Re: Which is 'better' - Savage, or remington.
I have both. They can both be super accurate, mine are all 1/2 MOA or better.
The following is my opinion.
I like the feel of the Remington bolt throw, not as 'sticky/sloppy' as Savage.
I like the location of the safety better than the Savage.
More aftermarket parts avail for Rem 700 than Savage. Triggers etc.
Can swap barrels yourself.
Accutrigger is pretty darn good once you get used to it.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
