    Buy the Savage and take the money you would have spent on the Browning or Remington and put into the glass. You won't regret this decision!!

    If your speaking of factory production rifles, it would be the Savage that got my vote. They do make the barrels the old fashion way and they are accurate. Now couple that with their new trigger and it makes it a very accurate rifle for the working man, who can't afford a $3000 dollar and up shooter. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I would say remington. I bought 1 savage in a 270 wsm and it wouldn't group better then 1.5" at 100 yards. I tried 4-5 difernt bullets with 3 different powders, with 2 different primers. Rifle would put 2 shots very close to touching or .5", but would completely throw the 3rd away every freaking time on every group on every combo tried. I never shot on windy days and waited 1-2 minutes between shots. I think I was the sole one to get a crapper savage. Needless to say, I sold it shortly after to someone who didn't mind 1.5" groups. I however look for 3/4" groups from a factory rifle at 100 yards, never had a remchester/ruger that would not do this for me. I'll probly never buy another savage based on my experience with it.
