    When I was purchasing mine, the choice was between Remington and Savage. I decided to go with the Reminton because of the availability at the time and have no regrets (big game blood count since I purchased mine; 5. at various ranges). I researched both and would have gone either way. The one thing I will say about Savage is if they decide to go that route, ensure to get the accu-trigger.

      I was in the market last year for a new rifle to replace my wood/blue Ruger M77 in 300 win. I'm a lefty and I wanted stainless/composite with tang safety. I found two options ~ Browning and Savage. I own the Browning in stainless stalker .375 and love it and just about bought another browning in 300 win mag ~ however it came with the BOSS system, which I despise. I found a Savage .325 WSM at Mt. View Sports. After looking at the ballistics of the .325 and learning more about the accu-trigger ~ I pulled the trigger.

      I love the rifle and will buy a Savage without hesitation. My only complaint is magazine only hold 2 WSM.

        I would personally go with a tikka, but that is just me. Any rifle you buy will probably work though!

          I have to agree with northway, all of them are great companies and you should not have any issues with any rifle they produce. With that said the Savage and Tikka seem to run a little cheaper in price and not give up anything in quality.

            All depend what 700 he gets as well they have the base model 700 SPS in sportsman for 479.00 something like that. I don't know if you priced the new savages latley but holly %@&! they are pushing the 500 dollar mark these days. I know you can get the Savage Edge and the Stevens for alot less. The tikka's are in the mid 550's last time I looked. But anymore when I look at new gun prices I cringe and shake my head and go buy me a 5 dollar cup of coffee from Starbucks LOL.

              That's because you spent all your $$ on that polaris snowmachine with a melted clutch! Better cut back on STARBUCKS!

                  All 4 plus many others would work fine - but it should be his decision based on feel and what he likes in appearance and function needs.
                  Take him to a gun shop and hopefully play with all 4 and then tell him to close his eyes and pick one??? Not trying to be smart but its pretty hard to find 2 people that agree on all the same likes and dislikes and all 4 are good guns... For price and function the Savage line is pretty hard to beat based on simplicity and value....

                          Is that 800 for gun and scope or just gun? I own several of all of those except the t3. I love them all and they all shoot sub moa. The only difference I have noticed was the rem 700 have better resale if you decide to sell and take a little work to shrink the groups down. Savage shoot great from the box not as much resale value and ugly barrel nut. All of these I overlook when I see less than 1/4 5 shot group at 100 yards. I like the 16/116 model lines myself. Ruger is hit and miss for accuracy. My 22-250 is amazing where I had a 7pm from them and it would not shoot groups for the life of me. Have him feel a few and if possible shoot them to get the feel of recoil from each. They are all a little bit different in stock design so felt recoil changes

                            I would buy the cheapest of any of the rifles mentioned and turn the savings to optics dont go cheap on optics. Most people cant shoot as good as the rifle they purchase.

                              With the list mentioned, the Tikka is the hands down out of the box MOA shooter. However, it is a light rifle, 6#6oz. (IIRC) it has a hard rubber recoil pad. If he not accustomed to some recoil, it could be a problem. Limbsaver makes a great screw on pad but will lengthen the LOP about 3/16". Good luck.
