to the guy who hates Remington just so you know if you like military rifles the model 700 is the military's m27 bolts are smooth an I have never heard of a bolt action jamming I think it's impossible actually the extractor may be damaged from some one slamming the bolt closed and as far as savage you get what you pay for I'd research them

buy a ruger before a savage savage is a nice gun with nice features but if your into quality spend the money however if your not shooting more than 400 yards buy whatever you think looks nice they all shoot

I have a rem 700 .308 and the bolt was ruff feeling at first but a little metal polish and some time working the bolt and it's great it has a little play when moving the bolt to extract the shell but when closed its tight. For the $ I have in the gun I can't complain about it, it's worth double what I have in it I think. Great trigger out of the box i though too I read good and bad thing about the X mark triggers but I like mine just fine. It's crisp and always in the same spot. Great buy I think.

play the victim, be the victim

I have a Remington 700 AAC-SD. Great action and trigger. Threaded barrel and good twist rate. With the money you save over the 700P you can buy a better stock and solid one piece scope rail. Can't go wrong.

If I were buying a new rifle in that price range I'd get a Tikka T3.

Other than that I would recommend a Winchester model 70. It is by far the most accurate rifle I've ever shot. In it's price range I just don't see anything topping it.

I will agree the model 70 the riflemans rifle, nothin like the legend. I have many different makes an models, but my win model 70 s are what feels right to me. Altho If I could afford more of the christensen arms rifles I would have a room full

You know i should say military surplus rifles, like my mint condition mosin nagant m91/30 7.62X54R i take out more than any weapon in my arsenal and i trust and know its ment to get dirty of course every chance im outside its that gun or my savage .243 winchester mdl110 i perfer those two more than a slouch of a rifle like the remington 700 or worse the infamous remington 770 that was new outa the box that decided to place hell and piss me off ive never cared for Remington, ill always use Savage arms and military surplus rifles, but dont let me discourage anybody thats my opinion carry on as for the fellar lookin for a new rifle GOOD LUCK THE CHOICES ARE ENDLESS!!! Good hunting and God bless you all

If you look at the Tikka T3 (excellent rifle) also look at the CZ 550 American in 308. Walnut stock, set trigger, Machined in scope rail and rings come with it.
JP it come in 6.5x55 also.
