Re: Where are all the Winchesters???

For most people "the best rifle" is whatever they grew up with. My dad was a remington guy and so that's what we grew up with. My first rifle was a 700bdl 7mm STW Rem that just never would shoot right. After five trips back to remington I gave up on it and went with a M70 in the same claiber with the BOSS.

It was a fantastic shooter and from that point on I never was happy without at least one M70.

I recently bought another M70 in 300wm just to give me a light weight "truck gun" that was easy to get out for quick shots and it shoots exceptionally well. It is the newer version with the controlled round feed.

The Remington 700 is just the go to for most people who want a custom or want to customize an existing rifle because of all the aftermarket parts and gear that's available for it.

As I recently found when looking to upgrade the stock on the M70 300wm you are just far more limited in choices than you are with the Rem 700's.

Functionally there are man things I prefer about the M70 however so odds are pretty good I'll always own at least one or two of them into the future.
