Re: Right Out Of The Box----

I might as well jump in with both feet,

it seems that this question is loaded in favor of the pricier guns, not even custom ones, as one comment says, there is a huge difference between a $4,000 rifle and a $600 one.

I would rather see the question as to which rifle gives more value for the money out of the box. Value defined as accuracy under hunting or general shooting conditions.

Re: Right Out Of The Box----

To me out of the box is specifically a non-custom gun so I excluded Cooper. I know they aren't fully custom but you would have a hard time convincing me that they aren't at least semi-custom.

So my 3 votes would be Savage, Howa and Remington. Some older Savages were just okay, some newer Remington's have had lots of problems. Howas from the beginning to current have been rock solid.

So my vote was for Howa. The negative for them is that they are a bit harder to work on than Remmy's or Savages, fewer gunsmiths deal with them, and there are fewer aftermarket parts. But for straight out of the box accuracy results they are tough to beat. Throw in price as a factor and they can't be beat.

CZ's are another overlooked manf. IMO. I don't own any of their center fire guns but have a couple of their rim fires and they are they most accurate rim fires I have ever shot. My 453 HMR shoots one hole groups to crazy distances!

My 2 cents based on my experience.

Yep I reckon the Howa and CZ rifles are great - I've owned a CZ years ago and it was very accurate, I still own the Howa and its been a fantastic performer, accurate, reliable and for the price I'd say punching well above its weight.
