Browning for me. I haven't shot a browning that wasn't accurate. I am sure there are some out there that are not accurate but I haven't found one yet.

Browning! Not knocking the Ruger but I have had some browning a bolts that would flat out shoot! and I have never got a ruger to shoot as good as them.

Yeah I am starting to lean towards the Browning it only has 20 down the tube the Ruger has 2:30 down the tube. I am starting to think the browning maybe the better choice for long range gun out of the 2

I agree with Browning, but building a rifle implies rebarreling and perhaps numerous other modifications. If that's the case, there's probably not much real difference.
