The tikka 's action is butter smooth, but the trigger break on the savage is so clean and crisp. They are both excellent beautifully crafted rifles and you really can't go wrong with either one. I have a Rem.700BDL .308, and a wetherby vanguard .300wbymag, my wife has the tikka t3 .308 and my brother has a savage. It all depends on what you prefer.

The tikka has the synthetic frame and you can get them with heavy floated barrels. you may want to glass bed either rifle. It Greatly improves accuracy. My brother loves his savage. Especially after I glass bedded it for him. My wife loves her tikka. But I'm a wetherby guy I'm not bias either way. They are both excellent platforms and you can't really go wrong with either one.

"Glass bed" what does this mean?

That's a really nice one! Is hog hunter a full size or the size of a carbine?
I have never owned a Carbine, but if you mean shorter overall than a full size, YES.

In any rifle there is play between the stock, barrel, and action. Glass bedding takes a glass resin and fills in the voids of the so there is no vibration in the action or barrel when shooting. Thus causing a tighter grouping of shots.

I think I spot a new place, that might have them. It's difficult sometimes, because a store usually have a decent amount of different brand but a few style, expect Glock of course, which I'm glad. Anyways I'll check what they have and then post what I liked so we can share opinions!!
