There's always better (in to the $1000.00's), how better do you want to go? Savage is a solid platform. Look at their BV line too. Go to rimfirecentral.com and read.

Savage 93's ROCK!!!!! I have had mine for 9-10 years. I was expensive because they just came out (if I remember right), a lot more than they are now. You can find higher priced rifles but your going to have to spend way more to get anything better. Just my .02

+1 on the CZ. I have the 455 Varmint with the ability to change out the barrels. Waiting to shoot out the factory barrel so I can install a Lilja.
