Savage is hard to beat for the money, owned several of them, still have one in 30-06 and another in 270 WSM as good as anyone would ever need a hunting rifle to be without question, my 06 drills 1/2"-3/4 groups with 150gr Accutips and RL19, and my 270 WSM can give me the occasional one hole if I can hold up my end of the bargin. Only issue I ever had with a Savage was related to the flimsy plastic stock, my brother somehow managed to twist it where it was pushing against the barrel (easy fix). While I don't like the feel of the Accutrigger as much as some of my higher end guns it certainly does work as advertised. Savages do have some rough rifling but it smooths out nicley after it's 100-200 rd break in.
Savages are normally bullet picky though, they might not shoot what you were hoping they would but they will shoot tight with plenty of bullets. If all else fails get some Sierra Game Kings, all of mine have shot them well.
