It just not fair! Making all those hand built, custom actions compete against a Savage.

Remington is a beauty with the cost of an arm or a leg, or may be a few other rifles. ;)

The Sac Valley LR COF is perfect for a savage. No rapid fire (maybe a couple on the timed exposures), square, well groomed range, etc. A high mag SFP Nightforce is the preferred optic as well. That is not the case for most other tactical matches. And the reason you never see savage at the top there. I like my savages for their accuracy and to tinker with, but they are not my first choice for anything where reliability is concerned, nor where theres anything riding on the rifles performance.

Good job Sam.

What is unreliable? From what I've heard they used to have a problem with the extractor but have recently fixed it.

Say hi to Sam for me if you see him again:) Tell him one of his old IPSC/IDPA buddies from Modesto says hello.

A savage won!?! Awesome. How many matches up there have been won with Savages, vs how many won with 700's or their clones? Not tryin to talk smack, just asking.

This is relevant to my recent gun shopping escapades.

Puts a bit of spin on the seemingly common internet notion that Savages are accurate out of the box, but won't keep up in a competitive environment.

No matter what the sport, guys who pay top dollar for their gear will always find a way to hate on the guys who pay bottom dollar.

I have met some Remington lovers in my time, but I don't think I have ever actully met anyone who "hated" Savage. Not any real shooters anyway.

A good shooter can shoot with almost anything.

I primarly buy Savage rifles. I can buy high end if I want, but why? All my Savage rifles group better than all my friends rifles of other makes. Ya, I do reload, and I'm sure that helps. For me Savage all the way baby!! Oh, on a side note, my Savage 30.06 even killed a deer yesterday! I'll never change

My first shotgun was a Savage, 18" pump. I loved that thing. Fell off a cliff into Ontario Lake. I could see the shotgun sticking up out of the water. By the time I got down the cliff, the lake claimed it....gone forever.

Are remingtons really that much more? From what I see in the for sale forums and gun shops they are about the same.

No, they really aren't much more at all.

http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/manufacturers_id/3/products_id/41046

and well worth the difference in price for the added customization potential.

I've been researching the two and i keep reading that the main pro for savage is that they are cheaper than remingtons but from what I've seen they're about the same.

edit: I was looking at the sps at a shop today, was $600, very tempting.
