I love how NO ONE who has a bitch has posted ANY information or pictures to refute the evidence on the first page.

Fact is: a 'better' action is not available in this price range.

Why? Because the American Union Scale is more for the worker than the consumer.

After skimming through this thread, there are several years, and a lot of opinions, as well as information contained in it. Times change. Is the Winchester Model 70 even produced on American soil any longer? I haven't been following Winchester since they made their "comeback" a few years ago. I know they've reintroduced a "new", jazzed up Model 94 recently, with a MSRP well into 4 digits. I'm only guessing because Winchester and Browning are now owned by Cerberus. But are both Miroku guns?

It's hard to pick a "Best" action. Is it for hunting, Benchrest shooting, Bullseye shooting, or whatever.

And when you consider Remington 700, Remington XB, Winchester 70, SAKO, Weatherbt Mark V, etc........
I guess if I had to pick, I'd say Remington 700, but there are so many good actions out there, and so many different uses for them..........

I've owned a Remington 700 in .270 since 1979 and have used it almost every year since to kill dear with. For me and what I do it's the best. Were I to be nailed down to one gun to have in a remote place I'd likely go with a 98K Mauser or Springfield. Either would be rebarreled to a 30-06 most likely. They're made for such places, easy to fix if something breaks and a very simple trigger. Still I love the pre 64 Model 70 and my Weatherby MK5 is a favorite, made in USA too.

Ok I don't feel any smarter after reading these long winded posts - just frustrated. Opinions vary, that much is clear. This reminds me of the old Miller Lite commercials, "less filling/tastes great". There is no best rifle. Clearly

Sure there is a best rifle. It's the one you personally can drive a nail with at 100 yards
