I have also talked to some one that owns a Remmy and is going to have it set up with a barrel nut so that he can change calibers like Savage guys.
They are calling these Remington nutted barrel system a "Rem-Age". The Remington actions have nothing over the Savage action, except that it requires much higher degree of tuning to achieve similar performance that can equal a Savage. That is just a fact in 2010. A Savage action does not have to have the action/barrel interface trued to the same degree to achieve equal -performance due to the floating head bolt design. Maybe that is why Savage is making such inroads in the stock class competitions. It will not be too many more years when the old school class will see Savage in a new light. Just look at the wealth of after market Savage shooting accessories that have started flooding the market just over the past few years.
Who would have thunk it
