Watch the scope bases, Savage's have 2 different styles. Older models used round fore and aft bases where the newer has one that's flat. So pick carefully when shopping or that bargain/close-out price won't be such a bargain.
I just started using Nikon ProStaff BDC 3x9-40mm myself. Nice scopes for the money, $125-$150, pretty crisp and clear. The 4x16-50mm is a bit of overkill on a deer rifle but woulddo wellon a varminter's rig for smaller targets/longer distances. So it should be fine for your dual purpose, I suppose. What caliber you thinking on?
