If you are looking at short actions in the Savages', you need to look at the ones with two digit numbers. In your case the Model 16 is a short action stainless steel.

Something tells me that accuracy wise they'll be about the same. The Winchester would be a finer rifle from a fit and finish perspective and likely hold it's value better.

In my opinion, it's an apples an oranges comparison. The cost difference on a percent basis is quite large.

I have both. I like both, but the Winny is just a nicer gun. The action is way more smooth. Accuracy is good on both. The winny will cost more but i am considering another one as well.

I know the Savage line now has an outstanding reputation for accuracy and trigger pull, but I recently handled both the Savage and new Winchester Model 70. I was very impressed with the 70s outstanding finish and wood to metal finish , flawless checkering and buttery smooth action. The magazine reviews have been very favorable. I want one in a .308 (short action), but it will be a while. Locally they had the 70 on sale for about 699.00 as I recall.
