Sporter in 25-20.

Fun to shoot with 60 and 75 grain jacketed bullets and small amounts of powder.

I love my 24V in .222 and 20 gauge. It’s great for just about anything, but my favorite it a coyote/rabbits hunt. I also hunt large game only with a Savage 111 in 30.06. I may have to take the 111 for a jackrabbit hunt

The Target series and LRP series are pretty good. They make a Magnum Target single shot action now that looks cool.

My first bolt action was a .223 Savage FLV in a Mcree chassis. Still groups better at 100 yards than any of my other rifles.

Picking up a left handed Trophy Hunter w/3-9x 40 Nikon scope in 308 tomorrow.

Bought it to do some pig hunting (which I actually may never do) and to just have a "regular" rifle in the safe for some longer distance target shooting. Also picking up a Ruger PC Carbine w/it but that's another matter.

First one I got was the Scout FCM10 in .308

There are now a couple of Savage 22's keeping it company now.

I have these 4.

All have plastic stocks.

The 10FP is blued; the others are stainless.



The Axis II is my favorite 308.

I like the Mark II FSS so much that I sold my other .22 rifles.

I only own 2 savage brand rifles. Both are bolt action 22lr's

I got my 6 year old (turning 7 this month) a single shot savage rascal. Great little gun that fits small kids to teach them the basics. Plus they come in different colors.

And I have a Mark II TRR-SR. Super fun.

I have a heavy barreled .223 sitting in a Choate stock that's very accurate and fun to shoot but I do love my savage 24's (22Mag/20G & 22LR/20G). They bring back good memories of me growing up and spending time in the woods, back when I didn't have my own and borrowed one from my Brother-in-law.

A few years back, I had a Savage 112 FVS single shot in 22-250. Bolt action, but, just a follower to chamber the round. 26" heavy barrel. Ohhwee, that thing was accurate. Gone now; got into shotguns.

I have two I use for sqeaks:
A 10FCP-K in 223 Remington, and a 12FCV in 22-250 Remington.
Both incredibly accurate out of the box and remain so after over 100s of rounds.
