    Remington model 700 VS. Winchester model 70?

  • #2
    Did not the Remington 700 beat the Winchester 70 in the F&S greatest gun contest?
    I like the Remington ad that says with over 5 million model 700 Remington's sold, China does not have the largest army in the world.

      I thought we just did this---along with every other red vs. green, wet vs. dry, light vs. dark and Godzilla vs. the Zombies question conceivable.

        For hunting: "The Rifleman's Rifle" all the way
        For target shooting: The old 700 because it has a smidgen more accuracy, and as D.E.P said it's all about smidgens.

                The question has been asked several times before. Both are good guns and as others have said it is a Ford vs. Chevy debate. Get the one you like the best. Saying that I own four Model 70's.

                  This question resurfaces from time to time. I own examples of both models and both perform gratifyingly well. Among the sporterweights and featherweights, I seem to reach for the Winchester Model 70s. Among my varminters, I seem to reach for the Rem Model 700s. I didn't plan it that way, but I accumulated them and the choices developed that way.

                    I own both and enjoy them equally. The Model 70 is a Featherweight and a bit more enjoyable to carry when stalking, but the Remington is the more accurate of the two.

                      can't I like them both? I think both are fine rifles. I do prefer the 3 pos. saftey and the extractor of the model 70. One negative for Rem. is they no longer offer the 700 BDL in .308. And it is the exact reason why I chose the Model 70 featherweight over the 700. I'm not regretting that decision either because the model 70 really is shooting great and it looks gorgeous. But overall I think both rifles are really good hunting tools and will serve you well for years to come.

                        use to own a Remington 700 in 270 and one in 7mm mag.The 700 has a defective safety that makes some go off and fire unexpectedly when moving safety from safe to fire.almost shot a friend.got rid of it that next week to a gunsmith.I then bought a Winchester model 70 in 7mm mag and couldn't be happier.It out shoots the Remington as well.

                          I bought a used Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in 30-06 in 1966 and used it on white tail deer in the East Texas woods and out in the SW Texas brush country for many years with great success. About 1995, I had problems with the trigger and safety and had to take it to a gunsmith for repairs. I had inherited my father's 1962 Remington 700 ADL in 30-06, so I put the Leupold 3x9 Vari X from the Winchester on it and took the 150 grain hand loads that I had been using with the Winchester out to the rifle range and the Remington 700 would do everything that the Winchester would do and never miss a step. Also had good success on White Tail Deer with the Remington ADL. As far as I am concerned, both of them are excellent rifles .

                            No doubt, Trump will prevail Nov 4th.
