I see savage came out with a nice looking model weighing 5.5lbs. It looks like it might be really nice but I am disappointed it is only offered in 223 and the 308 family in short action. I would have loved to see 250 and 300 savage offered. Probably would have bought one. I know they had their day but are still great calibers. maybe of interest to some is the long action comes in 6.5x284. It seems this is an up and coming round.
I used to think that the 6.5 Remington was going to more popular too, and the 6.5x284 has nothing on it....But yes,gun companies still continue to chamber new rifles in the same old, tired out calibers instead of giving buyers something new and 'exciting'.
