Re: Best shooting out of the box rifle
I have the same experience as Sniper 2. I have multiple 700's and Savages and the latter shoot consistantly better than the 700's out of the box. I like the smoother action feeding in the 700's but for the price you can't beat this kind of accuracy from a stock rifle if you are on any kind of budget. If you can find a Savage 116 SAK you won't find more value for the gun when you consider you are getting a fairly heavy fluted barrell, On-Off muzzle brake, adjustable trigger, and pillar bedding.
