    Savage fan here. I LOVE mine. Savage 110 in 30-06. Incredibly accurate out of the box and with the money you save, you can get some sweet glass.

    Arn't LTR's only supposed to be for law enforcement? It's light, but doesn't seem that light for a 20" barrel gun, and i like the high velocity of a 26" barrel on the stealth. Being floated and fluted is nice tho

    Why in Gods name would you replace an M70 Stealth with either of those two rifles? That's like saying, I'm selling my 911 TT and replacing it with a C5 Vette, or even worse a Supra.
     
  9. Either gun would be nice, but I'm a fan of the 700s.

    the difference between a 26" and 20" barrel might be 180fps at the most.

    Well I pic the LTR and :mamoru: because every time someone asks about what rifle they should get I always say LTR cause I have one.

    My LTR isn't too heavy to carry. I deer hunt with it. Yeah it gets a little heavy at times, but it makes for stable shots, and it's a tac-driver. I shot two deer this year, 1 at 400, the other at 30 in brush. Yeah, you lose a little bit of velocity, but you also lose like 1.5 lbs between the Rem 700P and the 700 LTR.

    Giving it to a sibling, i'll still get to use it - so it's not like i'm selling it and using the money to buy one of these guns. It's not an extraordinary gun either tho - do you like it cuz it's rare/not made anymore?
    Don't get me wrong tho, still my favorite gun i've had to date

    I have both a Savage 110 and a Remington 700P. The Savage is much more accurate out of the box.

    That has been my experience too, although I only own a Savage (10FCP HS Precision Stock), but having shot a couple of stock 700P.

    The Savage has a couple of features that I think give it the edge in "out of the box" accuracy. If you want something you can just throw some glass on and start drilling holes I think Savage is the way to go. This was even more clearcut before Remington came up with their version of the Accutrigger.

    That being said the 700P is a great rifle too, and probably has better abosulte accuracy "potential" if you're willing to have a smith do some basic action work/squaring. Not to mention the huge aftermarket support.

    im not looking to do any smithing - I've gone that route before and spent a lot of money to get it a lil more accurate and comfortable.
