Tikka T3 lite vs Remington 700 SPS

Hello to all, is my first post and I'm writing from Italy. Should I buy a rifle for hunting in the mountains ( chamois,deer and wild bore). I want a rifle that can shoot up to 500 yardes and I have to decide between the Tikka T3 lite and Remington 700 SPS in 270 winchester caliber. The tikka bareel is 22" while the Remington is 24".In a long shots that can make a difference in accuracy? Thanks to all and sorry for my bad English.

Welcome to LRHunting !

Odds are the Tikka will outshoot the remington out of the box.
The 2" barrel length difference between the tikka a remington is pretty much irrelevent -imo-.
Either rifle will make a fine deer rifle so get which ever one feels the best to you.

Best of luck -Mike

The tikka will have a better barrel than the Remington. The only things the remington has over the tikka is the clip and the availability of aftermarket parts. Tikka's are very very good rifles for the money.

The Tikka is likely to be more accurate. Have you though about a 270 WSM? It's a very accurate cartridge and will out perform the 270 Win.
