    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    out to 150 yds, make mine a .44 mag lever gun...

    444 Marlin? what a retro COOL factor

    my dad has taken 2 with .44 mag revolvers 1 at 10 yards in heavy brush and one at 75 yards across an open field (both open sights)

    I was amazed by the repeatable accuracy of my Savage 12FLV (lefty, .223). Offered in a variety of calibers, it also comes with AccuTrigger, an innovation by Savage that significantly improves the trigger feel.

    Currently, I have a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .243. Comparing the two, I would be hard pressed to say that one has anything over the other. Both are exceptionally accurate, well made. The stock AccuTrigger on the Savage was stellar. While, on the Rem 700, I have since installed a Jewell HVR trigger, which is simply everything folks have said about Jewell.

    I've been able to keep 4-5 bullets within a 2" circle at 300yds some of the time, 1.5" at 200yds, and 1" at 100yds. I am also a fairly flailing marksman, all things considered. In the hands of someone who is a decent shot, it's almost a certainty each of these rifles could easily cut that in half.

    The Remington 700, of course, has a lot of after-market support, in terms of gunsmithing work, accessories for the scope, bolt or other aspects.

    Either could be an excellent choice.

    yeah, your probably right. Just an old myth held over from the 60's
