Does the Savage have the accu-trigger? If it did I would tell you to go with it. I have several Savages with Sharp Shooter triggers and one with the accu-trigger. The accu-trigger is awesome! The regular Savage triggers suck!

The 243 would not be too big of a step but I know women who find the 270 perfect for them. The 243 would be better for both deer and varmits. I'd get the 243 and later step up when her confidence grows.

ok the Savage is pre Accutrigger, I really didn't get a definate 6 to 1 ratio so I went ahead and got both. I made a deal to trade my 1100, SKS and $150 cash for both. What do you think.

I never did think I would step down from my many 12 gauges until I traded for a Rem. 1100 Lt 20 gauge with a 21 inch barrel and an english grip stock. No recoil and a great little field gun. This past month I was hunting with a couple of friends that were using 12's and I was dropping just as many with my little 20 gauge as they were and it wasn't near as heavy. I have a set of extended choke tubes for mine ranging from cylinder to full. My favorite is skeet for quail.

It was a hunting preserve over in Mayview. Released birds. Too much clean farming anymore.
