Default Buying a new rifle...need opinions.

3 choices here gents......that is all. If you could own 1 of these rifles to hunt deer with which one would you choose...regardless of price...and why?

1.) Bolt action 30-06

2.) Bolt action .308

3.) Thompson Center Encore single shot in either 30-06 or .308


NOW.....what in your opinion is the best brand of rifle that you chose?

Browning A-bolt

Remington 700

Tikka

CZ 550 American

Winchester Model 70

Thompson Center




I want the "why's" here guys.....I'm finally dumping my Marlin 336C in .35 Remington after 2 years of missed deer and massive frustration. I do a LOT of stalking and need a rifle that can reach out and touch a deer at about 100 yds. I need fast and flat / I need lightweight, I need smaller size.

Any suggestions?
