Personally the browning will prolly hold it's value the most but us still a great gun. A gun that will be a little cheaper in price but an amazing gun would be a weatherby. I have two one in a .270 and a Sub-MOA .308 and they are very accurate and very dependable. But browning, weatherby, remmington, Winchester and savage are awesome guns.

Beretta Tikka T3
T/C Icon or Venture
Remm 700
Ruger M77
Browning X-bolt
Win Model 70
Any others(?)
I understand that many of these guns will serve me well and it is more the shooter than his weapon, but my question is which of these would represent a quality/reliable rifle and a good investment?
and if any, is there anything that is a ripoff and should be avoided?
I wouldn't recommend hunting rabbits with any of the above-mentioned calibers. But for deer my choice would be the REM 700 in 270 win. Very flat shooting cal with an accuracy potential clambering setting on an action that is known for its accuracy. Plus sky is the limit with respect to upgrades, I think everyone makes an after market part for that rifle. Resale value will prolly be fair but the rifle doesn't cost that much to start so what can you expect?

Good luck with your gun hunt.
