Re: Remington VLS vs Savage model 12 varmint low profile

With a fat long barrel the single shots solid bottom might help but with the 24" 223 varmint contour I tryed it sure didnt matter. The big benefit with a single shot is you dont have to worry about the rounds fitting in the magazine or the runout getting knocked way off from the feed ramps. I like repeaters for walk-about guns but for long range or shootin prairie dogs off the hood of the truck the single shots work just fine.

Well it seems since the rifle will be used for varmint and long range paper punching, the single shot is the way to go. I like the fact that the action will have more metal for stability may just be mental, but hey, I like simplicity.

You thinking the Mod 12 single or the Long Range precision with the target action in the single shot? 223?

What are the differences? I like the Low Profile because of the laminated stock. (old school) on my part.

Re: Remington VLS vs Savage model 12 varmint low profile

The vls is a really nice gun, I have a 22-250 and it's very accurate. I dropped in a timney at 2lbs and that made it even better. A friend has a 223 &22-250, both with timneys and set in boyds thumbhole laminates. They are Very comfortable too shoot.

Low Pro has the laminated fluted, varmint contour, and the Precision Long Range has the Target action (lighter trigger, more metal in the action) Heavy full 1" contour barrel, HS Precision Stalk with their alloy molded bedding system (not the accu-stock).
