I would go with Remington but I have a good buddy who would go with Savage.

The SPS Remington is very very very very cheap grade. I would stay far away from them if I were you. Trust me; I know. If you go with Remington, you'd better stick with the upper end rifles they make.

Otherwise, today I would pick a Marlin over a Remington...and an upper end Savage over them.

Best sub $400 gun I've ever shot though is a Marlin X7. Have shot one in 30.06, .243, and .308. All three of them were shooting under half inch groups at 100 with cheap optics and factory loads. I put a better scope on the .308 one and hand loads, and got it down to .250 groups at 100. This is with a non free floated barrel...straight out of the box.

At some point in your life you have to relize just how old you are.

I have a NIB Remington 700 XCR on the rack in 25/06, they shoot lights out. It would make for a fine rifle. Between lower end Remmy and Savage 16 in SS I too would pick the Savage. I have sold many Predators and all with superb accuracy, the kind of talk I used to hear about Remingtons of older vintage.

Savage Arms has come further than any other firearms company making what shooters want.

The Marlin is a Remington now-sort of a remlin or more like a gremlin if it is like the remlin 22 mag I just bought.
We were soldiers once, and young.
