Roll the dice

After hearing all the good things about Savage I baught one, just my luck it shot worse than the 2 Mini 14s that had the record before that.
The good news is with a Savage if you do get a bad one you can fix it yourself will ease. That worst shootin Savage lost its tupperware stock and tomato stake 223 barrel and now shoots great with a cheap laminant stock and 204 barrel
My Cooper is far and away the best shooting untouched factory gun but it cost as much as 3 Stevens!

I have 3 Remingtons, a 700 VS in .223, a 700 VSF in .22-250 and a 700 VSF in .308 that will all shoot to a 1/4" if I do my part but I also reload for them all which seemed to get that last bit of accuracy out of them. My Remington custom built rifles do that all day with ease though.

Steyr SSG's. Don't bet against them in a money shoot.

Believe it or not the most accurate rifle out of the box that I have ever shot was the remington 710 in .270. I put a 5 shot group at two hundred yards that you could put a dime over using Hornady 130gr sst. I also nailed a woodchuck at 512 yards with it. All I added to it was a limbsaver barrel deresonator and a stock extension ( I have abnormally long arms!!). I kept the original scope on it and the only problem that I ever had with it was the bolt catch release wore out and I had to get a new one which remington shipped to me free of charge. For some reason I could hit anything that I aimed at with that gun.

I own one Marlin 1895 45-70 (bought new) that shoots 1 inch with Lasercast 350g bullets using irons, one Marlin 1895 45-70 guide gun (beater gun, bought used) that shoots 1 inch with Federal 350's using irons and traded one Marlin 444 (bought used) to a friend that shoots <1 inch using the Leverevolution ammo. All shot at 100 yards. I was very surprised at the results obtained from these rifles. All stock, except the 2 45-70's had tang sights installed.
