Re: buying a rifle

IMHO, if you intend to leave it a factory rifle for ever, get a Tikka T3 lite. If you intend to have a platform for working with in the future, get a Rem SPS or a Savage.

You can't go wrong with a savage. They are accurate, good trigger and you can get custom replacement barrels very inexpensively.

IMHO, the accutrigger is about 50% of what makes a savage a good buy. If you don't get one w/ that trigger than you will just end up buying a different trigger for it in the future. Trigger pull is huge in accuracy.
