See, I've had the opposite experience....Every Rem 700 I've ever owned shot tight cloverleaf groups, and all the Savages I've shot (other people's) were shooting 1-2 MOA groups @ 100 yards, with the exception of my buddy's Savage .17 HMR, it was shooting nice tight groups at 100 yards. And I've shot friends' Rem rifles that wouldn't shoot a 4 MOA group @ 100....Granted it was a Model 710 (which ain't no 700), but still I've shot bad Remington's as well.
So, please everybody don't think I just like to bash Savage and Praise Remington. I've had both good and bad experiences with both. I make my decisions discerningly, and use proper logic to weigh my opinions. And in the end, I have always had good luck with the Rem 700 rifles I've bought, and bad luck with majority of the Savages I've shot at the ranges and at people's houses and stuff. So for me my opinion weighs the way things have worked out for me.
I think it's all just in how the dice was rolled. I think everyone either has a good or bad experience with a brand, and the few lucky ones have had both, so they were able to realize which one they preferred.
