Need some advice for new rifle

I am going to part ways with my m70 to try and find a gun that suits my needs better. I would like to get a rifle with a medium heavy barrel contour with a good synthetic stock or a laminate stock that will shoot at least moa Preferably in 300 win mag. Do not want to brake the bank or I would have one built. So I am looking at factory.

I hear some say the new Remingtons are not what they used to be. Lost some faith in Winchester. I hear savages shoot but not fond of the looks or the feel. I like the browning eclipse but on the fence on a thumbhole for hunting. Plus I hear there is not much aftermarket support if needed.

Gun will be used for long range hunting and fun shooting. Any suggestions?

Re: Need some advice for new rifle

Picked up some tikkas at gander mountain last night. Stock seems thin for my liking especially with a magnum round.

Sendero is a definite thought. Actually set up just the way I want one but my local gun shop tells me they have been sending a fair amount of Remingtons back because they are leaving the factory with problems. Has anyone had much experience with a newer sendero?
