I agree to this whole heartedly. I am in the process of doing a custom gun and debating on which action to use, but I have a Barlein carbon barrel with an AG composite stock, top notch! But point being is I am a big fan of just a Savage 110. they are good quality rifles with a good chamber and barrel. while they are not the most refined thing in the world and the stocks aren't the best for the money you really can't beat them.I hate to see a guy want to spend $5000 on a rifle that he will only shoot a max of 300 yards.
So, If I can get a great Savage for 700 dollars or even a nice Bergara for 900 and it shoot out to 400-500 yards perfectly fine to hit a deer or elk everytime why the hell would I spend 4k on a custom rifle to sit in a tree stand and shoot 150 yards. Truly isn't a reason.
