Stevens 200 Accuracy
The 308 is not as accurate as the 223 for some reason. The 308 leaves the factory if it can shoot 3 inch groups at 100 yards. The 223 will shoot sub-MOA at 100 yards per several gun forums that I have read. Savage say's 69 grain bullets are best with this gun since it has a 1 in 9 twist rate! If you decide to get a 308, call Savage to see which grain bullet they reccomend for best accuracy. It all depends on what you are going to do with the rifle - I use mine for target shooting as I don't hunt. I figure if I can shoot under 1 inch at 200 yards, then this can be a serious survival/personal defense weapon.
