@TNDaveLooking at obtaining the venerable 338 Win Mag as I have a 264, 300 and 458 and am wanting to fill the gap. My dilemma is I have found a Savage 10/110 Storm with 24” barrel and a Winchester Super Grade with 26” barrel, both are new and at reasonable prices in today’s market.
I love and am a sucker for the classic Winchester look and feel of blued steel and walnut, while the Savage is stainless with composite stock.
Question is, is the Winchester worth $400-$500 more in price break and taste versus performance? With all said above, I don’t need either one, just don’t have a 338 to fill the gap.
The chinwester looks good BUT straight out the box the savage will run rings around the chinwester for accuracy every day of the week and twice on Sundays.
The Savage is the Cinderella of rifles, might not be pretty but it is a good performer in all weather's.
Do you want a tolls Royce you keep in the garage or a check track for every day use.
The money you saved w ith the savage buys a lot of ammo.
