I just got back from the range a couple of hours ago with a new gun. It is a Savage 11VT in .223 and boy did Savage do it again with this one. It has the accu trigger, bull barrel, 1:9 twist, 4x12x40 Bushnell scope, detachable 5 round mag, and double studs up front for a sling and bipod at a cost of $499. The scope is a lower end Bushnell but will work fine here in east TN. I shot outside, at 100 yards, off bags, and used 55 grain hornady v max with group size less than 1/2 inch which I will take all day long with anything straight out the box with factory ammo. The only thing about this model is it only comes in .223 and .308. And it is a Dicks Sporting Goods, i had to swallow my pride on this one cause i dont like the place but, exclusive. So if anyone looking for a good rifle, especially if on a budget, I would take a good look at this one.
