what's wrong with the Marlin X7 actions?

I loved my 700 back in the Early 90s. Great gun. Even took it to Eastern Europe and Russia. It was great quality and survived the harsh environment. I would not touch a new 700 with a ten foot pole. I hated the quality. I bought a CZ instead.

My daddy always loved Chevys but he drove Ford because he couldn't afford the Chevy. I shoot and hunt with Remingtons, but I love pre 64 Winchesters!

There other brands that sell more guns. But you rarely find Browning rifles on the used rack except from an estate. People that buy them LIKE them.
I have done a lot of research, and thinking about it, and my next

bolt action will definitely be a Browning X-Bolt in 30.06.

As to 30.06, I reload, and YES, I know what I'm doing, and

I'm doing it, anyway.

and Winchester M70's are not the only Mauser copies. there are many others as well.
The pre 64 M70 and M700 had the Mauser style claw extractor which gave you controlled feed and was unquestionably a superior action thats not to say the post 64 models are junk they are fine guns but the action is indeed less.
I own a Win 70 in .270 and a Rem 700 in 30-06 both are post 64 and both are superbly accurate and I would never part with either one.

If your going with Browning, which is a fine rifle, you might want to also look at the A-bolt?
