I'm partial to Savage. I've got a 10 FP in .308 with a 24" heavy barrel and the accu-trigger. I haven't tried their accu-stock, but the accu-trigger is nice. My original stock was awful and had to be replaced, but after that I've done little tweaking and it's been very accurate out of the box.

I'd first look for a used one that someone already tacti-cooled all up.

Howa are very good guns....That being said, I bought a Savage 11 because, if/when I have money, I can upgrade it into something really special, by my self

The SBS is a good model to start with. At some point you may want to invest in a stock with less flex but the SBS will outshoot most people right out of the box.

Savage 10 is the way I would go.
forgo the tacti-kool crap. put a good scope and ring combination on it.
After you get your loads dialed in for what the rifle likes, then consider upgrades.

I've got a Howa 1500 and it shoots very well out to the 300 yards I've shot it. Ive also shot the 700 varmint in 22-250 and it was quite the tack driver at around 150 yards. I like my Howa better then the 700 I shot though.
