Both are nice rifles, I have a Savage 12FV and a 700 (larger caliber though) and get good performance out of each. My 12FV was my first Savage rifle (now have 3 with a 4th on the verge of folowing me home) and it is a real tack driver. It has never been hard to handload ammo for it that really makes it shine. Also the accutrigger is superb and can be user adjusted safely and easily which is what caused me to buy it. Every other rifle I got OTB had to have a trigger job to make it shootable.
Sounds like the Savage has the features you want out of the box anyway so why not go for it?
