Roidz Rule, with all due respect, I disagree. You most certainly CAN go wrong with a Rem 700, as I did.

If I can guide ANYONE away from purchasing a new Remington 700, I consider it a mission. I threw away a lot of money on a very crappy rifle...granted, I may have gotten a 'lemon'...but based upon my research, it is not that uncommon.

Ruger 77, Savage 110 or preferably 10, Winchester 70. Sako. Howa. Tikka.

I would personally take an unissued Yugo Mauser 48 over any new Remington. What a wonderful rifle for less than $225, and the bolt is WAY superior. 8mm Mauser is no slouch.

IMO, any of the above is the way to go. If you've had a great experience with the Rem 700, good for you. I, personally, will never forgive them for the P.O.S. I bought.

Sorry but you MUST have purchased a lemon. The Remington 700 is simply the most basic quality 30.06 rifle out there.

It is a basic staple for all hunters and sniper/starters alike.

I actually cannot fathom why you are bashing this quality piece.

Perplexing.

Roidz Rule - You can't go wrong with a 700. One of the all time great guns. However I like to suggest you consider a Winchester Model 70 with a pre-64 action, also a classic rifle. I own both a 700 and a model 70. If you can find one at a good price you cant go wrong.


A 70 is what I want, but jeez they are proud of those things ($$$$$)..
