Of the rifles you listed, for the money it would be tough to beat the Marlin.
It has an Accu type trigger(pretty fail), better feeling stock with a good soft pad, is pretty accurate and they come with Weaver style bases. The TC's are heavy, the Remingtons are twice the money and truly the only value besides would be the Howas, and they are a little more. PS buy the Marlin soon as the people (Freedom Group) who own Remington just bought them...

You forgot to point out a negative thing about the savage, other than the marlin is a copy... I'd go with a savage, there is a nice aftermarket so you could change anything you might not like. Plus you can do everything yourself!

Out of the two you named it would be the 30-06. If i got a choice it would be the 7mm rem mag or 300. wsm in a browning a-bolt or Remington model 700

Tikka is hard to beat in the lower price range, I also like savage for all the options available in aftermarket parts and easy barrel swap. I would go with the 308 over 30-06, near identical ballistics and better accuracy usually.
