I own both as well. Older Remingtons are just flat better. Model 70 is a hard one to pass up. Trigger on the Model 70 is just great out of the box. I had one of those bad Remington CDF triggers that would go bang when the safety was flipped to the fire position. After market options has more offerings for the Remington versus Winchester.

Perhaps you could reach out to your gunsmith on which model he prefers to work on, since that 7mm08 is going to spoil you for years to come and your going to want a new barrel at some point.

I have 4 of the M70 Extreme Weather rifles in various calibers and every **** one of them shoots well under MOA consistently with handloads. Wasn’t an arduous task finding a load for any of them either. I’m very skeptical about the rifles that are coming out of the “Big Green” factories right now.....
I agree...It is sad when the oldest manufacturer in the US has the quality issue Remington has seen in the last 10 years. I hope they come out of THIS bankruptcy sale stronger. That will only keep the industry healthy and the offerings from all manufactures pure quality for years to come.
Happy chuten

I currently own 5 Model 70 Winchesters and only one Model 7 Remington, So I think you could guess witch one I one get. My Model 7 is in 260 Rem and I had a Hart barrel added to replace the thin factory barrel. It shoots great with the Hart barrel, but I love the Winchester for the way they feel and come to shoulder. I also like the three position safety the claw extractor and the smooth action. If I were to get into and accuracy contest the Model 7 probably would win, but for a hunting rifle I would take my Winchester in 270 Win, 308 Win, 6.5 CM, 270WSM or 30-06 over the Rem.
