I am needing to replace my gun that was "lost" ,) during my divoce. It was a Savage 300. I am wanting something that will be capable of taking big game, but that I could also use for muleys without knocking them off the mountain. Also, I am looking for something that won't kill my wallet.
Here are some guns that I have been looking at, and I would like some feedback please. I found a Tikka T3 Lite SS 338, but I would also need to get a scope for it which would put the cost well over 1k. There are a ton of 300 WSM out there, and I was also looking at a Savage 16FxP3 package 325 WSM (includes the scope) for just over $600. I am wondering if there is a reason that this Savage is so much cheaper (there usually is).
Any help/feedback would be appreciated!!!
