Yes they are accurate enough if they are true.(All or not).
I recommend replacing the barrel nut with a shouldered barrel makeup for several reasons,
It allows the use of a larger barrel breach end (1 1/4" instead of 1") and it eliminates the
extra thread makeup. Also on a rifle made for specific use where changing barrels is
not nessary. Also replace the recoil lug with an after market precision ground lug (The factory
lugs are never the same thickness from one side to the other.
Also the fact that the bolt head "Floats" does not make it square when its fired. It is not designed
to automatically line up with the case head it just allows the bolt head to rotate while operating the
bolt and should be checked for true and squared if nessary.
I have had great success with setting up the Savages this way and I am convinced that It is a more
consistant way of building an accurate rifle plus getting rid of the ugly barrel nut is a bonus in my
