    interesting ?

    Never owned a Savage, but if this shoots MOA or better, this could be my first Savage.

    I have a Savage A22 FV FDX XP rifle that was a limited edition that came out in 2017. It's similar to the current A22 FV-SR in that it has a 16.5 inch threaded barrel. It also has a FDE stock and came with a 25-round Butler Creek magazine in addition to the standard 10-round rotary mag along with a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot already mounted. It is almost, but not quite, as accurate as the B22 FV-SR. The rifle may be as accurate, but I was not when shooting it because the A22 "Accutrigger" feels nothing like an Accutrigger in the B22 or Mark II series of rifles. It's a lot heavier, gritty, and a lot less pleasurable to shoot than the B22 (bolt) series. I looked at these online yesterday and immediately thought that there is no way that I'd put money into the A22 version. The B22 on the other hand might be fun to shoot.

    If you want to shoot base class with a Savage totaling near the limit of $1050, I'd probably get a B22 FV-SR instead and spend the extra on a better optic. But there is one thing that a sharp-eyed friend pointed out that could change the equation. He mentioned in the big rifles the red triggers will go down into the ounces. A one pound or less Accutrigger from the factory would certainly be a draw to this rifle. So I decided to wait for some reviews and see how it fairs before spending any money on one.

    Here’s a CTD review on it. I have always hated Savage triggers, which is why I only own a MKII
    With a new trigger this could be interesting. Seems to shoot everything very well, although it was a 30yd target
