Default Which gun?

I am looking for a new deer rifle and have narrowed my caliber to a 270 WSM but I can't decide on the gun. Iv picked out four a tikka t3 lite SS, a T/C venture synthetic, a Remington 700 SPS, and a browning x-bolt hunter. Unfortunately I have no experience with any of these. They all fit me well and seem to be quality guns if anyone has experience, advice, or suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
-TJ

Of the 4 choices given, I would get the Tikka if it was for me.

I don't own one, but I have read many raves about the

Browning X-Bolt. It shoots well, and is not picky about

ammo. I'm seriously considering getting one in 30.06.

I'd rate them T/C - Tikka - Browning - Remington.
Overall,the T/C is the best of the bunch.

I have a Venture in 7mm-08 and it is stupid accurate. No issues at all with the rifle.

The last Remington 700 I bought was a BDL in 30-06 back a couple years ago and it was a pile of dog ****. Best I could get was 3 MOA with hand loads.

I do not have any experience with the other brands you mentioned.

I would not hesitate to buy another T/C.

If you are hell bent on the .270 WSM don`t overlook Savage Arms, very fine rifles & will save you 100`s of $$`s....................
