Trigger on the LRP is a Target accutrigger and the VH is the basic accutrigger. The LRP I can get for $999 or the VH is $861 out the door. So is the extra $220 ish worth it??
Savage does three different Accutriggers. The varmit trigger being the middle one, and nowhere as good as the one that comes with the PTA actions. The LRPV's are so good that they've been banned from a lot of long range shoots, even though they are a standard factory rifle. The down side of the target trigger is that you must work the bolt slower to make it cycle correctly
The difference is upto the shooter's needs. I'd ask the dealer what he would sell you a custom shop rifle for. They list for $1725, but are a different animal that the LRPV. The one I looked over came with a three shot test target that was about .150" using off the shelf 6BR ammo! Plus you can buy it in just about any caliber that Savage sells, plus some they don't sell
