Yup. Savage's new rifle comes with a rotary magazine, freefloated barrel, Accutrigger and a barreretaining device similar to the rifle's big bore brothers and sisters. In addition, Savage seems keen on keeping their single-shot roots alive and kicking with an additional WSM Rimfire offering in a low-wall configuration, as is Winchester. My advice would be to go with the Savage offerings because they're both made in America, retail for under $300 and $400 (contrary to posted MSRPs) and, well, they're from Savage, so you know they'll be more accurate than you or I on our best days.
