Ive handled both. The savage seems to be of better build quality and if you go that route just get an accutrigger model. Its the best Ive felt. The mossberg I had was a 4x4 and just the fit of the bolt was a huge disappointment to me. It felt cheap. All that said I can't really speak to the barrel performance of either except to say that savage has the reputation for accuracy out of the box over the mossberg. Honestly, I'm surprised mossberg still makes rifles. Ive known alot of hunters over the years and not one of them even knows someone who hunts with one. Incidentally, The NIB 4x4 I had sold at a loss of 25 bucks and took almost two years to get rid of.

Just my two cents.

Have you looked at or considered the Ruger American?

Thanks for the input though!

I own the Ruger American in 308 and 243. Love them both. You can buy one for $360-$400. They have a detachable magazine, a decent stock, adjustable trigger and very accurate for 3-4 shots.

Seriously though, howa 's action is the same as weatherby rifles since that's where weatherby get them from (Japan) IMO they are great out of the box rifles and you get a little more options on stocks which you can get to suit you. I have never shot a mossy rifle only shotgun so I can't compare but I have shot various savage and a really like the trigger set up.it all depends what u want to us it for.

I have been looking at all of the rifles mentioned. I did own a Savage 10 PC and found you can not get too aggressive with the bolt especially if the trigger is set light. The trigger would lock up if I worked the bolt to hard or fast. My grandsons model 10 in 223 did not have that problem but the trigger was set heavier. I did not like the looks of the Mossberg and the ones I looked at had a plastic mag well. The only Mossberg I like is the MVP whcih is 5.56x45 and takes AR mags. The Marlin looks very good but I like the looks and feel of the Ruger better. I have settled on getting one. The Weatherby Vanguard is also a nice looking rifle but I think it would be my 2nd choice. I think the Ruger has more going for it and the reports have been very good. and the price is around $320 on line. I dont like to jump on a new to the market gun and wait until the problems have been found and the factory has fixed the problems.
