You can't go wrong with a savage Accu-trigger. I got one 4 yrs ago and my model 700's Rem 270 and 3006 set in the gun safe, that is when my grandsons and son aren't using them. LOL My model 10 is quicker to bolt and smoother, good safety, shoots a clover at 100 yds with 150 gr factory ammo, and that's with a hot barrel too. The magazine holds 4 +1... I have shot a 308 since I was 15 and I'm 64 now. It will take down any animal in North America. It's light and easy to carry, too. Savage has come a long ways with this rifle. For the price it can't be beat.
