1/2 moa is stupid good (at least in my book
) for a factory gun shooting factory Match ammo. I have 100 rounds of the 140's I havent shot yet. the Copper Creek 130 VLD's aren't quite as good at 100 in the 3/4moa area.
I'm not sure I follow your question "how's the action?". It's just as strong as any Remington. As far as smoothness goes, this on is really smooth for a out of the Box Savage with ~50 rounds down the tube. Some of them i've handled are pretty rough, usually the low buck budget combos, I would avoid them.
The LRH should be just fine & with some use, even better. The bolt lift will always be a little heavier but noting you can't train yourself to deal with.
I would expect to payat least 2x the $$ for a custom over the factory Savage.
