I have heard this heard this and heard this Savage rifles shoot under MOA out of the box with factory ammo. I have not seen this proven as I have helped sight in many many rifles and have found that they are all about the same in terms of accuracy. I have had grown men yell at me because their rifle would not produce one holers. I use a fairly good rifle rest and using it can useally get pretty good groups. I have had three one holers in my life one with my 220Swift and 2 with my 300WM. I do not call these one hole rifles they are just a little better than MOA on avarage. For me a one holer is not a touching cloverleaf. I have not found the accuracy with the Nef's that I imagine that they are capable of. My Nef 17HMR deing the exception., but then it is rimfire and not certerfire.The strange part is with the 220Swift the one hole group was with a differant powder loaded at over 4000fps with a 50gr Speer spirepoint bullet.

Jason is mighty proud of his Ruger Mark II All Weather 7mm mag but I wouldn't trade my T/C Encore .270 for anything. I've sure grown mighty fond of it. :D It hasn't let me down yet and does everything I've ever asked it to and done it well.

I have always been partial to the riflemans rifle Winchester. Of course they went out of business but have since returned with a rather hefty pricetag. If pride is in accuracy then most all rifles can be worked on in that respect. If pride is in the beauty of a certain rifle be prepared to pay for it. A great looking rifle may or may not fit right and in order to get accuracy and beauty that piece of stock and steel must fit the shooter. Although I have not ad the privilige of shooting one, the savage accutrigger seems to be a great selling point for them. The facts be known a real good trigger can solve many shooting problems.

Paul, the Winchester sure has taken a lot of game that's for sure. Another really overlooked rifle, actually a carbine, was the original Ruger .44 mag semi auto. I owned one and took several deer with it, never having to fire more than one shot. It was very accurate, light weight, manueverable, and rugged. Of course it's range was limited but a better brush gun never was in my opinion.

I will agree that rifle is a good one just not in PA. PA does not allow any autoloading rifle or pistol to hunt with. This does not apply to shotguns. I do not know about the shotgun only zones whether the semi auto can be used there or not. I only own one semi auto and it is a pistol that was my father-in-laws. It is a walther PPk in 22 rimfire and I have yet to shoot it. Someday when I put on my James Bond gear I'll get it out and blast a few out of it.

ok with the purchase of the Ruger kv 223 M77 mark II
I have to say ruger...
My browning is one sweet shooting rifle.
but I now own 2 rugers in the M77 Mark II
and a Ruger 10/22.

I guess with what is in my gun safe I'd have to say if I have 3 of them and 1 browning.... then I must believe it to be Ruger :)
