Re: Action: Savage or Remington
The savage target action I think is the better way to go. You would have to put more money into a rem 700 to make it shoot as good as the savage out of the box, action wise. I have two of the target actions and had nothing done to them other then take them out of the box screw on a barrel and what not and they just plain old shoot. The only way to do that with a 700 is to spend thousands of dollars on a custom action. The target accutrigger is a fine trigger and wouldn't need to be replaced unless you want too. I just built a 6.5x47 Lapua for my wife that will shoot in the .2's all day long. In the end which ever way you choose to go you will be ok. It will be just a matter of how much you want to spend to get there. If you go savage you will have more money to put towards better glass and still have your favorite deer rifle to use. You will not want to be lugging a 17# rifle around deer hunting for very long.
