What is "tactical" style for you?

Rem700P..... is being used "tactically" thruout the nation's PDs.

You can get a 700 action and put a AICS stock....

Or you can build yourself a M24 like.... 700 action + HS stock M24 stock http://www.hsprecision.com/pst03a.htm

Or just get a rifle from HS: http://www.hsprecision.com/new_str.htm

Bell and Carlson makes a nice one as well.

Bell and Carlson makes a decent one called the Medalist. It works pretty well. But at this point, its only made for the older ones without the center feed mag. McMillan and HS precision make stocks for the new ones, as well as the old ones.

If you want a remmy tactical, just get a 700 sps varmint and put it in a HS precision stock from a 700p. You can find them for a couple hundred used. It serves as a better base upon which to build than the savage. This from a guy that has three savages.

Wow, not sure if I agree with that. The Savage is one of the most modular rifles around. The Remi definitely has many aftermarket parts available for it and many great rifles have been built on it, but the Savage has many options. I used a few of my Savages to build Lefty Benchrest Rifles, they wouldn't compete with my Kelbly Panda but can shoot pretty well. You can build great shooting rifle from either.

If you expended the same amount of effort and used the same quality parts, the remington will shoot groups just like pictured above.
The main difference between rem and savage is that the rem has a lot more aftermarket support because remington is the "standard" that everything else is compared to.

Point Being, Both Actions can be built into great shooters. Savage just makes it easy for non-gunsmiths/non-Techie shooters to change and modify calibers, Trigger Pull, blah blah..... Not saying one is better then the other, just that the Savage still is a good base action to start with. Good luck with either action/Rifle you start with, post some pics when your done with mods:D

It really depends on what type of shooting you want to do with it. You can turn it into a nice bench rig or f class rifle. Its great being able to change barrels on your own, sure. But with a savage, if you want an AICS? Too bad. You want a reliable dbm with 10 round mags? Too bad. You want a mak tube kit? Too bad. You want a sturdy, reliable ejection system? Too bad. I could go on.

I was working on a guys 12fv last night that had feeding/extraction issues. His accutrigger was malfunctioning too. My own 10fp and 12fv suffer from extraction problems that I've had to remedy with homemade parts. It took many thousand rounds through these savages before I started realizing their limitations as parts began to fail.

Like I said, if you want a rifle you can single feed from a bench, or an f class rifle, they're great. Set it up in 6.5-284 and burn barrels like they're going out of style. Spin on a new one in your garage and you're done. But for putting together a custom tac rifle, the savage is not the action to choose.

The Remmy is popular for only one reason, the round receiver chucks up nicely in the lathe.

It is no more inherently accurate than any other top end factory rifle, and is most often beaten in competition by custom receivers....that are loosely based on the Remmy action, because they too chuck up easy in a lathe.

It's not for any little reason, why gun hack after gun hack write their stories exclaiming that Savage is the most accurate out-of-the-box rifle they have ever fired. Our own California Marine, COL Boddington, admitted his best ever group in his shooting life came from a Savage in .22-250. That, from a guy that can afford practically any rifle he desires.

inda_babe, you will not be disappointed in the Savage. Anything custom, or semi-custom you want, is available from Sharp Shooter Supply. Stocks, triggers, barrels, action work etc, all there.

No, its not. I tried to have Fred make me a dbm system and he didn't even reply to my emails. I finally called and he said he wasn't interested. Thats just the start.

I already listed what is not available yet from anyone, custom or otherwise. If you want any of those things I mentioned, don't start with the savage.

I had and loved a pair of Savages. I had to move to Remington cause I wanted a DBM system. The AICS fit the bill for stock and DBM so I moved and haven't looked back. Once you move to a different platform you begin to see the limitations of the Savage. I'm not the best shooter in the world, I need to work on a few areas like off hand shooting. I can see the limitations in my type of shooting. If I was shooting f-class it would be a different story.

I'm using the McMillan A-5.

Any stock that McMillan can inlet for the Remington 700 action, they can inlet for the Savage 10/110 action.

Sure didn't want to lead this thread into a "Mine is Better Then Yours" (sorry to the OP), but my point was you can build great rifles on either platform. I haven't had issues with extraction on any of my Savage Actions that I have built on, obviously YMMV.

To the OP, as you can see above (ocabj's post), the A5 Stock is a nice option.
