I'm looking at purchasing a rifle in a 308 caliber,and have narrowed it down to these two and am looking for some first hand experience,good and bad.

I am somewhat familiar with the Ruger M77, but not this particular model,and I have not seen Savage Hog Hunter in person. I realize they are apples and oranges as far as how they are stocked, but they are the length I,m looking for, and they both have iron sights.

All input will be appreciated. Thanks.
