Tough choice. I'm partial to the 700s simply because they are made in the USA oppposed to the Browning being made in Japan. You did pick an excellent caliber though.

Between those 2, Xbolt. I would check out the Win model 70 as well. A 7-08 Featherweight wouldn't suck.

Remington 700 if you are going to spend the money for a good one. Don't fool with the cheaper ones.

I'd also suggest a Kimber like we donated to the young man a little while back. Super nice guns that hold their value well.
