    I'd like to get a .17 caliber bolt action rifle to use just for target shooting, and I've kind of got it narrowed down to the Anschutz and the Savage. Based on bunch of stuff I've read, it seems that these two might be a good choice if my primary desire would be to get an accurate rifle at a reasonable cost. I'm sure there are more expensive rifles with far better accuracy but I've got to draw the cost line somewhere. Anyone care to give their experiences or opinions to help me make a decision?

    money,money, money....the Savage is probably just as accurate....prestige....and you got the money Anschutz....I would buy the Savage, save the extra money for good optics and probably have money left over.....I would rather have a Timex and save money for beer than have a Rolex and show off....decisions, decisions unless you got the cash to #iss off. My Savage will shoot cloverleaf groups at 100 yards with Nikon optics, for a whole lot more cash your Anschutz will do the same....
