I have a savage 93R17 and it is pretty picky with ammo i sighted it in with 20 gr ballistic tips and when I shot 20 gr FMJ's the accuracy was considerable compromised but I really like the accutrigger

They have gone up a bit since I bought mine, the T3 stainless runs around $650 at some of your major retailers last I checked but the blued version runs $599, seen them on sale a few times but have not found another Stainless for $408 like I got mine.

Sweet those tikkas look pretty nice are they consistent at 500 yards?

YEP, they are often used in production class 1,000 yard matches, them and the heavy barrel Savages are always going head to head.
Tikka is made by Sako and use their barrels, best production barrel I have ever seen.

Sounds kind of pricey guys and thanks mtn I'm sure it will be a couple of months before I actually buy one. I got to save up first.
