Shop around for a M70 Extreme Weather in that price range. Or a M70 Featherweight if you like walnut & blued steel.
For what you paid, you can have it sent out for cerakote and put it into a McMillan fiberglass stock.
That stock would have to go.
You bought another wood stocked rifle to "replace" your current wood stocked rifle?
Why not have a stainless synthetic...
The Compact is fairly common and still in production. The Ultralight has been discontinued for now. Those are a bit harder to come by.
For what you are using it for, I'd say the 300 Win Mag is fine. No reason to go up in recoil with the 338.
I would sell the Savage and use the cash to fund a new McMillan fiberglass stock for the M70.
You bought it used. Who ever owned it prior got some rust and cleaned it up with steel wool. Send it off to Eddie Fosnaugh and have it cerkoted....

I'm thinking of the 750.
I have read on numerous boards that Remington took steps to improve the jam o matic tendencies exhibited in the 742. I know of hunters who use the...
You're "not into 30-30"? How does that work?
Barrel life is longer on the 7mm-08 vs the 243.
30-30 all the way.
Buy a used 700 or one of the cheaper box-store 700's that cost $400 and have it rebarreled to 260. Simple enough.
D. Cheap rifle with $300 scope
Savage Axis with a Leupold VX-2 3-9X40mm?
Speed kills effectively, as does foot pounds and large holes. A 223 is plenty to kill deer, and a 45-70 is more than enough. I think that most...
Get a Redfield Revolution and make your new rifle happy.
If I was all in on using irons, I'd find a 1950's era Winchester 94 in 32 Winchester Special or 25-35.
