your kinda compairing apples to figs , the 700 P comes with a great stock and their barrels arn't the run of the mill tubes that most of the factory guns get. I have't seen a 700 P series rifle that woulden't shoot in the 1/2 moa range with handloads and the basic little tune ups

the Savage your looking at is a quality rifle but the stock is garbage , you can get it spend another $100 on the B&C Duramaxx stock and it will help out alot.

As for building on , well both are great platforms to build on later if you want and the Savage can be chambered for the RUM's with no trouble if the barrel is fitted up like the Remington. The Remingtons have alot more aftermarket goodies for them and will hold their resale alot better.

you can get a great pre-fit Shilen barrel for your savage at accuracyarms.com. It is only $269 for a selcect match grade stainless, shipped.
Kevin Rayhill at Stockade will put a match barrel on your gun for $330.
Go to savageshooters.com for lots of good savage info.

I've heard this before, what problems do they see if you have the large shank Savage and install the barrel correctly? If there where problems, you would think that Shilen, Pac-nor et. al. wouldn't be selling the RUM drop in barrels for the Savage due to fear of litigation.

The RUM is a big cartridge, but runs the same pressures as other magnums that I've never heard had problems in the savage?

Just curious what the real scoop is, or if its supposition repeated as fact, or if there is some fact to base the supposition on etc.

Thanks,
AJ

Rem 700p all the way. I have one in 7mm mag and like the other guy said, it shoots under 1/2" all day long. A friend of mine has it in the 300 wm and his is also a shooter.
