I recently got a Savage Predator Max in .223, it was very affordable. I was amazed at the out of the box accuracy and the crispness of the trigger. Go with a Savage with the accustock and accutrigger and you will not be disappointed.
I have had several Remington 700’s and they seem to all have a 9 pound lawyer installed on the trigger. You can adjust it, but not as well as the Savage IMO.
Modern R700s have the new Xmarkpro trigger which is adjustable by the user down to about 3 pounds. Multiple reviewers have said it is as if it can with a trigger job from the factory.
This is because Savage first shipped their similar Accutrigger, of course, and Remington had to compete or lose out in sales.
I have a Savage target rifle in .308 caliber. I love it. Without being a great shot I can nail a target at 400 yards without difficulty. (I have a good variable scope which cost a bundle.) I love Savages trigger. The downdside being the weight of the gun. The gun assumes one will use a bipod or other support.
At home I have a Savage in 22-250; bull barrel, composite stock; scope set to 500yds. Killer.
