Ok, not trying to make a Savage vs Remington thread, but those are the two rifle I am looking at. I was set on the Savage, when someone suggested this Remington. I don't know enough to decide which is "Better" but I am partial to the Savages. Here is what I was planning to get. Savage 308 20 5R THREAD BL $728.00 SHIPS FREE And here is what was suggested to me. Remington 700 SPS TACT AAC-SD 308 Hogue Overmolded Ghillie Green $645.00 SHIPS FREE Really at a loss to know which would be better for a beginner.
