Well all three 270 WM's of mine will shoot 1" groups all day at 100 yds and better with a superior rest. I give the Savage trigger a nod. However, with top weatherby's at near $1400.00 it's not for everyone. Purchase what you can afford and put as much towards a nice scope as you can. If you can tell I'm not a big Savage fan allthough I haven't purchased any of their more modern models. I'd still put my money in a really nice used Remington mountain rifle before I'd buy a new Savage, just my preference.
