    I've also got one in 7mm rem mag...I can live with the bolt knob as the gun gave me .75 in groups @ 100 meters with the first load I tried with 140 TTSX's and RL 22.... I think I'll reward it with a Boyds laminate thumbhole stock!

    Im also leaning towards a boyds for mine. I'm a bit worried that it'll be getting pretty heavy if I do that though, it's already 7lb6oz without a scope, ammo or a sling...

    Savage uses 12. I think there's a 12 BR that's 9.
