The savage is what I went with on the .308, the 5r Remmington would be better than a rem factory barrel for sure .

Re: New 308 And Down To Two

gonna have to agree with those that said go Savage. Mine started out as a stock package series gun, and will soon be a modded out semi-custom build, not that there was anything wrong with a gun that shot MOA or less on a regular basis, I just wanted to up the percentage of sub MOA shooting

Re: New 308 And Down To Two

Just bought a Tikka T3 308 this year WOW smooth action and it shoot a one hole group..
Its just a standard model 22" barrel, have not shot past200yards but would put down a deer
at 400 yards easy....
You have the right idea for scope power.....
Luck to you on your choice in rifles.......
