Savage Tupperware stocks are kinna flimsy but truth be told mine all shoot great despite the stock being a little flexy, my 30-06 holds 1/2" easy with RL19 and 150gr Accutips and my 270 WSM shoots one ragged hole with IMR4350 and 130gr SGKs, if the stock had any negative effect on accuracy I have sure not seen it yet.

I personally have never understood why they are so popular. They aren't bad by any means, but not great either (IMHO). That being said, try it out and see if you like it. I was close to getting a savage a while ago, but after handling it and dry firing it, it just "didn't feel right" to me. Like was mentioned above, the tikka has a great trigger as well. Good luck.

I couldn't shoot **** with me old one, 6+ MOA groups. But I was easily able to get sub-MOA with my AR. Either the gun or the scope, to ticked to take the time and money to find out with one. So I started with a new slate. Don't regret any of it.

Were you using a package scope? I had that problem twice, both times I ripped that POS Bushnell off and replaced with a Nikon or Leopold and I was back in buisness. Savages are bullet picky or at leased all six of mine have been, they might not shoot what you were hoping but they will deliver the goods with at leased a few popular bullets. All of mine have loved Sierra Game Kings.

I've got one on my 17HMR and I love the thing. It breaks so cleanly and theres no creep to it at all, I also don't notice any type of over travel either. If I could, I'd have one put on my .243, but its made by a totally different company.

I shot Winchester, both cheap and expensive, hornady, federal, and many other brands. But like I said, my old one just did not have what I wanted . And yes I was using the package scope. I know I could have replaced it and gotten better groups but I replaced it with an amazing savage so I'm happy.
