new rifle opninions needed

Hello all I am having a hard time deciding between a few rifles for my next purchase. this rifle will be a 243 but I can't decide between a savage model 12 vlp a remington model 700 vls or a ruger m77 mkII target... this gun will be used for about 80% long range bench shooting and some varminting ( mostly coyotes) I am a lefty but am buying a right haeded gun brcause of the comfort an shootablity off the bench.
so lets here the opinions...

Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge

Savages shoot great, Remmies shoot great.

You have a little more flexibility with the Savages if you are a tinkerer.

McMillan is the class of stocks, if you have time to wait. But there are others that are just as good without the 'bling' value

PS: I've never really cared for the Ruger, but thats just plain old fashion bias

so I went into the shop and handled all the above mentioned rifles and chose the savage becase I loved the accutrigger, and out of all three the anwser I kept getting on which is the most accurate out of the box rifle was the savage. the remmy was a close second but it has the monty carlo stock and being a lefty it did not fit that well. now I just have to decide on what to mount on it for glass....
