I have one with Laminated Thumbhole stock. Not sure about the FV model. I'm pretty sure it's the same rifle but in different stock. I tried different brand of ammo and the rifle exhibited good accuracy.Posted Image

Yep, their stock guns are only beating some of the best custom rifles in the world at the world championships in F class and dominating every shooting competition that has a production rifle class.

I just bought a ruger 7717 in stainless And love it. A real tack driver. I do like the 22 mag better for what I am doing, So I rebarreled it to 22 mag. with a Green Mountain fluted 22". It shoots a .30 3 shot hole @ 100 yds. But dont hesitate on Savage the shoot great!

I really like them. I have a 204, 17, and 270 WSM all by Savage. The accutrigger is a great stock trigger that is adjustable. I feel they are all really accurate out of the box rifles.

Absolutely ! A Savage right out of the box is as accurate as they come- add the realistic price and they are phenominal !

I don't think you can go wrong with a Savage. I have the Predator in .223 and it was a shooter right out of the box.

Go for it. Savage makes a great shooting rifle. One of the best for out of the box accuracy. I have a 204 varmit and it shoots great. IF the one you are looking at has a scope it will not be a real high quality scope. That would be the only negetive thing I could say about it. But any of the manufactures that have a rifle/scope package is the same as far as not having a high quality scope.

I own a Savage in 17 HMR and it is a real shooter. I've put thousands of rounds through it with no problems. It is lightweight and accurate. My brother got his at the same time I did. I was so impressed I purchased a 12FVSS Savage in 223 shortly after that and love that gun also.I can consistently outshoot guys that have spent much more than I did on their 17 HMRs. Don't let the price tag fool you, they make good rifles.

So from all of your input, then its a good $249.99 + DROS and Tax well spent. Oh and no Optics.

A new Savage is money well spent. Just ask the folks who keep winning national and international matches with bone stock model 12's

I have a predator in 22-250. It loves every kind of ammo I throw at it. About the best bang for buck going.
