Well Gangster, there are many different Savage models, but overall, I've found savage rifles to be very accurate, especially given their price. And if you can get a Savage rifle that has the Accutrigger on it, which is a self adjusting trigger, then that's even better. The Accutrigger is the best stock trigger I've ever pulled on a rifle. Hope this helps.

Savage rifles

Consistently excellent quality and accuracy. Their accu-trigger is/was a most significant advance.
Time was when no one wanted one because they looked "different", with their barrel nut. Turns out that that was a very positive thing.
Generally less expensive than Winchester, Remington, Ruger, Browning, Weatherby, Kimber, etc.

Savage Rifles?

The most accurate factory made rifle in the United States!
Here is an example, A.300 Win Mag in a 111 non accu-trigger. Pencil thin BBL.
The first 5 shots went to .463" C to C. off the hood of a pickup truck.
The only thing I did prior to shooting this group was replace the factory install scope with a Nikon scope I had laying around.
The largest group I ever fired out of this rifle was one group that went to 1.1". That was my fault.
All groups shot were a 5 shot group.
Cleaning was a snap. About 5 patches and it was clean with very little copper showing.
Savage? Yeah you can spend more money but why?
