anyone other than Savage make a bolt action .223 with a 1/7 or 1/8 twist rate? Not saying that Savage is bad just want to know my options.

I am thinking the Tikka Varmint .223 I looked at had 1 in 8" right on the barrel , I'll have to look up the specs to make sure.
Edit to add: yeah the Tikka T3 Varmint is listed at 1 in 8".

But the Savage 12 Series Varmint is offered in 1/7 twist. :D

Btw, I love my 1/9 Savage;

Tikka T3 Lite and Hunter are 8" also. They are outstanding.
