    Anybody have any experience with one? I thought about using it as a medium range deer rifle maybe with a suppressor.

    Savage 10. great rifles. Not legal to use a suppressor for deer. Plenty legal for feral pigs, but not for game animals.

    what?! I need a suppressor on my deer rifle. otherwise I end up spooking the herd and have trouble hitting the other 4:D

    I was reading about those rifles last night. Savage is doing some pretty cool stuff. you can even buy an action with a 6oz trigger

    yeah. the savage 12 target actions come with the coveted 'red' accutrigger. Adjustable from 2 ounces to 1.5 pounds.

    Forget the suppressor for hunting deer.

    What mid range yardage? 350 yards, no problem. Other than a treaded muzzle on the HH its just another old school hunting rifle.. Back when they had open sights!! Stick a flash hider or muzzle brake and go hunting.

    My vote is a Vias brake. 35-45% reduction in recoil depending on cartridge.
