Pretty much any savage rifle you buy will shot damn good. If for some reason you get one that wont hold groups then send her back to the factory and they will fix the prob. good customer service. Know remember it may not like the ammo you want to shoot in it but most all of them will shoot something very well. Comparing feeding problems in a automatic to a bolt action isnt really a far comparison and if said auto is having problems, send her back and they will fix it. Everyone is entitled to a lemon once in a while.

I would be more than willing to bet you buy the gun and you will be very very happy with it. I believe it is a dip camo pattern so it is tuff but can chip off with time but with some care it wont be a prob.

Bottom line is Savage rifles shoot good, if you disagree try a couple out and then report. they aint pretty and the synthetic stocks a FAR from a mcmillan but they just plain shoot.

To answer your question about the 75 gn. bullets would be iffy. But, the big question is why do you need that heavy of bullet in a .223 anyway? I like the 55 gn. bullets for coyote and prefer 50`s for about everything else. As for Savage rifles I think that they make a real good rifle, and since I`m into wildcating I like the ease with which you can change your own barrels. I built a .22-6mm on a Savage action and expect this to be a real barrel burner, but when it`s shot out I`ll just put another barrel on it.

Good luck to you, I hope you can afford to use the best quality bullets you can find.

they had a problem with mags and feed problems. check their website they'll send you another free. I have one (22) and have nothing but good to say about it.

My Neighbor has a Savage Predator Hunter in .223 and he is very happy with it. DOn't buy the matching scope though. That was the first thing he replaced.

I was smart enough to buy a Savage 17 HMR

I was smart enough to buy a 17 HMR, man can it shoot. It will shoot dimes at 100 yards all day long. In my opinion Savage is one of the most underrated gun manufacturers out there. Its accuracy is dead even with my dad's CZ that cost twice as much.
It ain't broken till its on fire!

I have a predator in the 22-250. I got mad when I bought it because it was advertised on the net with a 1 in 9 twist barrel and it actually had a 1 in 12 twist. Customer service told me it was a typo. I worked a deal out with them and they put a 1 in 9" twist barrel on it for me, but the barrel isn't camo. It loves the 75 grain bergers now and I am very happy.

I just bought a Predator in 233 and love it. Had a factory scope (Simmons) and it was 5 in high and 2 left at 100 yds 1st shot out of it. Shot a 3 shot group it has all three almost in the same hole with 50 gr V Max and H-335, perfect cloverleaf. I'm impressed. Loading 60 gr V Max now, I'll see if it shoots those as good, it should
