While not listed, don't forget Browning's X bolt.

A bolt, X bolt or T-3 are all great choices.

Are you set on those? Many other fantastic options at a similar price.
Model 77, model 70, rem 700, howa 1500, and any savage.

If you MUST have one or the other i would suggest the browning.
I have experience with a few brownings and they have been great handguns and rifles. Never shot anything tikka.

I would go with the model 70. All american made. And the bolt is one piece as opposed to 2 or 3.

I love my tikka t3. I was real close to the Browning x bolt as well. I feel like the tikkas trigger was much crisper (and adjustable down to 2lbs), and the action was smooth as it gets. I have let 2 of my friends shoot it and they both went and bought one. It's by far my favorite rifle.

Don't promote winchester as all american , american made , Belium owned company like browning.

Buy what just feels best and has the best features that you want , you know know what shoots best till you go to the range.
