    Both are good rifles,Just pick the one that fits you best.
    I personally like Savage,but I have a couple Remy's too.
    If you get a Savage with a synthetic stock,get one with the Accustock,the plain factory synthetic is junk and would need to be replaced anyway.

    I have an older right-hand Savage 110 in .270 cal. and am very pleased with it. The tupperware stock is not that stiff, but, i have free-floated the bbl. away from the stock and it works great! The ability to change bbls. is a HUGE plus over Remington. IMO-of course not everyone likes to tinker with them.
    I only have one Remington model 12 pump .22. so I cannot speak for them but I see posts saying to avoid certain Rem. models.
    They are ALL fun to start with! I just personally like the idea of being ABLE to switch calibers to almost any cartridge that is available. So I chose Savage. (it doesn't hurt their reputation that the Olympic shooters are using them either! ;)- )

    I think in general terms the Remington is slightly better in fit, finish, and overall quality (model 700). I think the Savage is slightly better in out of the box accuracy. But the differences are very small and either would be a good rifle. There are also exceptions in both cases. :)

    I own both Remingtons and a older Savage 110,either brand you choose should make a good rifle.

    I own a rem 700 in 30-06 and am very happy with it. I'm thinking about getting a 270 also have you looked at the ruger m77?
