For that amount of money I believe that you can still find a 700 ADL, which is substantially better that the two mentioned.

Last year I bought a rem 700 @ package deal for $407.To be honest with you I didn't like the scope & replaced it.
But to answer your question I would pick the savage over the rem 770

By all means pick the Savage 111 over the Remington 770! If I was you I'd shy away from the combo and put a better scope on it. You can get a Nikon Prostaff 3x-9x-40mm for around 150-160$. The combo deals ain't such great deals when you consider they put the cheapest scope on them as they can.

Definitely the Savage, maybe even over the Rem 700ADL. Also, Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 for 99.95 at Natchez Shooters Supply.

I would go with the Savage, just an all around better rifle.

Not even a contest, go with the Savage 111. Odd how certain rifles are mentioned in threads where the OP never even asked about them, methinks some posters have problems with reading comprehension
