Default Which Savage?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have been looking for a new deer rifle and have narrowed my caliber to the 270 WSM but I cant decide on the gun. I'm looking at a Savage 11/111 FCNS and the Savage 16/116 FCSS. If your not familiar with the guns here are the links to each. Any experience, suggestions, or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Asking what rifle is suitable for you,is as asking what girl should you Marry,only you can decide your personal hunting rifle,hunting conditions only being one of them..

Really the only difference between those two models is the finish. The model 11 is blued steel,and the 16 is all stainless steel.
Both have the Accu-stock,Accu-trigger,and a detachable box magazine. Either one would be a nice rifle,it all depends on the finish you like best.

I have a model 11 270 WSM it is a fine shooter with both factory ammo and handloads, no accustock or anything fancy like that but shoots good regardless. I will end up replacing the stock soon, not for any accuracy issues but because mine is a rare bird with iron sights and no rifle looks right with old school sights and a plastic stock, every time I look at it it is just begging for some walnut. If you want a super 270 WSM consider the Tikka also, ask anyone who owns one they will tell you. I have a Tikka 6.5x55 and to call it a tack driver is an understatement, it shoots one smooth hole groups with cheap hunting bullets.
