    I plan on building a rifle for tactical/sniper competitions later this year or so. I was wondering which rifle you guys would start out with, a savage 10FP or a Remington 700 VLS. I plan on buying the rifle first and then upgrading as time and money come along. I have had good luck with Savages before but the remington/AI combo seem to dominate at most of the competitions i go to. i really like the Accurracy International stocks for a 700. They are about the same price as a McMillan for the savage but have adjustable check piece and detachable mags. Just curious what you guys would start out with, both are around the same price with factory options.
