I have Savage 12VSS, in .308, I also own Remington Sendero, and Remington Varmint Rifles. I give the slight edge to the Remington Varmint Rifle. Don't get me wrong the Savage can shoot. If looks are a consideration, and possibly customizing the rifle down the road, then the Remington takes it hands down.

The .308 is good for punching paper at up to 1000 yards, if you have that much adjustment in your scope. If you are looking to hunt with it your effective range is going to be way under that. If you are looking for something to punch paper with at 1000 yards and a good long range hunting rifle try a .300 RUM. It's also a great platform to build a real long range shooting rifle.

SORRY GUYS THIS POST WAS MEANT TO BE A REPLY TO CROSMAN'S POST. IT PUT IT HERE BY MISTAKE.........

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
