Re: Need some help. cant decide brand of rifle.

Everyone has a different opinion on which is best but for me I'd say Remington 700. For a lot of reasons but mainly it has the most available in aftermarket parts such as stocks or triggers. I personally believe that they are one of the most dependable. And the fact that they tend to shoot pretty good outa the box isnt bad either

I gotta say get the Vanguard. I have a Remington Model 700, a Vanguard, and a Savage.

Go with the Vanguard, it's built like a tank, it's accurate, it's priced right, and it has really nice workmanship compared to the Savage or Remington.

Now, if you really want to pimp out your gun with all the bells and whistles then the M700 is better, but in my opinion, the Vanguard is pretty much king of the "budget guns".

You might want to expound on what you already have and what you'd like the new rifle to do for you.

Any of the ones you listed will be more than adequate for your stated requirements.

So, go with the one that you like the best and don't look back.

What rscott5028 is correct but I will cast my vote for the Remington 700.
