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.
I have 2 of the old stainless/synthetic skeleton stock model Rugers (7mm RemMag & 7mm-08), that I have had for 16 years (7mm-08) and 12 years (7mm RemMag), and they are both tack drivers. Unfortunately the aftermarket realm doesn't throw much support for them, other than EGW making scope rails that you have to drill and tap the receivers to use (which is genious, I don't know why nobody thought about it sooner) so you won't have to use and buy Ruger brand rings made specifically for that rifle, and a few aftermarket stocks.

If the aftermarket showed more support for them, they would be excellent options for long range builds.

I also have had 2 Browning, and still have one of them. Great guns.

Got a Weatherby Accumark, too. Great guns, but mine needs a new barrel, since Weatherby decided to screw the pooch on mine, by building it on a Monday or Friday afternoon... My smith said the rifling looks like someone did it with an icepick, and the rifle has less than 250 rounds down it. I will most likely be sending it back to Weatherby for a rebarrel.

I have a whole lot of other crap too, so don't think I'm 100% Remington 700.....I'm just 100% anti Savage. I'd own just about anything over one of them. LOL

Re: Ruger M77 Magnum Hunter

z71rad88,

Thus far, there's one that is totally anti Savage. Hopefully, we have provided you some insight to help you in your decision process.

There's also a poll on most accurate rifle out of the box that might be worth your time.

Good luck!

Indeed. Thanks for letting me know about that poll, I'll have to check that out.

Don't know a whole lot about it but the Browning AB3 in .300 Win Mag has 26" barrel for $599 MSRP (Browning Firearm, AB3 Composite Stalker, Item 035800229, UPC 023614398271)
