the 783 is a darn fine rifle, especially at the price range ($400-ish). It incorporates the features you see in Savage (barrel nut and accu-trigger type trigger), the magazine is MUCH more solid (metal helps!) than the Ruger American. It is pillar-bedded and has a free-floated barrel
I bought mine in .270 and this gun will shoot 1 to 1.5" groups at 100 yards, using Remington Core-lockt cheap ammo and a Bushnell Banner (<$100) scope. It is my 'guest' rifle as well as a backup to my Remington 700 (it shoots just about as well too). I would not think twice about taking a 200-300 yard shot at a deer or antelope
I picked this over the Savage, the Marlin and the Ruger American because it quite frankly is a more solid firearm. Not lightweight or flimsy at all. You feel like you are holding a real hunting rifle, and that was the key thing for me. Not whether or not she's pretty
