Re: Best choice for starting out

for out of the box, the savages are head and shoulders above the Ruger.

Lot of aftermarket items for savages versus none for ruger.

You can get a Rifle Basix trigger for the Ruger and have it factory preset to 1# if you wish. That's what they told me anyway. But an aftermarket stock might be hard to come by if at all. The one thing I do NOT like about the Ruger is the angled action screw.

Since Savage has been mentioned, I'd strongly advise you go with them. Pull button bbl, nice trigger, pillar bedded. You can't go wrong.
