I know on the one sight I frequent, a sniper instructor holds the FN's in high regard. So that should give you some idea of its ability.

Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

I know Savage is one hellova accurate rifle fresh from the box but if your scope is of poor quality
don't blame the rifle..
In my view the Savage is ugly and deadly in one package, its no Remington, Sako or even
a Winchester.
but I have seen plenty of fantastic shooters named Savage. #1.

They are equivalent to the 700 customs from the Remington custom shop.

Should shoot sub MOA with decent factory ammo, and with a little tweaking (read bedding etc) and a quality scope should shoot sub 1/2 moa with ease.

It's a factory gun though not a custom so there's going to be some variations and this you'll have to find a load it really likes to get the best possible results, but to an extent you'll do the same with any custom.

Retails around 925-975.00

I prefer the Rem 700 though just due to availability of parts/aftermarket upgrades etc.

So far it has been the Bushmaster Varminter, but I have not gotten my Savage LRP yet. The Bushy shoots sub MOA groups with 40gr, and 55gr Vmax factory ammo out to 300yds and if I was a better shot maybe even further.

Re: Out of the Box Accuracy

To answer the question so far to this day my Savage Mod 12LPV in 22-250. It would stack 'em in there with sub 1/2 MOA all day long it sported a Leupold 6.5-20X40 with VH Recital

I am waiting on 2 rifles right now. One is a Savage Mod 12 Long Range Precision in 260Rem and a Remington Sendero SFII in 264 Win Mag. I really have high hopes for both. They will be here Friday and I will start barrel brake in and load development on Saturday.
