What is the intended purpose of the rifle?

Any of the rifles mentioned would do. I'd go with the Weatherby Vanguard but that's just a personal preference.

Pick them up, see which ones feel best for you.

Go for the Remmy 700 as most are just simply fine rifles. Most sub $700 rifles don't stay that way. There are more add-ons, whistles, and bells for the Remmy than most of the others to satisfy your future desires.

in my mind its a tie for the a bolt 2 and weatherby. one has more function and the other more luxury. never been a rummy fan.. and i don't have much experience in the tikka

Of all you listed, Tikka has the best trigger and accuracy as good or better than all of them. Most of guys who build guns on here will look for the Tikka action. Only weakness would be the stock.

Have you looked at and handled a Tikka? It's very cheap looking. The Vanguard S2 is quality all over -- better than a Remington 700, and in my experience, more accurate. And I would dispute that the Tikka is more accurate than the Vanguard.

The one that never gets mentioned...the Model 70. I think that with a synthetic stock it can be had for under 700. Its got the right stuff.
