Remington or Savage?

Guys, I just want some opinions. Planning on purchasing a .243/6mm and wanted to know if some of you had ever shot these rifles and which one is superior? Savage 12bvss or 700 vls. Greatly appreciated!

Shot pds @ over 1000 yds w/my stock BVSS .243 w/the 105 amax. I have no complaints w/it. It's currently in MT getting a makeover though!! I was pretty rough on it and the bbl only lasted about 1500 rds.

I am quite partial to the remington vls. They shoot very well and the action feels so much better than the savage, at least to me. I would go with the .243, the brass selection is so much better

Re: Remington or Savage?

I just bought a savage stevens 200 for 269.00 at gander mtn I did the trigger to 2 lbs and put a bushnell 4200 4x16x50 on it and with 70 grain bal tips and 52grns of varget it shoots around a half inch at a hundred.I was really surprized,and it weighs 6 1/2 lbs.I'm gonna use it for coyotes for longer shots.I use a rem lvsf 221 fireball for shots up to 300,I was using a rem vssf 22-250 for longer shots but it,s heavy.I'm a gunsmith and ten years ago I wouldn't buy a savage but they came a long way,and if you check in savage shooters.com you can buy barrels and change calibers.

Re: Remington or Savage?

sorry, I havent shot either of these two exact rifles. I have shot both savages and remingtons though and all of them I have shot shoot under 1moa. In fact all of the remingtons and savages I have shot shoot under 1/2moa at 100yrds. The only one I have shot that didn't shot under 1/2moa is a 300rum in an lss but even it shoots under 1moa. The only rifles I've dealt with are remingtons, winchesters, rugers, and savages. The only one that I've found aren't real good shoters are the winchesters. I shot 1 out of three that shoot under 1moa at 100yrds and the rest were shooting somewhere around 1.5-2 moa. Not trying to slam winchesters or people who love them but i'm not impressed so far.
I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
