    Suggest that you consider the Winchester M-70 Stealth in .308 also. Recently revised to the Stealth ll but no doubt some original Stealths on the shelves. They are amazing rifles out of the box. The new Stealth ll is very nice, about like a VS only some better features. Have seen some brand new Stealths consistently shooting sub 1/2 minute, that is nice accuracy for a factory barrel. Rem. VS and VLS are also excellent shooters after a bit of work.

    Nothing wrong with Savage for accuracy, but they are Savages... Check out the Tactical model with the McMillan A-3 stock, very nice rig.

    I like the feel of the chaote sniper stocks but, dont know that I would enjoy hunting with one, unless you are sitting in a stand. They are more confortable bench resting, plus they only come in the bull barrel I do beleve (correct me if I'm wrong) which is just a little more weight to be carring up and down the hills. Just my opinion but I love the looks and feel of the stocks. Good look on your choice. By the way I own a 111 30-06 sav and love it.

    thanks again everyone. i have done a little more looking, and found a site that sells nice looking wood stocks for a reasonable price, but i have read that wood swells and shrinks with the changing humidity which affects your accuracy. is this true?
