Savage. I love my ML-II, and would love to have a centerfire rifle in .308Win or .338WM to match it. Some complain about it, but I love the accutrigger. I have a Rem700 .270Win that is around 20ish years old that I love, but the new Remingtons, Marlins, and other Freedom Group guns are hit or miss on QC, and way short on pride in craftsmanship.

I hate to say it, but another "bargain gun" to look at that is ugly but getting rave reviews due to engineering is the Ruger American Rifle.

I sighted in a buddy's new 700 yesterday with Nikon glass, the very best it will do is 1.5 @ 100. My Savage will clover leaf all day long. I don't think Remington is what it used to be. I'd pick the Savage hands down...

I am a remington fan but the sps is the 870 express version of the 700. Of course, you don't mention which savage stainless you are looking at so its hard to say whether the savage you are looking at is better than the remington or not. The axis is a savage but I would not say its better than the remington.

If you want a good remington get a 5R or a Sendero. Honestly I'd take either of those over a savage.

I agree the axis is junk. I already have a model 10 in 22-250, the model 16 is my next beast. The model 14 is next on my list
