    IMHO, if you intend to leave it a factory rifle for ever, get a Tikka T3 lite. If you intend to have a platform for working with in the future, get a Rem SPS or a Savage.

    You can't go wrong with a savage. They are accurate, good trigger and you can get custom replacement barrels very inexpensively.

    IMHO, the accutrigger is about 50% of what makes a savage a good buy. If you don't get one w/ that trigger than you will just end up buying a different trigger for it in the future. Trigger pull is huge in accuracy.

    They changed the safety as well when they changed to the Accutrigger. It is much easier to work now with gloves on than pre-accutrigger. Another reason to get the Savage with the Accutrigger in my book.
