The bottom line is that there are many different rifles, Savage, Rem, Tikka, that will give you the sub MOA accuracy you need given the right load. Just look at them and buy the one you like.

RE: 1100 vs 1187

The newer 1100 is called the 1100 G3. It is very much like an 11-87. In fact you can mount some 11-87 barrels on the 1100 G3, but you cannot mount old 1100 barrels on the G3. Both are good gun.
