I'm more of a Remington man than any others. I thing dollar for dollar you just get more especially the model 700's. Don't overlook a pump rifle in 270-30-06 they are accurate. I grew up with rem shot guns so my first rifle a model 760 rem pump. I still have it and will shoot where I aim. Take a look at the Rem classic models as well as the Rem mountain rifle line they are great rifles!
