With either rifle there is enough aftermarket support to modify either rifle into whatever you'd like. Remington will have the edge in aftermarket support.

I would go with the remington. Savage has come a long way and probably shoots just as well, in the end know matter how well the savage shoots it's still a ''savage'' that's the way it's viewed were i'm from

Have you read Jerry Teo's article: Long Range Hunting Rifle On A Budget?

I've owned 6 Rem 700s, but reading his article makes me want to try a Savage due to the ease of user barrel swaps and the lack of need for action blueprinting.

Here is another well written review on the topic you are asking about:

remington 700 SPS Varmint

Pay special attention to the second to last paragraph on the page because it talks about the accuracy comparison of a savage vs remington.

There are a lot of remmy sps tactical and other configurations on gun broker .com.
Got my sps in 2 weeks from the time of oredering. There are tons of these rifles avaiable there for 500-600 dollar range,

+1 for the savage 10fp - I have one in .308

YMMV but a 175gn Nosler Custom Competition loaded to touch the lands measures 2.826 OAL and fits the magazine just fine in my gun.
