Obviously you have had some issues with Savages. I think if you look around the web you are an exception to the rule. As far as the triggers go I have custom rifles
with Jewel triggers and for a hunting rifle I would put my accutrigger against any. Obviously if you are shooting competition bench rest the Jewell would win. I will never build another custom rifle
with a custom action as I do not see the value over my Savages. Savage offers many different choices with firearms that most can not rival. Remington is really the only other manufacturer with the number of options. I have a factory Remington magnum sporter that shoots better than .5 moa out to 700yds(farthest I have shot it) but more Savages shoot like this out of the box than Remingtons in my experience. To the OP you can not go wrong with either rifle but again they are two different animals.
