I have a decision to make about a new rifle
I am considering buying a replacement rifle for the one my Son claimed.
The choices I am considering are
Winchester M70 Featherweight Stainless in 30-06 with a walnut stock and moa trigger. A laminated stock isn't offered...
Ruger M77 Hawkeye Stainless in 30-06 with a laminated stock and the hawkeye trigger.
How does the group think these compare?
I think i would chose the winchester,the reviews of the new model 70's have been positive.I dont wanna start an argument but the rugers ive seen are hit or miss in the accuracy dept.(imho).Have you looked at a CZ550(30/06)hammer forged barrel, mauser action, good adj trigger with the option of a set trigger,alot more gun for less money.
Ruger. for me any time ruger is one of the options, its always gona be ruger.
X2 on the Ruger
Have not heard any complaints on the way the Rugers shoot expecially the M77's
Both weapons are even in all departments, but between these two choices I'd probably sway a little toward the Ruger also.
My semi-auto's are Remingtons and my bolt actions are Savage. Can't help you in that decision one bit. Sorry . . . .
Ruger, or go look at Remingtons. But for me it would be Ruger over Winchester.
Winchester would be my pick of the ones in your list.
I have both(older models) 77 and M-70, they both shoot great. As far as Featherweight, I personally don't care for a super-light rifle, I feel a long gun with a little more weight is a lot more stable, especially when shooting offhand. They are both comparable as far as features go, sounds to me like you would rather have a lam stock. If that's the case, your choice is solved!
Weight is the thing I need to shed as I don't like heavy rifles anymore. I wouldn't want to shoot 300mag in a 6 lb rifle but a 260 Rem with a 140 gr would be a great deer rifle in a light weight model. I guess you have to decide what will work best for the $'s spent. You know women knew that buying/shopping really is fun, and they tried to keep us out of that loop. Have fun shopping and let us know what you brought home.
