Based on my limited experience Coopers and CZs are great investments but have only had one of each. Sold the Cooper to buy three Savages,they can bury me with the 527CZ in 223
Have had three good shootin Rugers but it took a little work to get them there so out of the box they dont fair well. A 308 VT never did get better than MOA no matter what I did to it.
My best and worst shooting rifles have been Savage/Stevens....Oddly enough both in 223??
Bought a winchester 22-250 back when Fido was a pup that was just plain awfull.
Long way around the barn but I voted Savage because even if it dont shoot I can swap out barrel/stock and trigger to get it shooting.....Like it or not cost is relative in most of our worlds
