1. The price is good.
2. Can use just about any addons for Savage rifles.
3. They are accurate.

I think with the free floating barrel and detachable rotary magazine the ruger takes it for the win in my book. Appreciate all the help guys

The mossbergs action feels tighter and operates more smoothly but I'm ok with the feel of the savage. Mossberg also has iron sights where the savage does not. Nice so I can still shoot and learn my gun while saving for a nice scope. The savages pro's are the accu stock which has fiberglass (I believe) packing between it and the barrel supposedly helping with harmonics. I love the fact that it has a detectable mag where the mossberg is top loading only. Another thing I'm worried about is mounting a bipod to the mossberg, the sling mount is molded into the stock, not the standard "button". Wondering if a bipod will mount to that. So for the 260$ extra the savage cost I get the better feeling trigger, detach mag, nicer stock, guaranteed bipod fitment, and I feel savage makes a nicer quality feeling firearm. What's your guys opinions? Also open to any suggestions of rifles available in a 30-06 with similar features if you feel there's something out there in this price range I'd like as well.

I can get the mossberg atr for 320$

And the savage for around 580$
Mossberg used to make rifles back in the day. They got away from it for awhile, but from what I've heard, the new ones really aren't all that bad.

However, at the moment a savage, or used Remington 700 has a much better reputation and can still be had for $300-$400
