BTW- if you ever run across a 452 American CZ in the 17Mach2 caliber snag it up...I have 2 of them and both after installing an aftermarket trigger will drill bullet after bullet through the same hole and is a bunch cheaper to enjoy than the 17HMRs
Ray, I have the 452-2E, which is a heavy bbl. and with Wolf Match at 50yd. it shoots one ragged hole(10 shots). I've never shot the Savage, but can't beleive it could shoot a lot better. Nothing against Savage, but don't think you'd be dissapointed with the CZ. JMO
Have 3 savages 2 with accutriggers one with an aftermarket target trigger (forgot the brand). I was so satisfied with my first I had to buy another one to just see if it was as good as the first and yes it was then I wanted a large bore and bought a 338 110ba and wow their just awesome guns. I would never never think about buying anything else but that being said I've never shot a cz but I would assume they can compete so it's just your preference.
