I've owned and shot just about every domestic rifle, just bought my 1st Savage over the holidays. I love it. the Accutrigger makes the rifle. I used to be an avowed ruger fan, but with the Savage running 1/2 the price; No Contest.

Bought my first Savage rifle in December. I have not had the chance to really get some shooting time with the rifle but I have shot it a few times off my back deck. I could not resist to see how that accu-trigger felt. If the gun shoots as good as the trigger felt I will be completely satisfied.

i own a savage model 110L chambered in .270 it is a great gun. all savages are great guns. i like them over all the other gun makers out there. last summer, we were shooting 1/3 in. groups with it. when it was brand new, we shot 1/2in. groups at 100 yds

Don't think they are that great,I shot this lousy 5-shot group @100yds with one of their muzzleloaders. Not even going to talk about how well the 223 10 fp shoots @ 300 yds.

I bought my Savage, in 300 Win Mag, from a pawn shop in Englewood, CO for about $200. I was a little skeptical but it has amazed me how accurate it is at long distances. For me, at 200 yds it consistently creates groups of 2-3 in. The best measure is that it keeps my freezer full.

I do have a slight problem with the factory installed Simmons 3-9X40 scope. It seems to get knocked off target after I travel with it. It has me looking at putting on a scope that will cost more than the gun itself!

Keep this very basic principle in mind, average equipment in skilled hands will always beat great equipment in average hands.
