Look at post #2, that's where it started.

And yes, we should be thankful we have choices, thank God we have Remington 700 as a choice, or else I'd be counting raindrops for a hobby instead of guns and shooting.

    You might want to read it again; it's clearly an unbiased and sound response.

    Yes, but that is clearly the first post that mentioned both brands.

    Again, he remained "unbiased" to his recommendations.

    Hey now! It was unbiased between Rem and Savage. Besides, I don't prefer either over the other for straight hunting rifles. Besides, most of my rigs are Brownings...

    Exactly! That even made it better coming from a Browning fan.

    Re: Ruger M77 Magnum Hunter

    I dont have a problem with ruger. My dads 20 year old M77 MKII 7mm RM with a non free floating barrel and non bedded action shoots well under MOA @ 100 yards. My Ruger M77 Hawkeye Predator 6.5 Creedmoor is a under 1/4 moa gun @ 100 yards. I havent seen a ruger have issues. I must say id have to pick a savage over a remmy just because of bad personal experiences with a few remingtons. Im not really bias to any brand. I own a savage and a ruger and have shot a couple brownings and like them all. Now remmys arent a bad gun. Alot of people have had good luck with them and its still a very popular rifle(just look at the after market world) ive just had bad experiences is all. Whether they were flukes or not i have no idea.
