Savage ,Marlin x7 its gonna be a tough road for this Ruger.Its gonna have a hard time shooting with those rifles.Savages arent pretty but ive had Sakos,Weatherbies,Kimbers,and all my Savages shoot better. Ive never had one that doesnt shoot sub moa and i dont handload.And the best part about a Savage if it dont shoot send it back no question it will come back a tack driver.Good luck Ruger but this is a tough market.

Default I didn't know Savage would rework one

I always thought that it was a crap shoot litterly when you buy a rifle. Some shoot better than others made on the same day on the same assembly line. I didn't realize they would tweek it if it didn't shoot to your satisfaction. That is a class act by Savage....

I actually handled one of these a week or so ago and it seemed fairly well made, I liked it.

[QUOTE=Karl.Luhr;68320

I think that Ruger will give competition at a lower price point with this rifle. My Son is buying one of the new M77 Hawkeyes that will cost around 700.xx and I beleave these are going to be sold at approx 500.xx.

Suggested retail is $449.00 most places around here if you can find one are $350 or less

Default I am very happy that Ruger has a winner with it.....

I really am happy that the market has fallen in love with it. The more shooters/hunters we have the better. I shot a set of Marlins XL7s last fall that I was impressed with, they also were 300.xx street price. If Ruger has built a nice rifle for 350.xx street price that opens the door to alot of new shooters/hunters. I always recommend a bolt action rifle with a decent scope for any new shooter/hunter. The industry has found a way to keep the price down without offering junk. The fact the it is made here in the USA is even better. Now if Remington could figure out what Marlin and Ruger are doing and replace the 710/770 series they too could have a winner.
