    I need a new hunting rifle. Thinking of the remington 7400, remington 700 or the savage model 10/110. Any advice on these rifle's and what do you think of the accesories for them. I am thinking either .270 win or a .308 win
    Thanks for you input

    it all comes down to how much you are willing to spend my friend because they are all good choices.

    My ex-boss has gone hunting in most of the southern states,trips to Canada and Mexico and always used remington semi-auto in 30-06,successfully.

    Im not much of a hunter but I do know that your poll has good choices,its up to you.

    i'd say get one of the savage or howa rifle packages. you can get the howa for less than $400, or a savage for under $500. if i was doing the buying, i'd probably walk out with a howa.

    You haven't told us your priorities, so not knowing how you plan to use them, we can only make the most general comments.

    Remington is the best made between the two companies, and between those two models, the 700 is a better machine, IMHO--I've sold about 50 700s at my job, and maybe (?) 1 semi. The 700 is just so inherently versatile, and you can do just about anything to them; keep it stock, free float it & glass bed, etc. Plus, you can use a wider variety of loads than in a semi.

    And the 7400 is just kinda weird; shoulders strange, feels like a shotgun.

    As far as accessories, the 700 probably has more toys out there; an incredible number of people use them, and the market supports them well.

    "Feeling like a shotgun" has some obvious advantages- thus my asking about priorities.

    I would say either of the bolt guns would be a good choice.If you like the feel of the 7400 take a look at the 7600/760 I really believe over the long run you will appreciate the reliability of the pump.

    Model 700 in .270 all the way. I got my BDL in '87 and it's been my go-to deer rifle for years now, I love it. Just recently picked up an ADL in .270 and love it even more now. With a Burris 3-9x40 Fullfield II and Talley Lightweight mounts, it's the perfect deer rifle IMHO.

    It is really hard to get a bad deer rifle from any of the major manufacturers these days.

    Any of those you mentioned should be as good as the man behind the trigger can make them for all normal hunting chores.

    All of them are great!!! I currently have a 7400 in .270 and a 700 BDL ss 30-06 in my closet. I sighted in a savage 110 in 30-06 tonight for a buddy. It had the new accutrigger, it was a sweet shooting rifle.

    Pablo, a dozen years ago I'd have said 700. Now I'd go with the Savage. It's not as smooth as the Remington, but mine all shoot extremely well. Plenty of accesories for both.........Essex
