that shouldnt even be a decision man. dont be so foolish and go with the remington 700, its twice the gun. you may want to check out the browning a -bolts. i bought my 300 wsm in browning for the simple reason that the remington's only have the floor plate but with the browning its got the clip in the floor plate. its alot better then having your bullets fall to the ground ever time. makes it alot quicker to load another clip rather then have to feed them in one by one. hope this helps

I wouldn't go as far as say the remington is twice the rifle. I would be willing to bet the savage will outshoot the remington and that is coming from a Remington fan. Thumbs up

i didnt say the remington was a better shooter. but as a whole gun yes its alot nicer then the savage no doubt. keeping in mind that i have nothing bad to say about savage as i own a stevens model 200 in 22-250. the gun is deadly accurate for the mere $400 i paid for it and it uses the savage 110 bolt. all i'm saying is theres nothing wrong with a savage but they tend to be not as "pretty" i guess you'd call it. but for the no thrills hunter there a dandy rifle. i just bought a cheap stevens cause its only being used in winter time and i wasnt gonna pay an arm and a leg for just a winter gun!!!

Well...My answer would be a 2 parter...Part one...If your gonna be yote hunting you may be going through some bad stuff and alot of Belly crawling..Might get that purdy remmi dinged up. Part two... The Savage company has made some VAST improvements over the past 10 years and, I hate to say it ,but Remmington has been going backwards in thier quality. I personaly would Opt for the Savage if I had to choose between the 2. Tack driver out of the box and you wont have to explain to your wife why you are in tears because you got a scratch on your new 700 dollar gun

Well I'd had a Remington 700 BDL for 30 years and the first thing I did was take it apart and glass bed it. I got a Savage 22 mag in the mail somewhere and the First thing I'm doing it taking that apart too.
And if I win A Weatherby, that being diassembled and worked on to.
Savage make a high quality product at a very reasonable price because they don't put the money into the wood, they put it where it really should count.
The accu-trigger system is a great example

I didn't see your Post Cam till I submitted mine, I guess we're drinking from the same bowl on this one Thumbs up

Based on my recent research I would cast my vote for the Savage. Most of the Savage reviews I have read had great things to say about the savage rifle in particular about it's price and accuracy right out of the box. Most of the Remmington reviews that I read gave generally mediocre reviews and I even ran across a few flame fests on remmingtons(I found no flame fests on the savages).

My research has been by no means conclusive nor would I even consider it a scientific review. I am sure that if you dug enough you could find people who don't like savages as well but the point of the matter is that I didn't have to dig much to find them for the remmingtons.

The good thing about our opinions is that somewhere ,someone else is listening and that's the firearms manufacturers, It must be competetive beyond our comprehension and we are the people that win in the long run.
Thumbs up to the Hunting/shooting forums and our beloved Internet, otherwise most of us would never be heard Thumbs up
