Stainless synthetic stock. Looking at the 116 Savage, or A Bolt without Boss. .270 caliber. Money is about the same $550 ish either way.

Opinions? I own a couple Savage and really like them, but never owned a Browning.

I may talk myself out of both before I decide and just save the money.

Never shot a Savage but absolutely love brownings.

You can find brand new Browning A Bolts for the $500 range.
Looked at a Composite Stalker in 7mm mag the other day for $525 plus tax.

Just thought I would let ya know that.

A Bolt hands down. Shoot one and it will sell itself.

Browning. Browning. Browning.

Accuracy is almost a given these days with all major brands capable of MOA. I find the Browning much nicer to hold and look at, unless you go to the very top of the line wood-stocked Savages. (My A Bolt is wood and I'd go there rather than Synthetic.)

I have the BOSS and really like it. It works as advertised! Get the CR (Conventional Recoil) version without the holes and it won't be ear-splitting loud.

My A Bolt shoots good always has. Fired a friends A bolt with the Boss system, it's way to loud even for just a few shots a year with no ear protection.

when shopping for the boy's 7mm08, we looked at the browning and the savage. the savage was better built, the bolt was smoother, wood-to-metal fit was better and it was $200 less. he has been shooting that savage for 12+ years and wouldn't take 3 brownings for it.
