Re: Need info Rem 700 SPS or Savage 111 F
I like my Savage rifles better than my Remingtons.
I have two Savage actions. Both are long actions. One a magnum bolt face and the other is a standard bolt face. I swap barrels around on a frequent basis.
I swap between 220Swift, 22-250, 22-250AI, 308, 243, 270, 284win, 7mag, 7wsm, 30-06, 300wsm, 300win.
It takes me about 5 minutes to swap a barrel off and on. If I want to swap bolt faces in case I need them both to be magnum or both to be standard, it takes another couple minutes.
If you want to swap calibers freely and easily, Savage is the clear winner.
If you want a repeating rifle in a big booming cartridge, Remington has a bit more capability as well as a much larger following.
Both are good dependable factory rifles.
For Savage stocks, Stockade stocks are very tough to beat.
