Savage Model 10 Tactical vs Remington SPS Tactical

Has anyone seen a review comparing these two fine rifles? I know the question has been brought up a 1000 times. I have not actually seen the lower end Remington SPS Tactical with 20" barrel in 308 compared to the Model 10FP Savage Tactical 20" barrel in 308 has anyone else? But have bull barrels. I am curious how they would stack up? I did see a new Savage in bull barrel with 24" tube besdie the Remmy yesterday. The price difference was only $10 so the Savage is not a lot cheaper any more.
Thanks for any input

I've read nothing but good things about both. Having had both myself, my Savage 10 was more accurate than my SPS Tactical. They were .223 rem.

Today, I have a Savage 10 HS Precision and a Rem XCR Compact Tactical. Both are .308. Both are good shooters. My Rem has produced sub 1/2" groups, while my Save hasn't, yet....

Savage 10

+1 on the Savage 10. Mine shoots sub-MOA at 300m with the original stock and Millett glass. Way less initial money.

I never had a 10FP in 308, but I did have a 12FVSS in 308. My "cheap" SPS Tactical will shoot circles around what my Savage would do. I scrapped the Hogue and got a Manners T4, and I picked up a Leupold for her yesterday. My SPS is the best shooting (and almost most accurate, losing just slightly to my McGowen barrelled Savage 30-06) rifle I own.

It was raining the day that I shot the85 yard groups, and that is all the distance I could get and still manage a dry firing line.

I've owned both in 308, the Savage was the hands down winner.
