Re: Best FACTORY Rifle

Cool, we were looking at the 12FVSS.
Do you guys think the BVSS is better?

Is there anything wrong with the synthetic stock of the Savage?

Lastly, how do you guys think it compares to the Sendero?

Re: Best FACTORY Rifle

There is nothing wrong with the Remingtons. I will be the first to admit that they are accurate. However, The Savage is at least as accurate out of the box Ė maybe better, and if you get the Accutrigger you will be ruined for life. I havenít felt a Remington trigger that didnít need work Ė EVER. I will say that the finish work is nicer on the Remington. The savage action is rough in places and could stand some hand-finishing and lapping, but none of that makes any difference to the target. Iím still a die-hard Mauser fan, but I already have twice as much in my latest Mauser than I do in My Savage, and I havenít bought the barrel or the reamers yet!

I wrote to Sharp Shooterís Supply and asked if they would sell me a threaded barrel that was not chambered. They said they would be happy to accommodate me. Price was good too.
Attitude is EVERYTHING!

Re: Best FACTORY Rifle

I have a new 300 WSM Savage with the accutrigger. The rifle is darn nice, shoots well and the trigger is about as good as my Jewell on a 700 except that the whole rifle was only $50 more than the trigger was.

Great value for the money. I'm going to replace the plastic stock, but next year. Out of the box, all it needs is a decelerator instead of that crummy hard plastic pad.

Put a Bushnell scope on it ($200) with Weaver rings and bases ($30), and you're up to $630. Spend the other money on practice, and dies, etc.

I am presuming he's hunting and not shooting. If he's just shooting, then the previous post makes a lot of sense.

Re: Best FACTORY Rifle

JohnM ... The BVSS stock is much better than the plastic Savage stock (IMO) for about $50 more than the FVSS. I have several and like them very much. The 112BVSS is available in 7MM Rem Mag and 300 Win Mag. The 12BVSS in 300 WSM and 308 Win.

But, if a Remington 700 VS, VLS or Sendero are available at a good price, they are very good rifles and the trigger is easily adjusted. My VS w/J-lock is a great shooter, but my Savage rifles are my favorites. The BVSS stock fits me perfectly!
