I favor the Remington 700, mainly because I have one chambered in .223.
Although both the .300 mag and the 30-06 are fine calibers there are many others you should consider. some that will recoil much less than the .300 mag. these are the .243 or the 6mm Rem (better ballistics than the .243) the .270 and if legal in your state the .223 which is very inexpensive to shoot by comparison to the other choices mentioned. any of these especially the .243 and the .223 can easily become a favorite varmint rifle.
