    :bigthumb: Great shotgun. I'll get one sooner or later. Very big aftermarket for that one. Most "upgrades" are Ricer though. :o

    long rifle eh? I would suggest a Remington 700 if you have the money for it. Savage also has very nice rifles for the money from what I here.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't the newer Savage's w/ the Accutrigger (110's?) outshooting the 700's right out of the box?

    That's a broad statement, every rifle is different :dunno:

    Well then average. It was that the Savage's consistently outshot the 700's. Of course, there's variations in each.

    I wouldnt be suprised if they did out shoot alot of 700s since the triggers are significantly better, the real downside to savages though is a weak aftermarket as compared to the 700. Personally I'd like to pick up either rifle this summer if I can find a LH short action that's cheap enough :hs:

    Sorry for my stupidity, but what is the difference of long action and short action. Recently I have been looking at the Remington 700 for my next rifle and I kept seeing both listed.

    Well to put it simply, its based on cartridge size. a .223, 243, .308, etc. will be on a short action; .270, 30-06, etc. will be based on long actions. There are also magnum length actions in some cases, all depends on the manufacturer. Short actions = shorter bolt travel, a little less weight, stiffer, etc.
