.. Keep in mind that all rifles are like Forrest's "box of chocolates".. Ya never know what yer gonna git.!! Hehehe.. The best you can do is hedge your bets with top components and a competant 'smith..
..Most Remington's can be tuned to shoot reasonably well from what I've seen.. I had a well tuned VSSF that would regularly print groups in the sub .5 range till I took it out west one time and got a little happy with the PD's.. Oh well, that's what they're for, I guess..
..I've recently purchased a Savage 12BVSS and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with it's out-of-the-box accuracy.. Plus, I'm looking forward to experimenting with it's modularity.. The old style laminated stock is somewhat useless for anything but bi-pod work.. I had to put a stabilizer on it for bag work.. The new low profile may help the new Savages..
.. Either way, there's plenty of aftermarket schtuff for both.. But most of the Savage gizmo's can be installed by the user.. I think that's why gunsmith's hate'em and bad mouth 'em so much.. While they do lack craftsmanship, they also seem to work very well..
.. Good luck with whatever ya end up with.. d:^) JiNC
PS- And on that note, I'm of to LDC for a few days.. And it just figures.. The wind is a-howlin' now.!!
