What brand to buy?

Recommended Posts

slick2526

Well I i always see people argueing about wich one is better. remington or savage as far as out of the box accuracy. I decided im going to go with a .30-06. I have not decided the brand yet tho

I have narrowed it down to 3 a savage,remington, or a tika. If some of you would like to give me some opinions of them i would appreciate it. Im not going to be buying one with a heavy target barrel since is going to be mainly for deer hunting. but i will not have sights tho, just a scope. also im looking at one with a wood stock and a blued barrel and then I will buy a synthetic stock afterwards.

Mainly what one will be the most accurate, easiest to adjust the trigger, and best resale value. I dont really plan of selling since im left handed and it will be a left handed bolt. I guess im really looking for accuracy more than anything. so any help would be appreciated. thanks

I have two Tikka's a .223 and a .270WSM both in the T3 lite. I LOVE THEM. I highly recommend a Tikka.

I think they are all fine products. Pick the one you like the best. The Weatherby Vanguard is also a very accurate out of the box gun that is a decent value.

I have two Whitetail Hunter Tikka's, one in 30.06,the other in .270.The action of these guns is the smoothest I have ever owned for a standard(non customized) rifle.Accuracy is right on out of the box.You can't go wrong with a Tikka.

I have a Ruger 77 that is my go-to gun for accuracy. In all its years, it has never had a bit of trouble.

I hate to throw another gun into your mind but I am also Left handed and I shoot a Ruger M77 270. I think it took me about 3 shots to have it in the ten ring and a few more to get it dialed down to take the "10" out of the target. It is always on target and I love to shoot it.

before picking a brand look a little more at what you want. Clip or No Clip. IF you do want a clip check out the differnt styles of clip. Don't buy just because of brand but because of the features you like. Bolt action Browning is hard to beat. I went with Ruger because I like a blocky forend for when I shoot and I like the 3 position safety. Buddy don't like the 3 point safety but went with the Browning because he likes the bolt and the clip. Sometimes I wish my Ruger had a clip but it don't. Go into your dealer when they have guns and see what you like. Looking at a gun online and seeing how it feels in your hands is another. See what you like in your hands and then shop around for that gun.

I looked at all brands in the 25-06 range. I went with the Tikka, the feel of the stock, out of box accuracy, comes with a clip, free floating barrel, safety position, and smooth bolt action really sold me on this gun. And I bought it for the same price as a Remington 700ADL!! I will definitely buy another Tikka...just can't decide whic caliber I need next.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
