    I went to my local gun shop the other day intended to buy the savage M11 FHNS but i got distracted and somewhat interested in what the gun shop owner offered instead of that.He offered me a remington 770 .308 cal and it came with a scope and about $100 bucks less.My question is should i go with that or stick with the Savage?

    I would stick with the Savage. I looked at both via the Internet and didn't care for the Remington 770. Here's why... The opening in the receiver (where a round would be loaded) is too closed off. I can see somebody fumbling with trying to get a round in through the side or unloading a round; without having to rack the bolt back to throw the round out. Also loading a round into the magazine to top it off from the side looks to be hard to do. Would have to drop the magazine to top it off. Didn't care for the molded in rear squared off trigger guard. It looks bulky below the receiver. I didn't care for the molded in sling studs. The website didn't mention anything about the trigger, I don't think it is Remington's new trigger system. It is also two pounds heavier than the Savage. I didn't get a chance to handle one in person, but due to the aforementioned observations I would stick with the Savage. Try to get the 2009 Savage 11FHNS. It has the new Accustock feature plus the Accutrigger. I have a Savage 110 GXP3 (pre Accutrigger) in .270 Winchester; it is well made and very accurate bolt action rifle. I'll probably get razed by the Remington aficionados :-)
