Ok guys I will be getting a new rifle soon. Right now I am looking at either a Tikka T3, Remington 700sps, or T/C Venture. Thinking about a 300wsm. Which of the 3 would you pick?

I would go with a Tikka or Remington based on how you like the feel.
I have 2 T/C rifles and like them, but the Tikka and Remingtons are better

700sps and then the T3.
It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

Yeah at first I had my head wrapped around the Remington but have started leaning towards the Tikka. Looks like thats the way to go!

I shoot a Rem. and the accuracy is great, even with a factory bbl., I understand the Tikka is just as good . If the Tikka has detachable mags, that's what I'd go with...learned the hard way last weekend!

Love my 700 300 win mag built by rws..

But my 6.5x55 tikka gets used more.. love me some tikka. Triggers from factory are amazing and bolt is smooth as butter
