Of the rifles you mention I would prefer the CRF Model 70 simply because I live in a very harsh climate and I feel the Mauser type feeding and claw extraction is superior to anything else in mud, snow and ice.
Have a nice evening, Rabon...

IMHO it's tough to beat the feel of the Browning A-Bolts. The bolt throw is very smooth and the rifle just fits me like a glove.

if it's shotguns then i'd go with browning. the browning citori line is great for us poor folk who can't afford the really nice O/U.

for rifles, i'd go with remington. mostly because i already have a couple and am used to the action and safety position.

All are fine weapons, but I have always had Remington Rifles for hunting.

I guess if for no other reason is that they are what I was born and raised on. That is all my Father and Grandfathers and Uncles ever really owned (except for a couple of Marlin and Winchester .30/.30's.) Since I had good experiences with them I never bought anything different.

Thanks alot...I see now how narrow minded my purchases have been so I guess I'll have to go buy a couple of other brands to add to my collection.

Westicle, If I were hunting in the land of BIG bears, I'd prefer the Winchester. The controlled round feeding might be worth it's weight in gold.

PS: Sorry I barked at you the other day. Everybody has a bad day now and again.

I am partial to the 700 Rem. I have shot all (all shoot great), and love the Remington most, probably cuz its mine. I am biased, but am sure no matter what you get, you will have no problems, and will soon be as biased as we all are.

As for me, I believe there is a reason that Remington has been allowed to advertise over the years that it's model 700 is the most accurate out of the box production firearm made. And of course being that I have owned the 700 BDL in .308 since 1978 and have had absolutely no failures with it makes me somewhat biased. I know the Winchester model 70 has a similar reputation and makes a fine firearm as does Browning. I think it is more of a personal preferance than anything else. Go with what pleases your eye and feels good in your hands and I'm sure you'll be happy.

Browning, because they are very accurate and dependable. They also fit my very well.

Remington rifles and shotguns only for me.

Rem 870 SG and plan on getting a Rem 700 bolt action in 300 win mag at the end of the summer.

Good quality, durable, and easy access to parts, upgrades, and service.

My newest addition will be (still in Lay a way) a Browning A-Bolt medallion in 308. Why this gun? I like the shorter, lighter rifle in the short action. I like the top mounted safety and the short smooth bolt of the Browning. This gun has the muzzlebreak and the Boss system so it should be easy on the shoulder too. To be honest though, I was looking for a short, light 308 and this rifle was in stock, I like the Brownings for quality and looks but if it had been a Remington model 7, I'd have bought that too. I have shot the Browning rifles and I'm sure I won't be disapointed.

I'm holding out for a Ruger compact in .30 cal or bigger. I've got a M77 stainless/synthetic now and like it, its just too damn big!
It always hits where I aim, no complaints.

I have a Winchester 70 pre 64, Remington 700, and a Weatherby MkV lightweight.
the winchester is sweet, the Remington is solid and balanced, and the Weatherby is smooth and fast.
I choose the REMINGTON!!

Well, I would have to say Remington, cuz that is where my money is going to be going in a few weeks (or days, depends ). I am looking at a Remington 700 Mountain Rifle in .30-06. Have always wanted one to hunt with, and figure that I will for this coming season before I am off in the Navy. But the people around me have also had good experiences with Rugers, Savages and Winchesters. Ask my uncle about the Savage: it was the first left-handed boltgun available and he has had his for quite a while. Business and competition being what they are, I don't think anybody can survive selling a sub-standard product. They will all suffice. (Oh yeah, and I say it should be an '06 or a .308, but I'm probably a little biased ;f . Everybody I've ever hunted with has one or the other, except my dad who uses a .30/30.)

I'm partial to Remington. I think they have the best stock barrels in the industry. I'd get a 700BDL in 308 or 7mm-08 or some other short calibre. I really like the .270, 25-06 and 30-06, but I don't like the long bolt throw necessary with these.

They're all good... but my pick for a bolt gun would be Savage or Tikka. I'm lefthanded, and though "the big 3" you mentioned do make lefty versions, the selection of calibers is very limited. Only Savage and Tikka offer my favorite calibers (.308 and .280 Rem) in a lefty. But for an all around everyday rifle.. hunting, self defense from critters, etc, my 1st choice would be a SS Marlin Guide Gun in either .45-70 or .450 Marlin with a ghost ring sight system. Rugged, dependable, handy to carry, powerful, fast follow up shots, and the accuracy is very surprising. Much cheaper than the "big 3" bolt guns, too.

OKay, I went with a Remington Mtn Rifle, but went for the .260 instead of the .30-06. So what? I'm a wimp, and need the smaller caliber. But now I can guarantee where my shots are going, almost every time, I am NOT concentrating on avoiding flinch, and I know that I will be back on target about 2 milliseconds faster than with the -06. Those milliseconds count! Besides, I like the penetration potential of those 6.5mm bullets. Topped with a Leupold 2-7x scope, it is one sweet and fast handling combination.
