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?

    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?
