I have the bigger sister to your scope 8-32x56mm SIII. That is one hell of a scope for under $1k. TXH how do you like yours?

I've got 5 of them,and also a SII 4-16x42. I love Sightron scopes!
I'm going to be getting a NSX 5.5-22x50 for my 6.5 Creedmoor as soon as I get some projects out of the way. Right now it has my SIII off my 308 on it.

Day dreaming of course,since I don't know your whereabouts,but I think/know a Savage will beat your Remington at 100 yds,my best 308 Savage prints a three round at .354 clover a that range,with Harris bipods on the bench,I'd bet you rifles if we could meet at a shoot out..

both rifles have their merits and both can be very accurate. both have excellent reputations for being accurate and IMO really comes down to the shooter more than the brand of rifle. familiarity and personal preference can have huge advantage of ones ability to shoot one rifle more accurately than the other. i have shot many Savages over the years that were very, very accurate, but my personal preference is the Remington M700 because off the shelf and box stock they tend to fit me better than the Savages. so in a nutshell, i would probably shoot a Remington better than the Savage. but that doesn't take anything away from the Savage or make it lees accurate than the Remington by any means. and also, a Savage is one rifle that i also give recommendation for when someone is looking for a rifle. they are a dang good rifle, but they just don't fit or feel right to me when i shoulder them.

Having reloaded for a bunch of hunting rifles one thing I can say is I have yet to come across a bolt action rifle from any reputable manufacturer that was not capable of MOA accuracy with something, that said the Savages were easier then most to stroke that accuracy out of (my Browning was the hardest), of course none of them come close to the Tikka that for some odd reason I have a really hard time finding anything it won't shoot MOA or better even the super cheap factory fodder goes 3/4" with boring regularity. I always joke that if I could cram bricks down the bore they would be touching holes at 100, the one and only thing it won't group great with is the Berger VLD a super consistent match grade bullet, now THAT is ironic.

Savage for sure ... 700s aren't that great. I also have a TC Venture in 308 and its the most accurate rifle I ever shot with factory tc aka Simmons scope..

I really don't see what the pissin match is about. Yes,Remington's Quality has been hit on for a while,but they still build a great rifle.
Savage makes a great rifle in the 10/110 series,but I wouldn't have any of their entry level stuff.The Marlin X series is a much better rifle than the Savage in that dept.
Howa,CZ,Tikka,Thompson Center,Winchester and Browning all make excellent rifles.
To say that a particular brand of rifle is junk,is a pretty stupid comment. Everyone makes lemons,and some models are junk,but not every model from a certain brand is.

As with anything in this world,You get what you pay for. If you buy an entry level version of a particular model of rifle and expect to shoot a new world's record group,you're probably not going to do it. The cheaper the price,the cheaper the components that were used to assemble the weapon.
Guy's bitch about the entry level Savage/Remington stocks,but don't want to pay the extra $300-800 for the same rifle that has a top of the line stock on it. You want a cheap rifle,you got one.
I've got a big stack of those tupperware stocks out in my shop,that's the first thing I do on almost any rifle I buy-Upgrade the stock.

It's a fact of life-Put a good stock,trigger,and quality optics on a rifle,and the damn thing will shoot good!

I prefer the 700. I've shot the Savage, and they are truly awesome, just prefer the tested 700 action.
