Forgot to add, Bell & Carlson makes a really good looking, drop in, long range stock for the Savage. This stock really gives the Savage a very attractive look, and I believe the price is around $200 to $250. Keep us posted.

That's a nice group with the stock Remington. Good shooting!! Are you using factory or re-loaded ammo?

<font color="blue">Jake,

Handloads -- but it will shoot factory ammo into a little over an inch with regularity. I'm very happy with it -- plus due to the generosity of my best friend who is a gun dealer, I got the rifle &amp; scope for his cost, so it's just an awesome deal all around.</font>

Toss up for me, Have really good shooting remmies and realy good shooting savages. Savage, Remington, Cooper are really the only rifles I have dealt with that I would suggest. Of course Customs are on the list if you find one that was built by a good smith.

Every Remington I"ve owned and worked up handloads for was an easy .75" performer, and most times .5" with the pet loads. I would go with the Remington personally.

I tried a Savage 1 time. Probly be my last. Not a very good thing when you hear all the talk about Savages, then go buy one and it cant shoot a 3 shot group to save its life. Thats what happened to me anyways. I think I"ll stick with something of a little more quality, IMO.
