    What type of accuracy could I expect from a Savage Rifle?

    I'd expect about an inch at a hundred yards. Perhaps a lot better if you find the right load.

      MOA with the ammo it likes, but you have to find out what kind of ammo that is. I had a Model 11 that drove me crazy for a while, but now it's a tack driver.

          I have had a few Savage rifles in my lifetime and accuracy wasn't a concern when buying one, because I never saw a Savage that didn't shoot very well.

            From what I have heard, they are consistently very accurate

              If you stay away from their entry level rifle, the Axis, I think you can expect good accuracy. Rifles can vary some within a model line but that's to be expected. Remember, you get what you pay for and entry level rifles most likely will not perform up to the level of Savage's mid and upper range models.

                Every Savage I have had experience with has been exceptionally accurate, right out of the box. Tinkering to find the right load for the rifle will sometimes provide amazing results.

                  what sarge said, even my old 1949 model 99 is a great hunting rifle with good accuracy. And savages have ever gotten better, I love to buy savages and do as often as I can.

                    If you find the right load and are proficient with the rifle then a savage offers excellent accuracy when paired with quality optics.
