WARNING!!! All Savages are not created equal. After purchasing my Kimber and seeing first-hand how well they shoot, I decided to purchase a Savage Mark II-TR for comparison. I went to the range the other day and got a chance to compare them. First, the Kimber trigger is better than the trigger on the savage MKII, even with the MKII trigger set at it's lightest setting. Second, the Kimber has weight and is easier to hold on target than the Savage. Third, so far, the Savage does not like most of the bullets that the Kimber likes but I have to do more testing in this area to give a thumbs up to either one. Fourth, when shooting bullets that the Kimber likes, it shoots slightly smaller groups than the Savage does using bullets that the Savage likes. This was at 50 yards from the lead sled for both guns. Like I stated earlier, I still have to do more testing to find the "best" load for each rifle before I can give a thumbs-up to either one. As it stands right now, I would shoot the Kimber at 100 yards in a match before I would shoot the Savage at 100 yards in a match but that may change after more bullet testing. From what I have already seen, the Kimber will shoot more 10's and X's at 100 yards than the Savage will but BOTH RIFLES are extremely accurate with the Kimber just barely, barely edging out Savage in the accuracy department. It will probably be this Spring before I complete my comparison of the two rifles.
