50 years more likely....... I came across a Savage 340 in 30.30 a few weeks ago in rather good shape. They were not known for super accuracy and as most ended up as iron sight 'truck guns' the ones seen today in pawn shops & such tend to be in pretty rough shape. This one caught my eye as it only had some sun-damage/fading on the stock. I happily paid $325. The scope has the German-style sniper reticle. I removed the scope, rings & mount, cleaned everything and reinstalled with proper torque. No borsite but it hit paper on the first shot and properly walked across the target with corrections from my spotter. 18 rounds later she was zeroed with two 7/8s groups, done. I was shooting Remington 170g Walmart stuff. A nice solid rifle. I'll bag an Elk with it in a few years as the Family relocates to Montana.
