I also have Remington, Savage, Ruger, Howa... They all shoot good since I've done some tweaking in them all.
Now the "but".
But if you want a higher percentage for a shooter out of the box then go with the Savage.
If you want looks better than accuracy then go with any of the other ones...

I regularly shoot factory class competition, 200 and 300 yard Egg Shoots. Five years ago first place wins were dominated by Remingtons. For the last couple of years Savage has completely taken over and the scores are significantly higher. The sample is pretty big with about 20-30 shooters,more than a dozen matches a year. The general feeling from most of the shooters is that the Savage trigger is better,the barreled action with the floating bolt head behaves like a trued action, and the barrels are pretty good. Being a Remington die hard, I broke down a while back and bought a couple of Savages. I'm now a convert as well, and my scores are definitely better.
In the past few years, Savage did get their image up, you can thank their marketing department probably reading this and preparing to counterstrike just like on many other forums, well its their tactics and they are getting paid for it and someone out there in the factory who was watching for quality. This year I wasted my money on their 2 high end models 12 LRP and 12 LRPV, both full of defects and wouldn't group less then 1.5". Guess what, I don't buy their definition of accuracy slogan...
