Heres my Remington reciever @ 800 yard line.

I have a Surgeons reciever on another target rifle but it's no more accurate for me than the Remington 700.

Oh almost forgot... Here's the 100 yard zero. 5 rounds in one ragged hole.

And to be fair the reciever was trued by Krieger with their barrel and I'm running a Jewell trigger, but you would have to do that with any bolt reciever to get these kind of bug holes. Also, alot of practice as this kind of shooting has a shelf life.

Much easier to build on a Savage action, but you dress them up they are both capable of the same accuracy. I go Savage over Remington every time nowadays.

depends on whether you want to actually build a rifle or take an existing rifle and make it look tactical. depends on how much you want to spend and what you want the finished rifle to be capable of when finished. also depends on how mauch you can do vs. what you have to have gunsmith do for you.

Savage for no particular reason.

My 2 cents,


The Savage IMHO is the mot accurate out of the box commercial rifle available. The US F class uses non modified factory Savage rifles at that. For me though, I can't get past the loose feeling of the receiver and bolt. Even a worked Savage bolt to my hands just does not feel anywhere close to the smoothness of a good 700 Bolt. Mike at TAC Ops does Great work if you can get one in...

With pawn shop find for a good matte receiver, a decent barrel, Lilja is good and semi available, and something like a Manners stock, blue print and true, receiver and bolt, GTG

I like Savage rifles, they are very accurate but I think you would find more options as far as building a rifle with the 700. More trigger/stock options are available for the 700. Probably more barrel options too.

if you go to many of the custom barrelmakers, they offer a lot of choices for the Savage rifles too.

Actually,There isn't much difference when it comes to aftermarket barrels/stocks/or triggers for either brand.
It all depends if you want a rifle that you can do all the assembly yourself,or if you want to pay a gunsmith to assemble it for you.
