While it might not be as pretty as the Browning, the trigger is better on the Savage than the A-bolt. And you could get a nicer scope with the money you saved. Or, you could get the X-bolt like you've been asking about, and have a great trigger as well as a good looking gunRobert A. Langager said:I think the Savage is a better value. It may not be as pretty as the Browning, but it will out shoot it and the triggers are great. The money you save on the Savage vs. the Browning could be used to get even better glass for it.
Just my $0.02.
I think you mean "safety" not "trigger".usmarine0352 said:.
Always spend more on your scope then your rifle.
Almost all of the big name rifles will work well.
Form follows function, if you want the looks, get the Browning. If you want the basics, get a Savage, however, Savage is known for having out of the box accurate rifles and great triggers.
Personally, I like Winchesters and Rugers because they have 3 position triggers.
